Crypto-computing is a set of well-known techniques for computing with encrypted data. The security of the corresponding protocols are usually proven in the semi-honest model. In this work, we propose a new class of zero-knowledge proofs, which are tailored for cryptocomputing protocols. First, these proofs directly employ properties of the underlying crypto systems and thus many facts have more concise proofs compared to generic solutions. Second, we show how to achieve universal composability
