Yuncheng He
Abstract—As the internet of things permeates more aspects of life, the desire to access one’s social network from whatever connected device available will become a requirement. Cloud-based personal data, remotely accessible from any connected device is evitable.
This paper offers a solution to secure and assessable private social networks by creating a “Security Box” on which a private social network can provide safely distributed access. This access is managed, yet interactions are not burdened by onerous rules and membership overhead, that plague many private networks.
The Security Box is a cloud-based private social network security mechanism, implemented on a Amazon EC2/S3 cloud. The Security Box network provides multiple levels of security, enhanced personal and group encrypted files database, authorization control and 128-bit AES encrypted key management. Applying a Client/Server network model, the resulting private social network whose members enjoys a widely accessible shared database, suitable protected from unauthorized intrusion.

Index Terms—Cloud network, encryption, private social network, security.
