Comparing the difficulty of factorization and discrete logarithm: a 240-digit experiment
We report on two new records: the factorization of RSA-240, a 795-bit number, and a discrete logarithm computation over a 795-bit prime field. Previous records were the factorization of RSA-768 in 2009 and a 768-bit discrete logarithm computation in 2016. Our two computations at the 795-bit level were done using the same hardware and software, and show that computing a discrete logarithm is not much harder than a factorization of the same size. Moreover, thanks to algorithmic variants and well-chosen parameters, our computations were significantly less expensive than anticipated based on previous records. The last page of this paper also reports on the factorization of RSA-250.

Oracle-Assisted Static Diffie-Hellman Is Easier Than Discrete Logarithms
This paper extends Joux-Naccache-Thom\'e's $e$-th root algorithm to the static Diffie-Hellman problem ({\sc sdhp}). The new algorithm can be adapted to diverse finite fields by customizing it with an {\sc nfs}-like core or an {\sc ffs}-like core. In both cases, after a number of {\sc sdhp} oracle queries, the attacker builds-up the ability to solve new {\sc sdhp} instances {\sl unknown before the query phase}. While sub-exponential, the algorithm is still significantly faster than all currently known {\sc dlp} and {\sc sdhp} resolution methods. We explore the applicability of the technique to various cryptosystems. The attacks were implemented in ${\mathbb F}_{2^{1025}}$ and also in ${\mathbb F}_{p}$, for a $516$-bit $p$.

When e-th Roots Become Easier Than Factoring
Antoine Joux David Naccache Emmanuel Thomé
We show that computing $e$-th roots modulo $n$ is easier than factoring $n$ with currently known methods, given subexponential access to an oracle outputting the roots of numbers of the form $x_i + c$. Here $c$ is fixed and $x_i$ denotes small integers of the attacker's choosing. Several variants of the attack are presented, with varying assumptions on the oracle, and goals ranging from selective to universal forgeries. The computational complexity of the attack is $L_n(\frac{1}{3}, \sqrt[3]{\frac{32}{9}})$ in most significant situations, which matches the {\sl special} number field sieve's ({\sc snfs}) complexity. This sheds additional light on {\sc rsa}'s malleability in general and on {\sc rsa}'s resistance to affine forgeries in particular -- a problem known to be polynomial for $x_i > \sqrt[3]{n}$, but for which no algorithm faster than factoring was known before this work.

A double large prime variation for small genus hyperelliptic index calculus
P. Gaudry Emmanuel Thomé N. Thériault C. Diem
In this article, we examine how the index calculus approach for computing discrete logarithms in small genus hyperelliptic curves can be improved by introducing a double large prime variation. Two algorithms are presented. The first algorithm is a rather natural adaptation of the double large prime variation to the intended context. On heuristic and experimental grounds, it seems to perform quite well but lacks a complete and precise analysis. Our second algorithm is a considerably simplified variant, which can be analyzed easily. The resulting complexity improves on the fastest known algorithms. Computer experiments show that for hyperelliptic curves of genus three, our first algorithm surpasses Pollard's Rho method even for rather small field sizes.
