Syeda Maimuna Afreen | Shameem Akther [5]


Abstract: Four Square is one of the Geosocial application in which lots of communities interrelate with their surrounding environment through their friends and their recommendations. Regarding the security issues Geosocial application can simply misused, for instance to trace the user or target them for home invasions. Therefore providing the privacy to the Geosocial application is the research issue, existing system provides location privacy without adding uncertainty into the query results or relying on strong assumptions about server security. In existing system user will share only the location with its other users but this sharing is not up to the mark secure. Therefore in the proposed system which provides the security to the user's location as well as the contents will also be shared with the other users. By using our proposed system cost of the server database will decrease and the time required for transmitting the message is also decreases. The system encrypts the message for the security purpose. The proposed method provides privacy and improves the performance of the Geosocial application.
