Algorithm 1

The function of RAND_add. RAND_add(void b, int n, double entropy).

Input: n, b, where b is divided into 20-byte-length block bi
//entropy is 0 by default
//md is 20-byte states; s is 1023 bytes PRNG states
for i=1 to n do
 s[p:p+t mod 1023]=s[p:p+t mod 1023] [0:t]
 p=p+t+1 mod 1023
end for
q=min(q+size(b), 1023)
return , s, p, q
