A scheme of a good signature analysis by a linear feedback shift register (LFSR) is presented. It works for k-output circuits, even if k is greater than the register length. It is built according to rules which are presented in the correspondence, taking into account error models which are introduced. The rules are derived from a property which is formally shown for one kind of LFSR. However, some of them apply to other LFSR schemes too.
