[Mono-dev] Crypto secure random numbers

This probably isn't the best place to ask this question, but...

How does System.Security.Cryptography.RNGCryptoServiceProvider (and similar) handle random number generation?  I am asking this because I am going to use this to generate symmetric encryption keys and I dont want my communications to be vulnerable to attacks against a predictable random number generator.

If the generator is not cryptographically secure, has very few entropic sources, relies on /dev/urandom, etc... please email me back and I will write a proper engine.
