Abstract Over the last years online social networks have become more and more popular. For example several million are now participating in Facebook, one of the most famous platforms. People store a lot of data within such networks. This entails giving the data to a company as all these networks are server based. This data can then be sold to other companies. As a consequence no one knows anymore where his data is and what has been done with it. To give users back the control over their data, we propose an approach for building an online social network using a peer-to-peer infrastructure. Our approach includes encryption of the data. In this manner, the data can be distributed, is not under the control of a company, and the user has full control about who can access this data. Sonja Buchegger and Anwitaman Datta proposed in [PSON] to build a peer-to-peer system for social networks, called PeerSON. In this thesis we describe the design and implementation of the peer-to-peer infrastructure for social networks without central servers, including topology and protocols for information exchange.
