CC310 entropy driver

You can use the CC310 entropy driver (entropy_cc310) to generate random data using the Arm CryptoCell CC310 hardware available on the following Nordic SoCs/SiPs:

  • nRF52840

  • nRF5340

  • nRF9160

When used with nRF52840, the CC310 entropy driver gathers entropy by using the CC310 hardware through the nrf_cc3xx_platform library. When used with nRF5340 or nRF9160, the driver behavior depends on whether it is used in an application with or without Cortex-M Security Extensions (CMSE):
