We propose Cachet, a peer-to-peer social-network architecture that provides strong security and privacy guarantees. We leverage cryptographic techniques to protect the confidentiality of data, and design a hybrid structured-unstructured overlay paradigm where social contacts act as trusted caches to help reduce the cryptographic as well as the communication overhead in the network. We presented our paper on Cachet at the 8th ACM International Conference on Emerging Networking Experiments and Technologies (CoNEXT) 2012. For more details, see the Cachet project page.
