Constructor Detail

ECFieldF2m

public ECFieldF2m(int m)
Creates an elliptic curve characteristic 2 finite field which has 2^m elements with normal basis.

Parameters:
m - with 2^m being the number of elements.
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException - if m is not positive.

ECFieldF2m

public ECFieldF2m(int m,
                  BigInteger rp)
Creates an elliptic curve characteristic 2 finite field which has 2^m elements with polynomial basis. The reduction polynomial for this field is based on rp whose i-th bit correspondes to the i-th coefficient of the reduction polynomial.

Note: A valid reduction polynomial is either a trinomial (X^m + X^k + 1 with m > k >= 1) or a pentanomial (X^m + X^k3 + X^k2 + X^k1 + 1 with m > k3 > k2 > k1 >= 1).

Parameters:
m - with 2^m being the number of elements.
rp - the BigInteger whose i-th bit corresponds to the i-th coefficient of the reduction polynomial.
Throws:
NullPointerException - if rp is null.
IllegalArgumentException - if m is not positive, or rp does not represent a valid reduction polynomial.

ECFieldF2m

public ECFieldF2m(int m,
                  int[] ks)
Creates an elliptic curve characteristic 2 finite field which has 2^m elements with polynomial basis. The reduction polynomial for this field is based on ks whose content contains the order of the middle term(s) of the reduction polynomial. Note: A valid reduction polynomial is either a trinomial (X^m + X^k + 1 with m > k >= 1) or a pentanomial (X^m + X^k3 + X^k2 + X^k1 + 1 with m > k3 > k2 > k1 >= 1), so ks should have length 1 or 3.

Parameters:
m - with 2^m being the number of elements.
ks - the order of the middle term(s) of the reduction polynomial. Contents of this array are copied to protect against subsequent modification.
Throws:
NullPointerException - if ks is null.
IllegalArgumentException - ifm is not positive, or the length of ks is neither 1 nor 3, or values in ks are not between m-1 and 1 (inclusive) and in descending order.

getMidTermsOfReductionPolynomial

public int[] getMidTermsOfReductionPolynomial()
Returns an integer array which contains the order of the middle term(s) of the reduction polynomial for polynomial basis or null for normal basis.

Returns:
an integer array which contains the order of the middle term(s) of the reduction polynomial for polynomial basis or null for normal basis. A new array is returned each time this method is called.
