20090157784 | DETERMINING A MESSAGE RESIDUE - A description of techniques of determining a modular remainder with respect to a polynomial of a message comprised of a series of segments. An implementation can include repeatedly accessing a strict subset of the segments and transforming the strict subset of segments to into a smaller set of segments that are equivalent to the strict subset of the segments with respect to the modular remainder. The implementation can also include determining the modular remainder based on a set of segments output by the repeatedly accessing and transforming and storing the determined modular remainder. | 06-18-2009 |

20090310775 | Using a single instruction multiple data (SIMD) instruction to speed up galois counter mode (GCM) computations - In one embodiment, an encryption operation may be performed by obtaining a product of a carry-less multiplication using multiple single instruction multiple data (SIMD) multiplication instructions each to execute on part of first and second operands responsive to an immediate datum associated with the corresponding instruction, and reducing the product modulo g to form a message authentication code of a block cipher mode. Other embodiments are described and claimed. | 12-17-2009 |

20100020965 | METHOD FOR SPEEDING UP THE COMPUTATIONS FOR CHARACTERISTIC 2 ELLIPTIC CURVE CRYPTOGRAPHIC SYSTEMS - In some embodiments, an apparatus and method for speeding up the computations for characteristic 2 elliptic curve cryptographic systems are described. In one embodiment, a multiplication routine may be pre-computed using a one iteration graph-based multiplication according to an input operand length. Once pre-computed, the multiplication routine may be followed to compute the products of the coefficients of the polynomials representing a carry-less product of two input operands using a carry-less multiplication instruction. In one embodiment, the pre-computed multiplication routines may be used to extend a carry-less multiplication instruction available from an architecture according to an input operand length of the two input operands. Once computed, the carry-less product polynomial produces a remainder when the product is computed modulo a programmable polynomial that defines the elliptic cryptographic system to form a cryptographic key. Other embodiments are described and claimed. | 01-28-2010 |

20100153830 | CARRY BUCKET-AWARE MULTIPLICATION - An apparatus comprising an integrated circuit configured to accept a plurality of operands; multiply the operands producing an result in a first binary format; and distribute the result in the first binary format over a plurality of data units in a second binary format, each unit having W bits with k>0 most significant bits set to zero. | 06-17-2010 |
