Abstract

In this presentation we will look at the basic ideas behind zero-knowledge proofs and we will examine a modern day application. A zero-knowledge proof is proving to someone that you know a secret without telling them the secret. Internet passwords are one instance of a zero-knowledge proof. Without ever sending a password, one may be asked a series of questions to prove ones identity.
