Performance Increasing Approaches For Binary Field Inversion

Vladislav Kovtun and Maria Bulakh

Abstract: Authors propose several approaches for increasing performance of multiplicative inversion algorithm in binary fields based on Extended Euclidean Algorithm (EEA). First approach is based on Extended Euclidean Algorithm specificity: either invariant polynomial u remains intact or swaps with invariant polynomial v. It makes it possible to avoid necessity of polynomial v degree computing. The second approach is based on searching the "next matching index" when calculating the degree of the polynomial, since degree polynomial invariant u at least decreases by 1, then it is possible to use current value while further calculation the degree of the polynomial.
