In this article it talks about some of the applications of zero knowledge proofs. One of them being for password authentication. How exactly can the Zero Knowledge protocol be applied to things like browser authentication - google chrome remembering your passwords for websites etc. will this technology have an impact on this in any way? Does this mean browsers could theoretically implement this technology for password authentication?
“Zero Knowledge Protocol (or Zero Knowledge Password Proof, ZKP) is a way of doing authentication where no passwords are exchanged, which means they cannot be stolen. This is cool because it makes your communication so secure and protected that nobody else can find out what you’re communicating about or what files you are sharing with each other”
