Thanks for the additional information! I had seen the use of 2 in several papers.

I'm not a very mathematically oriented person (nor cryptography), just doing some CS homework. Sorry! Thank you very much for all the help.

P.S. - do you have any sources for this? I'd like to reference something other than stackoverflow :)

One more question! When you say "defining elements" of the polynomial, do you mean the keys themselves? (I apologize, i'm not very strong in the math department)

Thank you so much, on all counts, bob! I knew something wasn't adding up with what i had. I really appreciate this! I will read through the original paper and go from there.
