Technology has become profoundly integrated into modern society; however, this increases the risk of vulnerabilities, such as hacking and other system errors, along with other online threats.

Security, Privacy, and Anonymization in Social Networks: Emerging Research and Opportunities is a pivotal reference source for the most up-to-date research on edge clustering models and weighted social networks. Presenting widespread coverage across a range of applicable perspectives and topics, such as neighborhood attacks, fast k-degree anonymization (FKDA), and vertex-clustering algorithms, this book is ideally designed for academics, researchers, post-graduates, and practitioners seeking current research on undirected networks and greedy algorithms for social network anonymization.

Topics Covered

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Edge Clustering Models
  • Fast K-Degree Anonymization (FKDA)
  • Greedy Algorithms for Social Network Anonymization (GASNA)
  • Neighborhood Attacks
  • Sequential Clustering Algorithms
  • Undirected Networks
  • Vertex-Clustering Algorithms
  • Weighted Social Networks
