1. Structuring Computation for Privacy-Preserving Applications (slides, YouTube)

    Abstract: Public blockchains have a privacy problem for which we have many tools from Cryptography to solve. How can fully homomorphic encryption and threshold cryptography augment zero-knowledge proofs? This talk presents a framework of structuring zero-knowledge, transparent, and confidential (homomorphic) computation codenamed PESCA. We present two case studies: privacy in DeFi and NFT auctions.

    The talk expands on ideas from Navigating Privacy on Public Blockchains and is followed by PESCA: A Privacy-Enhancing Smart Contract Architecture (Draft).
