ABSTRACT
Future communication networks will integrate `SSS\' concepts such as social networking, social networking device, and social desktop. In this paper, we focus on applications over social networking sites (SNS). Due to emerging bandwidth-hungry applications over SNS, hybrid fiber-wireless (FiWi) access networks are a promising solution to mitigate the last mile bandwidth bottleneck. SNS are particularly vulnerable to Automated Social Engineering (ASE) attacks due to their powerful information gathering functionalities. We discuss how integrated FiWi access networks supporting SNS systems perform, and how they can deal with threats related to ASE. In addition, we explain how an ASE attack may be launched from different networking platforms and propose a security architecture for ASE attacks over FiWi access networks.
