AESIMC

Perform the AES InvMixColumn Transformation

Opcodes

Hex Mnemonic Encoding Long Mode Legacy Mode Description
66 0F 38 DB /r AESIMC xmm1, xmm2/m128 A Valid Valid Perform the InvMixColumn transformation on a 128-bit round key from xmm2/m128 and store the result in xmm1.

Description

Perform the InvMixColumns transformation on the source operand and store the result in the destination operand. The destination operand is an XMM register. The source operand can be an XMM register or a 128-bit memory location.

Note the AESIMC instruction should be applied to the expanded AES round keys (except for the first and last round key) in order to prepare them for decryption using the "Equivalent Inverse Cipher" (defined in FIPS 197).

Pseudo Code

DEST[127:0] = InvMixColumns(SRC);

None

64-Bit Mode Exceptions

Exception Description
#UD If CR0.EM[bit 2] = 1. If CR4.OSFXSR[bit 9] = 0. If CPUID.01H:ECX.AESNI[bit 25] = 0. If the LOCK prefix is used.
#NM If CR0.TS[bit 3] = 1.
#PF(fault-code) For a page fault.
#GP(0) If the memory address is in a non-canonical form. If memory operand is not aligned on a 16-byte boundary, regardless of segment.
#SS(0) If a memory address referencing the SS segment is in a non-canonical form.

Compatibility Mode Exceptions

Same exceptions as in protected mode.

Virtual-8086 Mode Exceptions

Exception Description
#PF(fault-code) For a page fault.
Same exceptions as in real address mode.

Real-Address Mode Exceptions

Exception Description
#UD If CR0.EM[bit 2] = 1. If CR4.OSFXSR[bit 9] = 0. If CPUID.01H:ECX.AESNI[bit 25] = 0. If the LOCK prefix is used.
#NM If CR0.TS[bit 3] = 1.
#GP If a memory operand is not aligned on a 16-byte boundary, regardless of segment. If any part of the operand lies outside the effective address space from 0 to FFFFH.

Protected Mode Exceptions

Exception Description
#UD If CR0.EM[bit 2] = 1. If CR4.OSFXSR[bit 9] = 0. If CPUID.01H:ECX.AESNI[bit 25] = 0. If the LOCK prefix is used.
#NM If CR0.TS[bit 3] = 1.
#PF(fault-code) For a page fault.
#SS(0) For an illegal address in the SS segment.
#GP(0) For an illegal memory operand effective address in the CS, DS, ES, FS or GS segments. If a memory operand is not aligned on a 16-byte boundary, regardless of segment.
