F.A.Q

  • ZKProof is an academic and industry open initiative for standardizing Zero Knowledge Proofs, with a growing and active community.

  • From Wikipedia: a technical standard is an established norm or requirement in regard to technical systems. It is usually a formal document that establishes uniform engineering or technical criteria, methods, processes, and practices. A technical standard may be developed between relevant entities, increasing product safety and quality as well as fostering trust in the technology.

  • A standard fosters trust in the technology within industry usage, removing the need to rely on a single company for the security of the system and the confidentiality of their data. There is a growing interest in this technology and we want to see the industry grow with a strong foundation.

  • We held our first workshop back in May, which proved to be a success. We published three documents relating the discussions we had during the breakout sessions, as well as the state-of-the-art in each of the topics.

  • There are several ways to get involved with ZKProof: join the ZKProof community group to receive the latest updates and stay in the loop; join the Interoperability WG to contribute to the open problems and standard proposals around library and compiler interoperability; become a sponsor of the effort by sending us an email; follow us on twitter @zkproof.
