This week, Anna (https://twitter.com/annarrose) and Tarun (https://twitter.com/tarunchitra) chat with Florian Tramèr (https://twitter.com/florian_tramer), Assistant Professor at ETH Zurich (https://ethz.ch/en.html). They discuss his earlier work on side channel attacks on privacy blockchains, as well as his academic focus on Machine Learning (ML) and adversarial research. They define some key ML terms, tease out some of the nuances of ML training and models, chat zkML and other privacy environments where ML can be trained, and look at why the security around ML will be important as these models become increasingly used in production.

In this episode, Anna (https://twitter.com/annarrose) explores the topic of the recent OFAC sanctions against Tornado Cash with 2 interviews: One is with TuongVy Le (https://twitter.com/TuongvyLe12), Head of Regulatory and Policy at Bain Capital Crypto (https://twitter.com/baincapcrypto), who previously worked at the SEC and the other is with Michael Mosier (https://twitter.com/M_Mosier_), General Council at Espresso Systems (https://twitter.com/EspressoSys), who used to work at the Treasury, within FinCen and at OFAC itself. For some context: On August 8th 2022, OFAC, a US government department issued sanctions against Tornado Cash, a privacy protocol that uses zero knowledge proofs to provide on-chain privacy. It was the first time that OFAC had sanctioned a set of smart contracts and a decentralized entity for which there's no clear ownership. This is an event which has had a ripple effect throughout the zk ecosystem and will be the topic explored in a series with different members of the community. In these two initial interviews, Anna explores what actually happened legally, what a sanction is, what kind of a tool is this, why it may have been issued and what problem arose from the way it was issued and how this might impact future understanding of zero knowledge tech through a legal lens. _NOTE: Since our recording OFAC has released an FAQ to clarify some of the legal questions raised in our interviews: https://home.treasury.gov/taxonomy/term/1546 _ Here are some additional links for this episode: * Episode 111: Mixers with Tornado.cash (https://zeroknowledge.fm/111-2/) * Episode 166: Coin Center’s Peter Van Valkenburgh on regulation (https://zeroknowledge.fm/166-2/) * Episode 191: ZKPs & the Dichotomy of Privacy vs Transparency with Josh & Jill (https://zeroknowledge.fm/191-2/) * Chainanalysis: Crypto Mixer Usage Reaches All-time Highs in 2022, With Nation State Actors and Cybercriminals Contributing Significant Volume (https://blog.chainalysis.com/reports/crypto-mixer-criminal-volume-2022/) * Circle and Coinbase Restrict Movement of USDC Funds From Tornado Cash Addresses Following Sanctions (https://crypto.news/circle-and-coinbase-restrict-movement-of-usdc-funds-from-tornado-cash-addresses-following-sanctions/) * Rep.

In this week's episode, Anna (https://twitter.com/AnnaRRose) and Tarun (https://twitter.com/tarunchitra) revisit the topic of MEV with Chris Hager (https://twitter.com/metachris) from Flashbots (https://docs.flashbots.net/) & Alex Stokes (https://twitter.com/ralexstokes) from the Ethereum Foundation. In this episode, they tease out more of the nuances around MEV and how the field around it has evolved in the last year or so. The team explores what the MEV space could look like after the Merge, the PBS (Proposer Builder Separation) concept, what each role in the MEV landscape will do and the MEV-Boost architecture. They also chat about using cryptographic solutions to prevent some kinds of MEV and some recent work that Tarun released on the topic of MEV, as well as future ideas around MEV aim to democratize or even share the searchers rewards.
