Interactive Zero-Knowledge Proofs are protocols that allow a prover to demonstrate knowledge of a secret without revealing the secret itself. These proofs involve interactive communication between the prover and verifier, with the prover providing evidence to convince the verifier of the truth of a statement. Through multiple rounds of interaction, the verifier gains increasing confidence without learning the underlying secret. Interactive zero-knowledge proofs play a pivotal role in Web3 applications, contributing to secure authentication, identity verification, and transaction privacy, while maintaining data confidentiality and integrity.
