The no_df tests are o.k. as they are. In fact, OpenSSL supports using the DRBG with or without the derivation function. We ourselves, we are not using the no_df feature. But that does not mean we have to rip it out of our sources. It's there since FIPS 2.0 and it's implemented correctly. A possible use case would be the following: if an application has access to a true RNG then it could replace the get_entropy() callbacks and operate our DRBG without the derivation function. > So I guess I'm still on track with wanting to specify a get_nonce > function for VMS.
