Pisces: Anonymous Communication Using Social Networks [article]

Prateek Mittal, Matthew Wright, Nikita Borisov
2012 arXiv   pre-print
In this paper, we propose Pisces, a decentralized protocol for anonymous communications that leverages users' social links to build circuits for onion routing.  ...  In Pisces, we discover peers by using random walks in the social network graph with a bias away from highly connected nodes to prevent a few nodes from dominating the circuit creation process.  ...  Finally, using real world social network topologies, we show that Pisces provides significantly higher anonymity than existing approaches.  ...

SGor: Trust graph based onion routing

Peng Zhou, Xiapu Luo, Ang Chen, Rocky K.C. Chang
2013 Computer Networks  
We evaluate SGor with simulation-based experiments using several real-world social trust datasets.  ...  The experimental results confirm that SGor can mitigate key limitations in the use of trust for protecting anonymity but introduces only a few overheads.  ...  For example, if we derive a trust graph from an online social network and apply it to SGor, the members of this online social network can use SGor to protect their anonymity when they visit Internet services  ...

2016 Proceedings of the 2016 ACM SIGSAC Conference on Computer and Communications Security - CCS'16  
We experimentally demonstrate the applicability of adaptive random walks on a number of social network based security and privacy systems, including Sybil defenses, anonymous communication and link privacy  ...  Currently, the design of such social security mechanisms is limited to the classical paradigm of using fixed-length random walks for all nodes on a social graph.  ...  The Pisces protocol [34] is a low-latency anonymity system that leverages social links.  ...

LinkMirage: How to Anonymize Links in Dynamic Social Systems [article]

Changhchang Liu, Prateek Mittal
2016 arXiv   pre-print
First, we propose LinkMirage, a community detection based algorithm for anonymizing links in social network topologies; LinkMirage preserves community structures in the social topology while anonymizing  ...  Social network based trust relationships present a critical foundation for designing trustworthy systems, such as Sybil defenses, secure routing, and anonymous/censorshipresilient communications.  ...  For instance, Tor operators [11] (or other anonymous communication network such as Pisces in [30] ) can leverage the perturbed social relationships to set up the anonymous circuit; 2) Local access to  ...

2019 Education Sciences  
This article aims to expand the current understandings of social justice in networked learning practices by challenging the ways in which online subjectivities are conceptualised in communal settings.  ...  justice are to be made in networked learning.  ...  In this sense, social absence is not an attempt to refashion anonymity with a new outlook.  ...

VirtualFriendship: Hiding interactions on Online Social Networks

Filipe Beato, Mauro Conti, Bart Preneel, Dario Vettore
2014 2014 IEEE Conference on Communications and Network Security  
The enormous popularity of Online Social Networks (OSNs) dramatically changed the way people communicate and interact with each other.  ...  In fact, OSN providers can directly access a big amount of information about users and infer further information when using data mining techniques (e.g., about the on line interactions among two users)  ...  Usually, anonymous networks, such as Tor [19] , are used as the solution to hide identity of the communication and achieve anonymity.  ...

Privacy Information Security Classification for Internet of Things Based on Internet Data

Xiaofeng Lu, Zhaowei Qu, Qi Li, Pan Hui
2015 International Journal of Distributed Sensor Networks  
This paper focuses on studying the attributes of the privacy and proposes privacy information security classification (PISC) model.  ...  The privacy is classified into four security classifications by PISC, and each classification has its security goal, respectively.  ...  Related Work Facebook is the largest social network website, where people can share their photos and personal information. In Facebook, a photo can be set in different privacy levels [15] .  ...

Systematizing Decentralization and Privacy: Lessons from 15 Years of Research and Deployments

Carmela Troncoso, Marios Isaakidis, George Danezis, Harry Halpin
2017 Proceedings on Privacy Enhancing Technologies  
A number of systems implement social-based communication to resist Sybil attacks. For instance Drac [44] and Pisces [108] use social-networks to support routing of messages.  ...  Systems may use the underlying social trust structure to build overlay privacy-friendly social network services, as surveyed by Paul et al. [120] .  ...
