This is Shamir's Shared Secret implementation in PHP. It allows you to create shared secrets using the PHP classes or the CLI interface.

The cryptographic algorithm was created by the famous Adi Shamir, who also provided his name to the Rivest-Shamir-Adleman cryptosystem (RSA). The Shared Secret algorithm allows to divide a secret into parts (called shares). Each part can be handed out to a person or organization. The nice thing about this algorithm is, that some or all parts are needed to reconstruct the secret (called threshold). Most important about a secure way of sharing a secret is, that it complies to the following requirement:

  • exposure of one share does NOT expose any more hints to an attacker
  • predefined number of shares are required to obtain secret
  • knowledge of all-but-one no better than knowing none
  • shares combined have same magnitude in length than secret itself

This implementation can handle more than 256 shares and encodes the results in a compressed, but readable way.
