Abstract: 

A zero-knowledge proof is an identification scheme where
one party can prove to another party that they have certain information
(such as a password) in such a way that the second party cannot or is
unlikely to retrieve the information itself. This talk will briefly
discuss zero-knowledge proofs in a way that will allow us to explore
the Feige-Fiat-Shamir identification scheme and recognize its effectiveness.
