Title: Determining message residue using a set of polynomials

Abstract: A method is described for use in determining a residue of a message. The method includes loading at least a portion of each of a set of polynomials derived from a first polynomial, g(x), and determining the residue using a set of stages. Individual ones of the stages apply a respective one of the derived set of polynomials to data output by a preceding one of the set of stages.
