Searching for all occurrences of a given set of patterns in a text is a fundamental problem in computer science with applications in many fields, like computational biology and intrusion detection systems. In the last two decades a general trend has appeared trying to exploit the power of the word RAM model to speed-up the performances of classical string matching algorithms. This study introduces a filter based exact multiple string matching algorithm, which benefits from Intel's SSE
