This paper reports on the computation of a discrete logarithm in the finite field F_2^30750, breaking by a large margin the previous record, which was set in January 2014 by a computation in F_2^9234. ... discrete logarithm record for prime fields, set in a field of bit-length 795, and demonstrates just how much easier the problem is for this level of computational effort. ...

They used the BN curve defined over a 256-bit field suggested in [NNS10] (seed x = 1868033 3 ). ... 183 bits, and of order 4r where r is of 181 bits such that 2 31 | r − 1. ... Meanwhile, the research in discrete logarithm computation in finite fields related to pairings also saw a tremendous decade, with a prequel in 2012 with a discrete logarithm record-breaking computation ...dblp:journals/iacr/AranhaHG22 fatcat:xzwgcewdibehhbt2rprospha2a
The name bit stems from the contraction of binary digit, adopted for the ﬁrst time in the Shannon’s milestone paper  as the basic unit of information in computing and communication theory. ... The only inﬂuence of the base of the logarithm is on the units of I (x i ): e.g. , if the logarithm is to the base 2, then I (x i ) is expressed in bits, where log2 12 = 1bit. ...doi:10.5075/epfl-thesis-8473 fatcat:lw4fclsi4rfhhiwuawytxwx6sy

This new approach to linear feedback shift register counting reduces the data path from the counter to the pixel register of the ADC from as many as 16-bits to a single bit. ...
