Secret sharing schemes have found applications in speci c cryptography [2]. These schemes o er a way to protect the secret key by distributing shares

to participants. Many methods have been developed over the last decades [4, 6]. One of these methods is based on exploring the minimal codewords

in a linear code [5]. But determining the minimal codewords of a code is very challenging and dicult problem in general [1, 3]. In this study, we

characterize minimal codewords of a special class of cyclic codes that have generators as Fibonacci polynomials over nite elds. Also, we determine

access structures of these codes which are crucial to secret sharing.
