Interested in securely sharing a secret?

Post date: September 17, 2006, 08:09 Category: Views: 2817 Comments
Tutorial quote: I needed a method for sharing a secret that required multiple agents to coordinate before the secret could be recovered. This is useful for encrypting keys used in critical backups. I decided to use an implementation of Shamir's Secret Splitting Scheme (The S in RSA).

Currently I'm using a program called 'ssss' to do secret sharing.
