We first review the notion of social secret sharing and its trust function. We then illustrate how this construction can be used in cloud computing to create a self-organizing environment. In fact, we show distributed secure systems using threshold secret sharing can be adjusted automatically based on the resource availability of the cloud providers. Accordingly, we propose a new trust function with social characteristics in order to improve the existing social secret sharing scheme.
