    Question Cryptographically secure random in Excel

    I was wondering is there a way to have a cryptographically secure random in Excels. I know that there are random functions like randbetween(), Rand() and such, but those don't use /dev/random or any other cryptographically secure source that there is for windows (I hear https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CryptGenRandom is deprecated). Is there a very fast and cryptographically secure random number generator for VBA? Something like https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dot...tframework-4.8 or a way to import it for fast randomnumber generator?
    Thank you www.excelforum.com!

    Re: Cryptographically secure random in Excel

    After a few days, I am guessing nobody here as any concrete suggestions. I don't either, but you included a link to a .NET class, so put "access .NET class from VBA" into my favorite internet search engine and found a few pages.

    I did not understand much of it, but perhaps it will give you something to start from, and something for others more knowledgeable than I to comment on.
