InfoSec Seminar: How to do Zero Knowledge from Discrete Logs in under 7kB

Speaker: Jonathan Bootle

Date/Time: 07-Jul-2016, 16:00 UTC

Venue: Roberts 106



Recent work by Bootle et al ( dramatically improved the size of zero-knowledge arguments based on discrete logarithms, from a square root to a logarithmic size. In just 5 minutes, I will explain zero-knowledge arguments and the main idea behind the performance boost. For real-world applications, such as gas-simulations or verifying hashes, this leads to proofs of under 7kB.
