        May I ask what FreeBSD's entropy sources are?


    I'm surprised you don't already know.  From device noise.


Which class? There are many sorts of said noise (most of which I believe actually work).


Not in answer to your questions, and not specific to FreeBSD, but the following book "Silence on the Wire" provides a good discussion in the weaknesses of systems lacking in entropy.
