Quantum Secret Sharing (QSS) is one of the important branches in Quantum Cryptography which combines Quantum with classical mechanics. The main objective of this paper is to propose Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) for solving heuristic attacks. The QSS and ECC methods has been tested in the following three quantum algorithms like Genetic Algorithm (GA), Tabu Search algorithm (TS), Cuckoo Search algorithm (CS). By considering the error rate, ECC method has higher error rate than the existing QSS method and secrecy also has been improved. The proposed ECC method is implemented and tested for 50 iterations and also comparison is made with QSS.
