Description

The instruction multiplies elements in the finite field GF(28), operating on a byte (field element) in the first source operand and the corresponding byte in a second source operand. The field GF(28) is represented in polynomial representation with the reduction polynomial x8 + x4 + x3 + x + 1.

This instruction does not support broadcasting.

The EVEX encoded form of this instruction supports memory fault suppression. The SSE encoded forms of the instruction require16B alignment on their memory operations.

Operation

define gf2p8mul_byte(src1byte, src2byte):

tword := 0

FOR i := 0 to 7:

IF src2byte.bit[i]:

tword := tword XOR (src1byte<< i)

* carry out polynomial reduction by the characteristic polynomial p*

FOR i := 14 downto 8:

p := 0x11B << (i-8)

*0x11B = 0000_0001_0001_1011 in binary*

IF tword.bit[i]:

tword := tword XOR p

return tword.byte[0]
