Disruption-tolerant, delay-tolerant, or pocket-switched networking architectures are popular ways of exploiting human connectivity to build new mobile ad hoc networks and applications. Much work has involved looking at ways of detecting community structure in human social networks to better route information through these DTNs. An alternative method might be to exploit the known existing community structure; i.e., a user’s self-reported social network. This talk will present some experimental results which indicate that self-reported social networks can be used for DTN routing, and go on to discuss our new work looking at the privacy issues in these social/DTN applications and networks.
