The notion of families of ideal threshold schemes (ITS) is introduced, their properties and applications are investigated. We consider secret sharing schemes whose parameters can be adjusted. Our model is a threshold scheme family (TSF) whose threshold scheme parameters can be modified dynamically. Some applications of this model includes schemes which have disenrollment capability, and a scheme to resist cheating.
