To Control Unauthorized Propagation of Message in OSN Using NGCI Access Control Mechanism

J.S. Harilakshmanraj, Dr.N. Rajkumar


Online Social Network(OSN) sites act as a medium to spread their own views, activities and their thoughts to some camaraderie. The information is spread  on the web is determined by a human decision.Simultaneously,information security is evaluated based on the quality of the decision made by the users.Nowadays,many access control schemas are being used to control spreading of unauthorized information on OSN sites.In this paper,we present NGCI(Novel Group Centric Integrity)mechanism for information control on the web. Alternatively Monto-Carlo algorithm is used to determine shared information and to notify the user about the risk of information spread to different communities/groups. our framework used to reduce the risk of information flow to a particular user.
