Interesting, thanks for pointing this out! Do you have any insights on how hard it is to implement? I'm not familiar enough with ADSS to tell whether it's worth the innovation token. [0]

That's a fair call, Shamir's secret sharing is pleasantly simple to use and understand.

Read the paper a while ago now but the scheme is still all fundamentally built on SSS, the auth, error checking and privacy layers are on top, so it's not a complete rework of what currently exists, more just some additions. Quite sure people have written some (perhaps all?) of these extras already in concert with regular secret sharing.
