Discrete Logarithm Problem |

Suppose that we have an equation y = g where all four variables are integers, and g and p are very large prime numbers, say, greater than 100 digits. Given g, p, and x, it takes a modern-day computer only a fraction of a second to calculate y.
The Discrete Logarithm Problem (DLP), is, given g, p, and y, can we find x, even if we have a million computers and a million years at our disposal?
