Non-interactive zero-knowledge proofs make it possible to prove the truth of a statement without revealing any other information. They have been used widely in the theory of cryptography, but due to efficiency problems have not yet found many practical applications. In this talk, we will cover recent pairing-based constructions of non-interactive zero-knowledge proofs that yield the necessary efficiency for practical applications as well as the possibility to have perfect and everlasting privacy.
