An irreducible polynomial *P*(*x*) of degree *n* over a finite field
is *primitive*, if its order is equal to *p*^{n}-1.

This tool allows you to search for primitive polynomials over prime fields
, where *p* is a prime. This is a service to
education and scientific research; we strongly advise against using the
results of these searches in real crypting.
