General secret sharing based on quantum Fourier transform

  • Samaneh MashhadiEmail author


In this paper, we based on the quantum Fourier transform and monotone span program design a hybrid secret sharing. This hybrid scheme has the advantages of both classical and quantum secret sharing. For example, it has general access structure, and is secure against quantum computation and eavesdropper attacks. Moreover, any one of the participants does not know the other participants’ shares.
