We prove a bound on sums of products of multiplicative characters of shifted Fermat quotients modulo p. From this bound we derive results on the pseudorandomness of sequences of modular discrete logarithms of Fermat quotients modulo p: bounds on the well-distribution measure, the correlation measure of order , and the linear complexity.
