Abstract

We overview various attacks on identification systems based on zero-knowledge proofs, and measures to prevent them. We also consider the efficiency of zero-knowledge proofs and overview protocols with a low communication and computation complexity. We conclude that with today's technology it is possible to make identification tokens which are secure and efficient.
