Social Networks Security and Privacy'10 Call for paper

The goal of this one day workshop, held in conjuction with Security and
Privacy 2010,
is to bring together researchers and practitioners from academia and
industry to focus
 on understanding social network security and privacy issues, and
establishing new
collaborations in these areas.

Online social networks such as Facebook are among the most popular sites on
the Web
and continue to grow rapidly. They provide mechanisms to establish
identities, share
information, and create relationships. The resulting social graph provides a
basis for
communicating and distributing and locating content.

Even if social networks are now widely used , their security and privacy
remain challenging
because of the tension between sharing information and ensuring privacy.
This workshop is
intended to discuss the current security and privacy issues of social
network and explore new
ways to address them.


The scope of SNSP 2010 includes, but is not limited to :

- User Privacy
- Anonymity and identity
- Account security
- Spam
- User authentication and verification
- Information flow security
