Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


We propose a new linear array for multiplication in GF(2m) which outperforms most of the existing linear multipliers in terms of the area and time complexity. Moreover we will give a very detailed comparison of our array with other existing architectures for the five binary fields GF(2m),m = 163,233,283,409,571, recommended by NIST for elliptic curve cryptography.
