If interested, check out our old (2001) paper about gaining entropy from
the network delays

'Collecting randomness from the net'
http://citeseer.ist.psu.edu/565210.html
or directly: http://www.crysys.hu/publications/files/BencsathV2001cms.pdf

abstract: Random data in the work is collected from network time delay
measurements and its quality is checked by statistical tests. A
special enhancement: the system of collector-servers is proposed and
analyzed.
