The interesting bit includes decisions at FreeBSD  to distrust
the hardware RNG on Intel and VIA processors.   Some but not all ARM parts
have hardware RNG logic blocks in their designs.   The hardware RNG  logic
is secret sauce.  Debugging via JTAG etc implies that there are ways to put
all these
logic blocks into a predictable state for testing purposes.



The R-Pi is the most commonly available worthy low cost board with millions
in the wild.
Newer boards like the Beagleboneblack are quicker.
Intel has announced a computer on a stick Win 8.1 and a Linux version with
less RAM.

There is no longer a hardware limitation to start and complete a project
like this ...
