In this week’s episode, we welcome Ariel Gabizon, previously a Electric Coin Company (Zcash) engineer and now a cryptographer working on zero knowledge constructions for Filecoin (https://filecoin.io/). Ariel has worked closely with some of the most exciting projects and researchers pushing the boundaries on zero knowledge research. He is also the person who discovered the Zcash bug (along with Sean Bowe and Zooko). In this episode, we explore his journey into the space, what inspires him, and what exciting new paradigms he is exploring today! Here are some of the articles and topics he mentions: * Algebraic Methods for Interactive Proof Systems (https://users.cs.fiu.edu/~giri/teach/5420/f01/LundIPS.pdf)* ECC (Zcash) Vulnerability Blog post (https://electriccoin.co/blog/zcash-counterfeiting-vulnerability-successfully-remediated/) * https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BernhardRiemann* https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Riemannzetafunction* https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Algebraicfunctionfield* https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HelmutHasse* https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hasseprinciple* https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AndréWeilThank you to our sponsor this week StarkWare (https://starkware.co) StarkWare will be presenting the StarkWare Sessions (https://starkware.co/starkware-sessions/) - on Sept 16th in Tel Aviv. The event will bring together some of the brightest minds in zero knowledge research from both the academic and application spheres. Topics that will be discussed are self-custodial trading, STARKs for Layer 1, STARK-friendly hash functions and other cool things you can do with STARK proofs.Use the code Zkpodcast for 20% off the tickets - > https://starkware.co/starkware-sessions/If you like what we do: Follow us on Twitter - @zeroknowledgefm (https://twitter.com/zeroknowledgefm)Join us on Telegram - https://t.me/joinchat/B_81tQ57-ThZg8yOSx5gjASupport our Gitcoin Grant - https://gitcoin.co/grants/38/zero-knowledge-podcastSupport us on Patreon - https://www.patreon.com/zeroknowledge Or directly here: ETH: 0xC0FFEE1B5083230a5154F55f253B6b6ae8F29B1aBTC: 1cafekGa3podM4fBxPSQc6RCEXQNTK8ZzZEC: t1R2bujRF3Hzte9ALHpMJvY8t5kb9ut9SpQ

In this episode, Anna chats with Robert Habermeier (https://twitter.com/rphmeier), one of the co-founders of Polkadot and an engineer at Parity Technology, about his early experience with Rust and cryptography, as well as the work he did at Parity on Warp Sync and Lightclients. We then discuss how this helped inspire some of the concepts and design of the Polkadot protocol. We also chat about some of the exciting concepts that he is discovering along the way - such as new architectures to promote interchain security, Trust Wormholes and more! For more about what we discussed, check out these links: Polkadot: https://polkadot.network/about/Warp sync: https://wiki.parity.io/Warp-SyncLightclient https://www.parity.io/what-is-a-light-client/Special thanks to this week's sponsor: Trail of Bits (https://www.trailofbits.com/)Trail of Bits is offering a service for young technology companies who could use expert security support, but aren't quite at a stage to hire their own team.

In this week's episode we chat with two of the people behind the Graphene project (https://grapheneproject.io/), Chia-Che Tsai of Texas A&M University and Golem developer Lukasz Glen, about TEEs, Intel® Software Guard Extensions (Intel® SGX), and the way the Graphene project aims to make it easier for devs to interact with these hardware enclaves.Graphene (https://grapheneproject.io/) started as a research project at Stony Brook University, led by Chia-Che Tsai and Don Porter, about emerging hardware platforms. In 2015, Intel Labs recognized the potential for Graphene to be an open-source compatibility layer for Intel® SGX, and has contributed to Graphene development since. With Golem and Invisible Things Lab (ITL), the Graphene project has also been now used within a decentralised blockchain context. The security around TEEs is a hotly debated topic (at least in our community) and we delve into the questions around these with our guests. That said, we do see this as the first of a series of episodes where we explore the challenges and advantages of using TEEs. https://grapheneproject.io/Thank you to this week's sponsor Apograf!
