Library for Shamir Secret Sharing in the Galois Field 2**8 ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ This library implements what is known as Shamir Secret Sharing. This entails encoding a secret as an integer and then constructing a polynomial whose coefficients are random and calculating coordinate pairs along the resultant curve. These coordinate pairs are considered 'shares' more»
THe GFShare Library was written primarily by Daniel Silverstone based upon ideas and code by Mark D. Wooding. Simon McVittie contributed bug fixes and also a nice tex document proving the method used.
