Hi,

I am just learning cryptography and the DLP problem. How can I create a finite multiplicative Group over Zp?

Sage has many Group related classes but apparently I am not math-savvy enough to chose one ;-)

Isn't working with `GF(p).multiplicative_generator()` enough for implementing Diffie-Hellman and the likes?

Hello,


I fear, creating finite multiplicative groups over Zp is not possible yet.

You could create an isomorphic one , e.g. for p = 7:

AbelianGroup([7])

but that is probably not what you want...
