Threshold encryption: The secret sharing model

Marrying Threshold Cryptography with Encryption Keys: Why?

Cover

Threshold cryptography – often referred to as ‘secret sharing’ – is a mechanism for sharing information among a group of participants. It’s not very well-known, but it can offer tremendous benefits within an existing cybersecurity stack.

It works by allocating a portion of an authentication key to said group, but not enough for one to act alone. What implications does this model hold for cybersecurity?

In this article, explore threshold cryptography and its relationship to encryption keys. Topics include:

  1. Reasons why threshold cryptography isn’t well-known
  2. How threshold cryptography works
  3. Reasons why it makes sense to connect threshold cryptography with encryption keys.
