INTERACTIVE SECRET SHARE MANAGEMENT

Constantin Catalin Dragan

Abstract

In this paper, we have proposed a method for the management of a compartmented secret sharing scheme that allows the increase of the global threshold without modifying the existent shares of the participants. We have considered the Trusted Authority the central point of the scheme as a management unit: it creates the shares, in a RSA manner, and distributes them, rebuilds the secret S , and allows the registration of new participants without modifying the existing shares.
