Programming in Zero Knowledge workshop

This workshop will be given:
   Day 3: Sunday, 24-July-2022, 1:00pm - 3:00pm, Workshop A (D'Angelo 309)

NOTE: You do NOT need to register to take this workshop -- please show up early to ensure a seat at Workshop A (D'Angelo 309).


Zero-knowledge proofs are primitives for proving the integrity of arbitrary computation over confidential information. They are used in applications like private digital cash and anonymous voting. In this workshop, we will understand the theory behind zero-knowledge proving systems, and try our hand at writing a few circuits. We will also brainstorm ideas for more private applications we could build.
