Security of Allmost ALL Discrete Log Bits

Let G be a finite cyclic group with generator \alpha and with
an encoding so that multiplication is computable in polynomial time. We
study the security of bits of the discrete log x when given \exp_{\alpha}(x),
assuming that the exponentiation function \exp_{\alpha}(x) = \alpha^x is one-way.

Constant-Depth Circuits for Arithmetic in Finite Fields of Characteristic Two

We study the complexity of arithmetic in finite fields of characteristic two, $\F_{2^n}$.
We concentrate on the following two problems:

Iterated Multiplication: Given $\alpha_1, \alpha_2,..., \alpha_t \in \F_{2^n}$, compute $\alpha_1 \cdot \alpha_2 \cdots \alpha_t \in \F_{2^n}$.

Exponentiation: Given $\alpha \in \F_{2^n}$ and a $t$-bit integer $k$, compute $\alpha^k \in \F_{2^n}$.
