Secret sharing schemes with three or four minimal qualified subsets

Jaume Martí-Farré and Carles Padró

Abstract: In this paper we study secret sharing schemes whose access structure has three or four minimal qualified subsets. The ideal case is completely characterized and for the non-ideal case we provide bounds on the optimal information rate.

Category / Keywords: cryptographic protocols / secret sharing schemes, information rate, ideal secret sharing schemes, linear secret sharing schemes
