FACE TRANSITION: Obtaining Neighbour Node Anonymity in Mobile Opportunistic Social Networks

Authors(2) :-Priyanka Mohan, Mrs. Shashi Rekha H

In mobile opportunistic social networks (MOSNs), mobile devices carried by people communicate with each other directly when they meet for proximity-based MOSN services (e.g., file sharing) without the support of infrastructures. In current methods, when nodes meet, they simply communicate with their real IDs, which leads to privacy and security concerns. Anonymizing real IDs among neighbor nodes solves such concerns. However, this prevents nodes from collecting real ID-based encountering information, which is needed to support MOSN services. In Face Change, each node continually changes its pseudonyms and parameters when communicating with neighbors nodes to hide its real ID
