Pairing-based succinct non-interactive zero-knowledge arguments
Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute
A non-interactive zero-knowledge argument enables a prover to convince a verifier that a statement is true without revealing any other private information. We consider succinct arguments that are smaller than the size of the statement. Succinct arguments are known in the random oracle model. The goal of this talk is to present alternative pairing-based methods that can be used instead of the random oracle model relying on different and perhaps more plausible cryptographic assumptions.
