Title: Recent Advances in Secret Sharing
Secret-sharing schemes are a central cryptographic tool with a wide range of applications. Such schemes can be viewed as the information-theoretic distributed analog of encryption schemes. That is, given a secret message S the goal is to ``split'' it into many shares and store each share on a different device such that the secret can be recovered given ``sufficiently many'' different shares, whereas a ``small'' coalition of parties should not be able to learn anything about the secret even if they have unbounded computational resources. In this talk, I will present recent advances in various aspects of secret-sharing schemes and describe some interesting connections with problems from the domain of error-correcting codes and digital circuit design.
