Multi dimensional compartment schemes
We define a multi dimensional compartment scheme, which is a secret sharing scheme where each participant acts not only as a member of one party, but as a representative of one party on each dimension. The secret can be reconstructed whenever on each dimension at least one representative of a predetermined number of distinct parties contribute its private share. It is also shown how a non-complete multi dimensional compartment scheme can be realized.
