This thesis focuses on privacy aspects of identification and key exchange schemes for mobile social networks. In particular, we consider identification schemes that combine wide area mobile communication with short range communication such as Bluetooth, WiFi. The goal of the thesis is to identify possible security threats to personal information of users and to define a framework of security and privacy requirements in the context of mobile social networking. The main focus of the work is on security in closed groups and the procedures of secure registration, identification and invitation of users in mobile social networks. The thesis includes an evaluation of the proposed identification and key exchange schemes and a proposal for a series of modifications that augments its privacy-preserving capabilities. The ultimate design provides secure and effective identity management in the context of, and in respect to, the protection of user identity privacy in mobile social networks.
