Title: A Browser-based Secure P2P Framework for Decentralized Online Social Networks
Published: Proceedings of the International Conference on Networked Systems, 2015, , pp. , Cottbus, Germany, March 2015

Abstract: Online social networks figured out to be the main tool to communicate in the Internet. While current centralized solutions suffer from censorship, privacy violations and unwanted marketing of the users data, decentralized solutions, e.g. based on p2p technology, promise to overcome these limitations. The downside of p2p solutions is the need to install additional software, which is nowadays not accepted by users which are used to web-based applications. With WebRTC, standard browsers can communicate directly, which allows to construct secure p2p overlays. We present our WebRTC-based p2p framework with a social network application on top, which uses a heavily modified version of OpenChord to provide a decentralized public key infrastructure, secure communication patterns and a set of building blocks to create a social network. Our prototype application proved its efficiency in a real world scenario and can now be reached via
