Topic: ZKP (Cred) Primer with Daniel Hardman

Kim Hamilton Duffy:
... next is the ZKP Primer by Daniel Hardman
Kim Hamilton Duffy: Over to Daniel Hardman
Joe Andrieu: Earlier Daniel you established the idea of approximately zero...
... isn't the signature approximately 0
Daniel Hardman: No it is not 0
Dave Longley: The term approximately plays a role when the signature value and a super unique name carries the same weight...
Daniel Hardman: Slide 24 addresses that a little bit. We can talk about it more when we get there.
Dave Longley: My other question is ZKP Proof vs. ZKP Arguments...
... ZK Snarks are different than ZK Proofs
... ZK Proofs gives you computational zero knowledge
... if someone has enough computational power then it can be broken
... are these not computational bound
Daniel Hardman: The distinction that you are making is about the formal definition...
... when someone wags their finger they are usually living in formal definition land
... the short answer is ZK Snarks and other things like it is what ZKP creds include
... I am talking about ZKPs in the informal sense as long as they meet the canonical definition
... back to slide 14.
Dave Longley: Seems "it's not a ZKP" is a matter of perspective and that's important to note
Kim Hamilton Duffy: Thank you this is a great overview...
... we maybe will be able to have you on for a follow up discussion.
Kim Hamilton Duffy: Thank you everyone!
