Executive Summary

Social network information is now being used in ways for which it may have not been originally intended. In particular, increased use of smartphones capable of running applications which access social network information enable applications to be aware of a user's position and preferences.

This paper presents a framework called Secure SocialAware (SSA) which allows for the interaction of social network information with real-world location-based services without compromising user privacy and security.
