**On Generalization of Cheon's Algorithm**

*Takakazu Satoh*

**Abstract: **We consider a generalization of Cheon's algorithm on the strong Diffie-Hellman problem.
More specifically, we consider the circumstance that p^k-1 has a small divisor for k>=3, where p is the order of group on which we consider the strong Diffie-Hellman problem.
It seems that our algorithm is only effective for k=1, 2, that is, the original Cheon's algorithm.
