Abstract: We present a new binary tree based parallel algorithm for extending the domain of a UOWHF. The key length expansion is m(t+O(log*(t))) bits. In particular, the key length expansion is 2m bits for t=2; m(t+1) bits for 3\leq t\leq 6 and m(t+2) bits for 7\leq t\leq 134, where m is the length of the message digest and t\geq 2 is the height of the binary tree. The previously best known binary tree algorithm required a key length expansion of m(t+[log_2 (t-1)]) bits. We also give a sufficient condition for valid domain extension in sequental domain extension.
