Research2Practice – Profs. Ken Bamberger & Rebecca Wexler: Zero Knowledge Proofs – A Possible Solution to Legal Problems?

May 20, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Zero Knowledge Proofs – A Possible Solution

to Legal Problems?

Prof. Ken Bamberger

Prof. Rebecca Wexler

May 20, 2021

Noon – 1:00 P.M. (PT)

Zoom (login info provided upon registration)

Profs. Ken Bamberger and Rebecca Wexler will explain the potential legal value of zero-knowledge proofs—a class of cryptographic protocols that allow one party to verify a fact or characteristic of secret information without revealing the actual secret. In particular, this talk will focus on “verification dilemmas,” situations that require the verification of some fact but risk exposing sensitive information. Verification dilemmas appear across the legal landscape. Yet, existing legal responses to them are imperfect, too often depending on expensive litigation. Bamberger and Wexler believe that zero-knowledge proofs can help solve these verification dilemmas.

One hour of CLE credit will be offered.
