@xrpwallet. How as a layman can i be sure the code is really generating a random and valid keypair and not just issuing key pairs from a predefined list? This doubt has held me back from setting up cold storage. Some people have pointed me to the relevant parts in the code of a key pair generator however I do not understand the code. 98% sure it is safe but would like to have the 2% doubt removed as well. A Ripple issued or verified wallet would do the trick for me.

You need to either go through the process of becoming knowledgeable and not a "lay man," ask a specific question about what a piece of code you don't understand is doing, or trust in the distributed trust of a piece of open source software that has been reviewed by many people who are knowledgeable about this. I can tell you that it's not issuing keypairs from a predefined list. It's using cryptographically-secure random number generators that are built in as standards to modern browsers. But, you'll have to trust me (and all the other people who have reviewed the code and said the same) unless you can understand it yourse.f
