Zero Knowledge Proofs are a cutting edge cryptographic tool that is starting to see adoption. This breakthrough technology forms the basis of several cryptographic applications, improving the trade-offs between data privacy and integrity. Zero Knowledge Proofs allow a prover to convince a verifier that some computational statement is correct without revealing any information except the veracity of the statement.
ZKProof.org is an open initiative of industry and academia to standardize the use of zero knowledge proofs. We are planning several workshops to standardize the security, implementation, applications and all other related aspects of this technology. The first workshop will take place in Boston in mid May and will bring together for the first time academic and industry experts in the field.
