We introduce the notion of Interleaved Zero-Knowledge (iZK),

a new security measure for cryptographic protocols which strengthens

the classical notion of zero-knowledge, in a way suitable for multiple

concurrent executions in an asynchronous environment like the internet.

We prove that iZK protocols are robust: they are ``parallelizable'',

and ...

We introduce the notion of Resettable Zero-Knowledge (rZK),

a new security measure for cryptographic protocols

which strengthens the classical notion of zero-knowledge.

In essence, an rZK protocol is one that remains zero knowledge

even if an adeversary can interact with the prover many times, each

time ...

Knowledge extraction is a fundamental notion, modeling knowledge possession in a computational complexity sense. The notion provides a tool for cryptographic protocol design and analysis, enabling one to argue about the internal state of protocol players. We define and

investigate the relative power of the notion of ``concurrent knowledge-extraction'' ...
