Episode 154: ZK for authentication with Nolan and Locke from NuID
In this week’s episode, Anna spoke with Nolan Smith (https://www.linkedin.com/in/notalwaysgray) and Locke Brown (https://twitter.com/lockebrown), co-founders at NuID (https://nuid.io) - a zero knowledge authentication solution. They explore the use-case of zk-powered password management and how this relates to Identity. Here are a few of the articles mentioned in the episode: -Universally Composable Direct Anonymous Attestation (https://eprint.iacr.org/2015/1246.pdf) by Jan Camenisch , Manu Drijvers , and Anja Lehmann -Practical UC-Secure Delegatable Credentials with Attributes and Their Application to Blockchain (https://acmccs.github.io/papers/p683-camenischA.pdf) by Jan Camenisch , Manu Drijvers , and Anja Lehmann -Privacy-Preserving User-Auditable Pseudonym Systems by Jan Camenisch & Anja Lehmann IBM Research (https://researcher.watson.ibm.com/researcher/files/zurich-ANJ/main_nymlog.pdf) – Zurich Find out more at the NuID developer portal https://portal.nuid.io Thanks to this week’s sponsor Aleo (https://aleo.org/) Aleo is the first platform for fully private applications. It uses blockchain and zero-knowledge cryptography to deliver a web experience that is both personal and private. With Aleo, developers can write private applications, without a background in blockchains or expertise in cryptography. Aleo has released Developer Preview I (https://developer.aleo.org/aleo/getting_started/overview/), an early peek at what the future of the web will look like. The release introduces a new programming language called Leo, a new community-driven package manager for Leo, and a new development environment or IDE called Aleo Studio (https://aleo.studio/). We recently had Howard Wu, a co-founder of Aleo, on the show for an interview - you can find that episode here (https://www.zeroknowledge.fm/144).
