The work addresses the problem of cheating prevention in secret sharing. Two cheating scenarios are considered. In the first one, the cheaters always submit invalid shares to the combiner. In the second one, the cheaters collectively decide which shares are to be modified so the combiner gets a mixture of valid and invalid shares from the cheaters. The secret scheme is said to be k-cheating immune if any group of k cheaters has no advantage over honest participants. The paper investigates cryptographic properties of the defining function of secret sharing so the scheme is k-cheating immune. Constructions of secret sharing immune against k cheaters are given.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
