JsSandbox selects the longest word in the statements and decides whether the code is obfuscated or not based on the word size. The code in the SCRIPT tag is related to cOleScript::ParseScriptText in jscript.dll.
time to compute a constant number of operations on integers of mb bits using a word size of w bits.
These tend to have larger CPU word sizes and more memory than single-user systems, and they are more expensive.
As mentioned in the previous section, the structure of SHA-512 is similar to that of SHA-256 excluding parameters such as the word size. Thus, we only propose a key recovery attack on HMAC-SHA-256 in this subsection.
Both parallel and loop LSB architectures are investigated at various word sizes or architectural widths.
Consider operating over R = GF(2)[x]/([x.sup.w] + 1), the ring consisting of polynomials in x whose coefficients are binary (drawn from the Galois field of characteristic 2), reduced modulo the polynomial [x.sup.w] + .1.(8) (See the Appendix.) The integer w is chosen equal to the computer's word size, that is, w is the number of bits in each word.
This discussion assumes, of course, that the pattern's size is no more than the word size, which is often the case.
In binary representation, a word size of K bits can store numbers in the range [-2.sup.K] to [2.sup.K] - 1 on most computers.
Additional characteristics like word size were also collected but subsequently dropped when they proved to provide no significant additional information.
Therefore, with the increases in word sizes, the design will become inefficient and more complicated.
Code can be generated for signals and parameters with word sizes from one to 128 bits.
