Fifi Documentation

Fifi is a library for finite field arithmetics. It provides an optimized implementation for operations in various finite fields, such as GF(2), GF(2^4), GF(2^8) and GF(2^16). To provide high performance, it utilizes a wide range of hardware optimizations for the different fields, especially the SIMD instruction sets of modern CPUs.

The Fifi repository: https://github.com/steinwurf/fifi

The examples folder contains some programs that demonstrate the usage of the available API.
