Zero-Knowledge Proof

A zero-knowledge proof is a method of authenticating a transaction without revealing any information about the transaction, providing privacy for the transaction while maintaining its legitimacy.

Zero-knowledge proofs were developed by MIT professor Shafi Goldwasser in 1987. They were used to construct an encryption scheme that allowed two parties to communicate over an insecure channel without revealing any information about their communication. In the 1990s, cryptographers began using zero-knowledge proofs to construct digital signatures and other types of authentication protocols.

When it comes to digital transactions, Zero-Knowledge Evidence (ZKP) is a sort of cryptographic proof that gives consumers more anonymity. In essence, ZKPs allow one party to show to another that they are aware of a given value without providing any more information other than that fact. In a nutshell, these proofs enable information to be correctly validated without disclosing any details about the underlying data or the transaction participants’ identities.
