Sets random file.
Pass a file path. The file will be used to read from to seed the random engine for SSL. The more random the specified file is, the more secure the SSL connection will become.

Starting with version 8.0 the plugin will always use UTF-8 encoding for file path on Linux and macOS. For macOS we also do the unicode character normalization for file names for you.
