The dishonest participants have many advantages to gain others' shares by cheating in quantum secret sharing (QSS) protocols. However, the traditional methods such as identity authentication and message authentication can not resolve this problem due to the reason that the share has already been released to dishonest participants before realizing the deception. In this paper, a continuous variable QSS (CVQSS) scheme is proposed with fairness which ensures all participants can acquire or can not

The quantum channel based on two-mode squeezing states provides secure communications through which it can send shares successfully, as long as setting the squeezing and modulation parameters according to the quantum channel transmission efficiency and the Shannon information of shares. In addition, the Chinese Remainder Theorem (CRT) can provides tunable threshold structures according to demands of the complex quantum network and the strategy for fairness can be incorporated with other sharing schemes, resulting in perfect compatibility for practical implementations.
