Sherlock Holmes Zero-Knowledge Protocols

George Teseleanu, IMAR
Abstract

We present two simple zero knowledge interactive proofs that can be instantiated with many of the standard decisional or computational hardness assumptions. Compared with traditional zero knowledge proofs, in our protocols the verifiers starts first, by emitting a challenge, and then the prover answers the challenge.
