<p><b>Abstract</b>—The circuit complexity of a Massey-Omura normal basis multiplier for a finite field <it>GF</it>(2<super><it>m</it></super>) depends on the key function for multiplication. Key functions with minimum complexity, called minimal key functions, are desirable. This paper investigates the complexity of a key function and reports search results of minimal key functions. A table of minimal key functions for <it>m</it> up to 31 is included.</p>
