New Applications of Zero-Knowledge Proofs

New Applications of Zero-Knowledge Proofs

Cybersecurity Seminars Online seminar
Wednesday, 17 November 2021
12 pm - 1 pm (AEDT)

Zero-knowledge proofs have recently seen significant deployment and interest in the blockchain space. However, many of the tools motivated by blockchain applications have other security applications as well. This talk will discuss 3 recent papers, all of which are proposing new applications for zero-knowledge proofs outside of blockchains: zero-knowledge middleboxes, client-auditable verifiable registries, and short-lived proofs.
