Zero-Knowledge Proof (ZKP)

A zero-knowledge proof is a cryptographic technique that enables one person (the prover) to convince another party (the verifier) that they are aware of a secret or truth without disclosing the real secret or any other information.

It protects confidentiality while demonstrating the truth of a statement. Applications for ZKPs include secure transactions, privacy-preserving authentication, and cryptographic protocols.
