I have work many times with CryptoAPI, both low-level (developing a smart
card CSP, certificate revocation) and high-level (end-user application) so I
should have no problem implementing RNG on top of it.
If I remember correctly there are some RNG tests specified in either FIPS
140 or 186 (been some time). They would make great unit tests so I'll find a
link to that too.
