comment Can I pre-define the points in Shamir's Secret Sharing algorithm
But to my understanding k=1 means having one share alone allows you to reconstruct the secret directly, without needing another share. In SSS, this results in handing S to the 4 people directly, because a_0 = S and there are no random coefficients to be chosen.

k=1 doesn't require a sharing scheme?

Thanks for your insight, has already helped a lot!

I should have added this, actually same files yielding the same output is a feature, not a bug :) The entire scheme is a "convergent encryption" scheme. This means that given the same file, both parties need to be able to come up with the same salt, too. That's why the initial idea was to just reuse the file hash for the salt. But you're still right, I see now that doing so would kind of take the whole parallelization aspect of the salt away. Thanks!
