I have a Ruby implementation of the ISAAC cryptographically secure random 
number generator packaged with Iowa.  Each Crypt::Iowa object is an 
independent source of random numbers.

@random_numbers = Crypt::ISAAC.new

number = @random_numbers.rand(1000)

It does need a little work, but it wouldn't take much to polish it up.
