Help text

Provides a hardware random number generator to the kernel.

SECURITY WARNING: It's relatively easy to eavesdrop all generated random numbers from the transport stream with usbmon [software] or special usb sniffer hardware.

Say N, unless your setup[i.e.: embedded system] has no other rng source and you can afford to take the risk.
