Linear Feedback Shift Registers are currently used as generators of pseudorandom sequences with multiple applications from communication systems to cryptography. In this work, design and software implementation of LFSRs defined over extended fields GF(2 n ) instead of over the binary field GF(2) are analyzed. The key idea is to take profit of the underlying structure of the processor over which the application is executed. The study has been carried out for diverse extended fields and different… CONTINUE READING
