ABSTRACT
<p><b>Abstract</b>—It is well-known that a class of finite fields <tmath>$GF(2^n)$</tmath> using an optimal normal basis is most suitable for a hardware implementation of arithmetic in finite fields. In this paper, we introduce composite fields of some hardware-applicable properties resulting from the normal basis representation and the optimal condition. We also present a hardware architecture of the proposed composite fields including a bit-parallel multiplier.</p>
INDEX TERMS
