> Umm, here is what I'm looking it. I came across patent 8,411,854 (http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser?Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=8,411,854.PN.&OS=PN/8,411,854&RS=PN/8,411,854 <http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser?Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=8,411,854.PN.&OS=PN/8,411,854&RS=PN/8,411,854>)
Patents are not technical documents in the normal sense; it's usually very difficult to determine what's really going on from a patent.  Fortunately, the authors cite an actual technical paper, which you can find at http://cs.nyu.edu/~zaremba/docs/zkp.pdf <http://cs.nyu.edu/~zaremba/docs/zkp.pdf>

I haven't looked at it, but if you want to understand what they are doing, I'd suggest starting there.
