libs : optional
runtime components for the Universally Unique ID library
The libuuid library generates and parses 128-bit universally unique
ids (UUIDs). A UUID is an identifier that is unique across both
space and time, with respect to the space of all UUIDs. A UUID can
be used for multiple purposes, from tagging objects with an extremely
short lifetime, to reliably identifying very persistent objects
across a network.
See RFC 4122 for more information.
This package contains the uuidgen program and the uuidd daemon.
The uuidd daemon is used to generate UUIDs, especially time-based
UUID’s, in a secure and guaranteed-unique fashion, even in the face
of large numbers of threads trying to grab UUID’s running on
different CPU’s. It is used by libuuid as well as the uuidgen
