# BERLEKAMP MASSEY ALGORITHM PDF

Berlekamp-Massey algorithm is an algorithm that will find the shortest linear feedback shift register (LFSR) for a given binary output sequence. Here we present. ‘Berlekamp-Massey theorem’ i.e. a recursive construction of the polynomials arising in the Berlekamp-Massey algorithm, relative to any. Often, L is something we want to know in addition to the coefficients. This is where the Berlekamp–Massey algorithm comes in, as it also determines L.

We should note here that we totally ignore what it produces after the 8 th symbol — it is not berlekapm — we only care about the first 8 symbols. A very important remark is that our correction cannot cause previous symbols to be incorrect, because then we would have to start all over again.

### Practical Cryptography

Let us focus on 1. The false case of the if-statement is pretty obvious — if the LFSR works, do not fix it. First of all, note the following: This linear relation is given by the connection polynomial. Consider the LFSR given byfrom the example above.

## Berlekamp-Massey Algorithm Explained

This means we have a series for discrepancies, namely. Clearly, the last one needs to eliminated. How do we do this? How do we construct such a function that also is of lowest possible degree?

Assume that we have made this correction before.

This means, that at some point, we had an indexwhere the discrepancy function series was. Here, we have found a function that agree with the properties of.

Maasey equation should we use? First note that we need to delay the function steps if we use the discrepancy at index.

Also note that delay is equal to complexity, which we, in turn, want to reduce. Therefore, we want to pick as large as possible, as this, by induction assumption will be minimal. For the BM algorithm to work on arbitrary fieldinstead of adding the previous discrepancy symbolwe have to match it with the current discrepancy. Thus, the correction goes.
