Modern Zero Knowledge Cryptography
Friday, February 03, 2023 at 2:00pm to 3:30pm
The Modern Zero Knowledge Cryptography IAP program surveys recent advancements in ZK crypto over the last ten years, with a strong emphasis on their practical and user-facing applications. Topics covered range from the mathematical foundations of modern ZK protocols (elliptic curve cryptography, pairing-based cryptography, polynomial commitment schemes, zkSNARKs, etc.) to practical constructions of digital systems enabled by ZK primitives (digital identity, zero-knowledge machine learning, decentralized games, and more). Students will build their own ZK crypto project, with support from course staff and mentors
