In this talk, I will report our recent work on decentralized e-auction. The paper has been published in IEEE TIFS and is publicly available at In this work, we show how to apply standard zero-knowledge proof primitives, combined with novel engineering techniques, to transform a simple Boolean-OR function to a complex MAX function. This results in decentralized e-auction protocols that are far better than any existing schemes in terms of computation and communication complexity. Our work shows, for the first time, that it is possible to securely and efficiently implement a Vickrey auction without involving any auctioneer, hence clearing a major obstacle of deploying Vickrey auctions in practice.
