Detailed Description

An AES lookup table.

This represents the products (in the Galois field GF(2^8)) of a constant eight-byte vector multiplier with all possible 256 scalar multiplicands.

The entries are indexed by the AES [Inv]SubBytes S-box output values (denoted S(N)). This allows for the result of multiplying any single column of the [Inv]MixColumns matrix by S(N) to be obtained simply by extracting the relevant four-byte subset from the Nth table entry. For example:

Input byte (N): 0x3a SubBytes output S(N): 0x80 MixColumns column[1]: { 3, 2, 1, 1 } Vector multiplier: { 1, 1, 1, 3, 2, 1, 1, 3 } Table entry[0x3a]: { 0x80, 0x80, 0x80, 0x9b, 0x1b, 0x80, 0x80, 0x9b } Product: { 0x9b, 0x1b, 0x80, 0x80 }

Since the first byte of the eight-byte vector multiplier is always chosen to be 1, the value of S(N) may be lookup up by extracting the first byte of the Nth table entry.
