Abstract:The peer-to-peer paradigm is used in more and more advanced applications. One of the next areas that promise a success for the p2p paradigm lies in the upcoming trend of social networks. However, several security issues have to be solved in p2p-based social network platforms. We present in this paper a practical solution that establishes a trust infrastructure, enables authenticated and secure communication between users in the social network and provides personalized, fine grained data access control. Evaluation shows that the solution is practical and lightweight both in time consumption and traffic overhead.
