I could then use my fully filled Latin square "private key", of which the public is a subset of. Using this private key, with some other algorithm, I could then decrypt your message."

What 'instructions' and 'algorithm' could one use to get this cryptosystem to work?

I click on the link but it talks only about secret-sharing, not public key cryptography. Is secret-sharing somehow a type of public key cryptography?
