Mostly just historical happenstance, although there was concern that a
random number generator (see
http://www.boost.org/doc/libs/1_35_0/libs/random/index.html) that is
described as "cryptographically secure" actually be cryptographically
secure. Thus only random number generators accepted by experts in the
field as "cryptographically secure" should be given that designation, IMO.
