Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Verifiable computing is enabling a computer to offload the computation of some function, to other perhaps untrusted clients, while maintaining verifiable results. The other clients evaluate the function and return the result with a proof that the computation of the function was carried out correctly. The introduction of this notion came as a result of the increasingly common phenomenon of "outsourcing" computation to untrusted users in projects such as SETI@home and also to the growing desire of weak clients to outsource computational tasks to a more powerful computation service. The term verifiable computing was invented by Rosario Gennaro, Craig Gentry, and Bryan Parno.
