The need for increased network security has never been greater, with a
new high profile security breach seemingly occurring on a weekly 
basis. Encryption can be a valuable tool in increasing network 
security, however, its weakness often resides in the vulnerability of 
the cryptographic key. If a given node in a network contains the whole
key and it is compromised, then the network’s security is breached. 
Also, if the key is destroyed then all the information it protects 
could be lost. In this paper we look at the option of breaking the key
up over multiple nodes, in this case six, while only three nodes are 
necessary to replicate the key and unlock the lock. This hopefully 
creates greater security while also providing a greater level of fault
tolerance by allowing retrieval of the entire key even if three of the
nodes are compromised.
