Many applications need to use numbers to identify records of information that is stored in their databases. Those identifiers cannot have repeated values. Therefore the numbers must be unique.

It is also useful that the unique numbers are also random, so they cannot be easily predicted in a way that people with bad intentions can exploit the fact that they can anticipate future unique numbers generated by an application.

To make sure that a unique number is also randomly generated, it is necessary to verify if the number was already generated by the application, it is necessary to keep track of all numbers generated in the past.

This package provides an API for a service of repositories that keeps track of all unique numbers generated so far, thus making it easier to check available unique numbers from different parts of an application.
