An implementation of the Groth-Sahai NIZK protocol

⚠ Warning ⚠

This is an experimental library and is only at its first version. The API could still be updated in the near future. I cannot guarantee the security of this library, and one should not use this in production.

Setup

  • Install PBC on your machine (Hopefully we can solve this in time)

https://crypto.stanford.edu/pbc/

  • Setup a shared library

http://gas.dia.unisa.it/projects/jpbc/docs/pbcwrapper.html

Run tests

  • mvn clean test

Implementation details

Generation:

#!java

final Generator generator = NIZKFactory.createGenerator(Role.PROVER);

final PairingParameters pairingParameters = generator.generatePairingParams();
final CommonReferenceString crs = generator.generateCRS(pairingParameters);
final Prover prover = NIZKFactory.createProver(crs);
final Verifier verifier = NIZKFactory.createVerifier(crs);
final StatementAndWitness statementWitnessPair = generator.generateStatementAndWitness(crs.getPairing());

Proof:

#!java

final Proof proof = prover.proof(statementWitnessPair.getStatement(), statementWitnessPair.getWitness());

Verifying:

#!java

verifier.verify(statementWitnessPair.getStatement(), proof)
