Abstract

his project is part of the FlowNet initiative. FlowNet aims at providing Internet freedom and free flow information through socially informed, censor resistant online social networks. My contribution for FLowNet is in devel- oping an Android application, SecurePost. The requirement for SecurePost is two-fold. First, the system should facilitate secure, anonymous, group communication within a closed group of trusted members. Second, the general public on the Internet viewing this content, should be able to verify that the content was generated only by the said closed group of trusted members. The system consists of an Android client application, a proxy server and a browser-plugin. The OSNs supported by this system are Twitter and Facebook.
