* Random non-zero bytes
*
* The RSA algorithm requires the generation of random non-zero bytes,
* i.e. bytes in the range [0x01,0xff].
*
* This algorithm is designed to comply with ANS X9.82 Part 1-2006
* Section 9.2.1. This standard is not freely available, but most of
* the text appears to be shared with NIST SP 800-90, which can be
* downloaded from
*
* http://csrc.nist.gov/publications/nistpubs/800-90/SP800-90revised_March2007.pdf
*
* Where possible, references are given to both documents. In the
* case of any disagreement, ANS X9.82 takes priority over NIST SP
* 800-90. (In particular, note that some algorithms that are
* Approved by NIST SP 800-90 are not Approved by ANS X9.82.)
