comment Can I pre-define the points in Shamir's Secret Sharing algorithm
I have a client/server architecture, where each client can have multiple username/passwords pairs. I wanted to encrypt data on the server side such that any client user logging in would be able to decrypt it. The server would randomly generate the encryption key, and then use a combination of the passwords of the users and Samir's Secret Sharing to allow the users to decrypt the encryption key, and then the data. I actually found a completely different way to do this, after posting this question, but was still interested to see if it was possible.
