“Companies spend millions of dollars on firewalls, encryption, and secure access devices, and its money wasted; none of these measures address the weakest link in the security chain.” – Kevin Mitnick

Research Summary
My current research work investigates different fundamental social networking security challenges particularly present in Facebook. Facebook promotes friend relationships that can lead to a number of abuses ranging from collection and misuse of sensitive private data to cyberbullying and distribution of malware, fake news and propaganda. My research challenges the proposed academic work and existing implementations and introduces two novel approaches to prevent friend abuse in Facebook like online social networks.
