• Why do we run Lumino?

    What is Lumino? “Lumino” is the term of illumination. In PlatON and Alaya networks, Lumino is a Multi-Party Computation Ceremony, for creating the necessary security parameters of the zero-knowledge proof protocols. As one of the important privacy-preserving computation technologies, zero-knowledge proof (ZKP) allows a prover to convince a verifier that the he knows a secret information without directly disclosing the information itself. As a cryptographic primitive with both privacy protection and authentication capabilities, zero-knowledge proof is widely used in providing payment privacy, authentication privacy, and scalability. Most of ZKP protocols…

  • Q&A | All about Lumino, the secure multi-party computation ceremony

    To help community partners and technology enthusiasts better understand the Lumino ceremony, We have prepared a Q&A session on the 60-day secure multi-party computing ceremony. A) ABOUT LUMINO Q1. What is Lumino? PlatON/Alaya will build a decentralized privacy-preserving infrastructure based on Zero-Knowledge Proof (ZKP). However, in most of the existing high-efficiency ZKP algorithms, system parameters need to be created in a centralized manner, and the centralized third party that creates the parameters can forge the certificate, which will destroy the security of the underlying level of PlatON/Alaya. Lumino is designed…

  • PlatON Presents a Secure Multi-Party Computation Ceremony—— Lumino

    PlatON, a global leader in the field of privacy-preserving computation, is happy to announce the release of Lumino, a two-month computation ceremony, promoting collaborative efforts in developing the privacy-preserving computation technology. Lumino is a trustless multi-party ceremony of generating “common reference strings” (CRS) for zero-knowledge proof systems, and a prior and necessary step to deploy privacy-preserving applications in decentralized ecosystems. The event now focuses on PLONK, which is an efficient zk-SNARKs algorithm and commonly used in the blockchain community, and only needs to perform once for many applications for its…
