# Commit-and-Prove and Encrypt-and-Prove Zero-Knowledge Proof Systems WG Charter
*This is a draft proposal.*
Commit-and-Prove Zero-Knowledge Proof systems (CP-ZKPs) are a generalization of zero-knowledge proofs in which the prover proves statements about values that are committed. Similarly, Encrypt-and-Prove proof systems allow the prover to prove statements about values that are encrypted.
## Scope of the working group and standard
The primary scope of the working group is standardizing terminology, definitions and protocols for commit-and-prove and encrypt-and-prove zero-knowledge proofs. While this standard will need to consider some specific commitment/encryption schemes, the standardization of these commitment/encryption schemes is a goal of the Primitives WG.
1. Agree on how to merge the results, goals, drafts etc. of the [commit-and-prove](https://community.zkproof.org/g/WG_COMMIT_PROVE) and [SAVER](https://community.zkproof.org/g/WG_SAVER) working groups.
2. Agree on a preliminary set of goals and open the discussion to the community.
3. Decide the [**content**](https://hackmd.io/niBDPppqRpiHun-Fple8FA) of the standardization draft proposal (notions, terminology, which commitment/encryption schemes and commit/encrypt-and-prove schemes).
2. Describe generic construction methodologies and specify concrete schemes for both commit-and-prove and encrypt-and-prove proof systems.
## Relation with other ZKProof working groups
This working group is the result of a merge of the [commit-and-prove](https://community.zkproof.org/g/WG_COMMIT_PROVE) and [SAVER](https://community.zkproof.org/g/WG_SAVER) working groups.
Some of the goals of this WG (in particular, the standardization of commitment schemes) are related to the activities of the [ZKP-friendly Primitives](https://community.zkproof.org/g/WG_PRIMITIVES) WG.
