Discrete Logarithm Factory


The Number Field Sieve and its variants are the best algorithms to solve the discrete logarithm problem in finite fields. The Factory variant accelerates the computation when several prime fields are targeted. This article adapts the Factory variant to non-prime finite fields of medium and large characteristic. We combine this idea with two other variants of NFS, namely the tower and special variant. This combination leads to improvements in the asymptotic complexity. Besides, we lay out estimates of the practicality of this method for 1024-bit targets and extension degree 6.
