In the previous four party QSS protocol sharing quantum state information between the parties in the quantum system. But, the method lacks in security process when the information are shared between parties. So, to avoid this drawback, a new four party security based QSS method is proposed in this paper. Here, an ECC based security method is developed in the QSS protocol to share the secured information between the parties. The proposed method is comprised of three major processes, namely, ECC based Key generation, encryption & decryption, Information sharing and security evaluation. The proposed method performance is analyzed by invoking more number of information is shared between parties and the result from this process guarantees the healthiness of the proposed algorithm. The implementation results show the effectiveness of proposed ECC based four party QSS protocol in sharing the information between parties in the quantum state and the achieved improvement in security process. Furthermore, the performance of the proposed technique is evaluated by comparing with the previous four party QSS protocol.
