Abstract: Although secret informations can be stored or kept secret using cryptographic systems with secret key(s), some secrets are too dangerous or too valuable that this particular key(s) to be trusted with only one person. This secrets could be a combination to a banks vault, launching password or command to a missile system, etc. This talk is mainly about sharing a secret among the certain number of participants such a way that, recovering the secret is very hard if needed conditions are not satisfied. I’ll explain the problems faced during the development of these systems. In summarizing the talk I’ll explain the ideas to develop such systems from other disciplines. .
