Original Abstract

The paper deals with user privacy in geosocial applications. Geosocial applications have become very popular but can misuse user's private data and location. We propose a novel solution that prevents tracking and protects against personal identity and location being misused by external attackers or service providers. The proposed framework provides security and privacy protection for geosocial applications that provide, for example, information sharing, geotagging, and monitoring of people without revealing their identity to unauthorized persons, including the service provider.
