Title: Scalable, Transparent and Post-quantum Secure Computational Integrity, with applications to Crypto-currencies
Prof. Eli Ben-Sasson, Department of Computer Science, Technion - Israel Institute of Technology

Abstract: Scalable Zero Knowledge (ZK) are currently used to enhance privacy and fungibility in the ZCash cryptocurrency, and could potentially be used to solve Bitcoin's scalability problems.

This talk describes recent progress towards, and applications of, *transparent* zero knowledge proofs, whose setup requires only a public random string.

Joint work with Iddo Bentov, Ynon Horesh and Michael Riabzev
