Kurosawa, Obana, and Ogata proposed a (k,n) threshold scheme such that t cheaters can be identified, where t (k-1)/3. Their scheme is superior to previous schemes with respect to the number of participants for identifying cheaters and the size of a share. In this paper, we improve the detectability of their scheme. By using erasure decoding and the authentication code, we show that cheaters less than k/2 can be identified. Although the size of a share is larger than that of their scheme, it is independent of n.
