Cryptography from Zero Knowledge: Advanced Security and New Constructions
PhD defence, Tuesday 28 June 2022. Akira Takahashi.
During his PhD studies, Akira Takahashi researched various cryptographic algorithms constructed from zero knowledge proofs. Zero knowledge proofs are a powerful tool in cryptology since they form the foundation of many efficient non-interactive proofs, identifications, digital signatures, etc. The new research findings contribute to the study of such schemes under advanced attacker models and novel constructions with extended functionalities.
The PhD study was completed at Department of Computer Science, Faculty of Natural Sciences, Aarhus University.
This summary was prepared by the PhD student.
