Abstract
Let \(q~=~2^n\), and let \(\mathcal{E} / \mathbb{F}_{q^{\ell}}\) be a generalized GalbraithLinScott (GLS) binary curve, with $\ell \ge 2$ and \((\ell, n) = 1\). We show that the GLS endomorphism on \(\mathcal{E} / \mathbb{F}_{q^{\ell}}\) induces an efficient endomorphism on the Jacobian \(\mathrm{Jac}_\mathcal{H}(\mathbb{F}_q)\) of the genus\(g\) hyperelliptic curve \(\mathcal{H}\) corresponding to the image of the GHS Weildescent attack applied to \(\mathcal{E} / \mathbb{F}_{q^\ell}\), and that this endomorphism yields a factor$n$ speedup when using standard indexcalculus procedures for solving the Discrete Logarithm Problem (DLP) on \(\mathrm{Jac}_\mathcal{H}(\mathbb{F}_q)\). Our analysis is backed up by the explicit computation of a discrete logarithm defined on a primeorder subgroup of a GLS elliptic curve over the field $\mathbb{F}_{2^{5\cdot 31}}$. A Magma implementation of our algorithm finds the aforementioned discrete logarithm in about $1,035$ CPUdays.
