comment RS Erasure Coding and Shamir's Secret Sharing
This answer goes more in the direction I was looking for. My original question was due to the technique they use in this article [dl.acm.org/citation.cfm?id=1993051]: basically they use RS for integrity and SS for security: I was guessing whether it was a redundant solution or not.

The paper you reference is the same as the one I cited in the original question. My question was focused on security: If I want a secret not to be uncovered unless m out of n participants are compromised can I use an RS code? Is it less secure than Shamir's algorithm? If yes, why?
