Data::Rand::Obscure provides a method for generating random hexadecimal, binary, and base64 strings of varying length.
To do this, it first generates a pseudo-random "seed" and hashes it using a SHA-1, SHA-256, or MD5 digesting algorithm.
Currently, the seed generator is:
join("", <an increasing counter>, time, rand, $$, {})
You can use the output to make obscure "one-shot" identifiers for cookie data, "secret" values, etc.
Values are not GUARANTEED to be unique (see the Data::UUID manpage for that), but should be sufficient for most purposes.
This package was inspired by (and contains code taken from) the the Catalyst::Plugin::Session manpage package by Yuval Kogman
