We propose a new scheme for quantum secret sharing QSS that uses a modulated high-dimensional time-bin entanglement. By modulating the relative phase randomly by {0,pi}, a sender with the entanglement source can randomly change the sign of the correlation of the measurement outcomes obtained by two distant recipients. The two recipients must cooperate if they are to obtain the sign of the correlation, which is used as a secret key. We show that our scheme is secure against intercept-and-resend I-R and beam splitting attacks by an outside eavesdropper thanks to the non-orthogonality of high-dimensional time-bin entangled states. We also show that a cheating attempt based on an I-R attack by one of the recipients can be detected by changing the dimension of the time bin entanglement randomly and inserting two -vacant- slots between the packets. Then, cheating attempts can be detected by monitoring the count rate in the vacant slots. The proposed scheme has better experimental feasibility than previously proposed entanglement-based QSS schemes.
