Is RDRAND accessible to a guest OS?

Jump to solution

I can't seem to find any documentation about this one way or another.  Is the RDRAND instruction (a.k.a. Intel Secure Key) exposed/accessible to a guest OS using the latest Player on a system with an Ivy Bridge processor?

Thanks!

Support for RDRAND was introduced with virtual hardware version 9.  As long as your virtual machine has virtual hardware version 9 or greater and RDRAND is available on your physical CPU, it will be available to the guest.
