Online Social Networks (OSNs) are inherently designed to enable people to share personal and public information and make social connections with others. These OSNs provides digital social interactions and social as well as personal information sharing, but in sharing a number of security and privacy problems raised. While OSNs allow users to restrict access to shared data, they currently do not provide any mechanism to totally enforce privacy issue solver associated with multiple users. To this
more » ... end, we propose an approach to enable the protection of shared data associated with multiple users in OSNs. We formulate an access control model to capture the essence of multiparty authorization requirements, along with a multiparty policy specification scheme and a policy enforcement mechanism. Besides we also implement a proof-of-concept prototype which is called as MController (multi controller) having contributor, stakeholder and disseminator controllers along with owner controller.
