Secret-Sharing Schemes: A Survey

  title={Secret-Sharing Schemes: A Survey},
  author={Amos Beimel},
A secret-sharing scheme is a method by which a dealer distributes shares to parties such that only authorized subsets of parties can reconstruct the secret. Secret-sharing schemes are important tools in cryptography and they are used as a building box in many secure protocols, e.g., general protocol for multiparty computation, Byzantine agreement, threshold cryptography, access control, attribute-based encryption, and generalized oblivious transfer. In this survey, we will describe the most… CONTINUE READING
