Abstract

Current social networks require users to place absolute faith in their operators, and the inability of operators to protect users from malicious agents has led to sensitive private in-formation being made public. We propose an architecture for social networking that protects users' social information from both the operator and other network users. This archi-tecture builds a social network out of smart clients and an untrusted central server in a way that removes the need for faith in network operators and gives users control of their privacy.
