This talk will introduce Zero-Knowledge Proofs (ZKPs) and explain why they are a key element in a growing number of privacy-preserving, digital-identity platforms. Clare will provide basic illustrations of ZKPs and leave the necessary mathematics foundations to the readers.
After this talk you will understand that there is a variety of ZKPs, it’s still early days, and why ZKP is such a perfect tool for digital identity platforms. This talk includes significant updates from the newly-organized ZKProof Standardization organization plus a signal of maturity: one of the first known ZKP vulnerabilities.
Clare will explain why ZKPs are so powerful, and why they are building blocks for a range of applications including privacy-preserving cryptocurrency such as Zcash, Ethereum, Artificial Intelligence, and older versions of Trusted Platform Modules (TPMs). The presentation includes many backup slides for future learning and researching, including four slides of references.
