Abstract: The linear feedback shift-register is a widely used tool for generating cryptographic sequences. The properties of the Galois model discussed here offer many opportunities to improve the implementations that already exist. We explore the overall properties of the phases of the Galois model and conjecture a relation with modular Golomb rulers. This conjecture points to an efficient method for constructing non-linear filtering generators which fulfil Golic s design criteria in order to maximise protection against his inversion attack. We also produce a number of methods which can improve the rate of output of sequences by combining particular distinct phases of smaller elementary sequences.
