Advancement: Y. Liao - Hardware Acceleration on Zero-Knowledge Verifiable Computing

Description: Trust is typically necessary for collaboration amongst people, organizations, or even electronic devices. Alternatively, verifiable computation (VC) protocols allow a prover to use a short proof to convince a computationally weak verifier that a result it produced is from a pre-agreed upon computation (i.e., maintains computational integrity). A Zero-Knowledge Proof (ZKP) is a cryptographic protocol that can implement VC without revealing any information. However, the protocol also brings huge computation overhead. So it necessitates hardware acceleration. In this work, I aim to provide efficient kernels to accelerate the proving time for various ZKPs.
