Cryptosat & DoraHacks Make History: Successfully Complete Cryptographic Trusted Setup in Space

• Cryptosat and DoraHacks completed the first-ever cryptographic trusted setup for zero-knowledge in space, on the International Space Station (ISS).
• This experiment involved taking a set of pre-uploaded open source programs to the ISS and outputting a file containing the Common Reference String.
• This Common Reference String is used in DoraHacks‘ ZK-proof driven voting program, which helps protect the privacy of users‘ data.

Cryptosat, a California-based crypto-satellite developer, and DoraHacks, a global hackathon organizer, recently completed a historic experiment in space. The two platforms collaborated in initiating a proof-of-concept of cryptographic primitives on the International Space Station (ISS).

The experiment involved taking a set of pre-uploaded open source programs to the ISS, and then outputting a file that contains the Common Reference String. This Common Reference String is used in DoraHacks‘ ZK-proof driven voting program, which helps to protect the privacy of users‘ data.

The revolutionary experiment required an immense amount of preparation and coordination between the two platforms. Cryptosat had to develop a custom protocol that could be executed on the ISS, while DoraHacks had to ensure that all cryptographic technologies used in the experiment were up to the highest standards of security.

Cryptosat CEO, John Wartman, expressed his excitement over the successful completion of the experiment: “We are thrilled to have completed this historic experiment and to be the first to prove the feasibility of cryptographic primitives in space. This was a complex task that required extensive preparation, coordination and execution. We are extremely proud of our team’s hard work in making this project a success.”

The two platforms have opened up the possibility of more advanced cryptographic technologies being developed and used in space. These technologies could be used to secure communications, data storage, and other operations in space.

In the future, Cryptosat and DoraHacks plan to continue pushing the boundaries of cryptography and explore the possibilities of using cryptography in space. With more advanced cryptographic technologies being developed, it is only a matter of time before we see the full potential of cryptography being realized in space.
