According to this

The STM32 chip used on the NetDuino has a built-in random number generator.


Other .NET MF boards have firmware which expose this through the RandomNumberGenerator class
in the System.Security.Cryptography namespace. Does the NetDuino firmware exposes this
in any way?


If it is exposed through the classes in System.Security.Cryptography it won't help at this point
since I can't even load those assemblies on the NetDuino at this time.


If there was a way to call C code from C# that would provide a solution, but not sure NetDuino supports that?

the official netduino firmware does not support that, but you could easily implement that yourself, good luck!
