 * <p>A simple pseudo-random number generator that relies on a hash algorithm,
 * that (a) starts its operation by hashing a <code>seed</code>, and then (b)
 * continuously re-hashing its output. If no hash algorithm name is specified
 * in the {@link Map} of attributes used to initialise the instance then the
 * SHA-160 algorithm is used as the underlying hash function. Also, if no
 * <code>seed</code> is given, an empty octet sequence is used.</p>
