ABSTRACT
<p>Online social networks routinely publish data of interest to third parties, but in so doing often reveal relationships, such as a friendship or contractual association, that an attacker can exploit. This systematic look at existing privacy-preservation techniques highlights the vulnerabilities of users even in networks that completely anonymize identities. Through a taxonomy that categorizes techniques according to the degree of user identity exposure, the authors examine the ways that existing approaches compromise relation privacy and offer more secure alternatives.</p>
INDEX TERMS
Keywords: relation privacy, online social networks, user privacy, utility loss.
