Cryptographic primitives need random numbers to protect the user's data. Random numbers are used for generating secret keys, nonce's, random paddings, initialization vectors, salts etc. Deterministic pseudorandom number generators are useful, but they still need truly random seeds generated by entropy sources in order to produce random numbers.
