Abstract [en]

Online Social Networks (OSN) of today represent centralized repositoriesof personally idenfiable information (PII) of their users. Considering theirimpressive growth they arguably are the most popular service on the Internet, bothby technology savvy but even more by comparibly inexpert audiences, today. Beingvoluntarily maintained and automatically exploitable, they are a promising andchallenging target for commercial exploitation and abuse by miscreants. Severalapproaches have been proposed to mitigate this threat by design. Removing the centralizedstorage, they distribute the service and data storage, to protect their usersfrom a provider that has access to all the information users put into the system.This paper gives an overview of currently proposed approaches, and classifies themaccording to their core design decisions.
