We study the dissemination of dynamic content, such as news or traffic information, over a mobile social network. In this application, mobile users subscribe to a dynamic-content distribution service, offered by their service provider. To improve coverage and increase capacity, we assume that users share any content updates they receive with other users(More)
Ridge regression is an algorithm that takes as input a large number of data points and finds the best-fit linear curve through these points. The algorithm is a building block for many machine-learning operations. We present a system for privacy-preserving ridge regression. The system outputs the best-fit curve in the clear, but exposes no other information(More)
Recommender systems typically require users to reveal their ratings to a recommender service, which subsequently uses them to provide relevant recommendations. Revealing ratings has been shown to make users susceptible to a broad set of inference attacks, allowing the recommender to learn private user attributes, such as gender, age, etc. In this work, we(More)
We propose introducing modern parallel programming paradigms to secure computation, enabling their secure execution on large datasets. To address this challenge, we present Graph SC, a framework that (i) provides a programming paradigm that allows non-cryptography experts to write secure code, (ii) brings parallelism to such secure implementations, and(More)
Opportunistic ad-hoc communication enables portable devices such as smartphones to effectively exchange information, taking advantage of their mobility and locality. The nature of human interaction makes information dissemination using such networks challenging. We use three different experimental traces to study fundamental properties of human(More)
Sharing content over a mobile network through opportunistic contacts has recently received considerable attention. In proposed scenarios, users store content they download in a local cache and share it with other users they meet, e.g., via Bluetooth or WiFi. The storage capacity of mobile devices is typically limited; therefore, identifying which content a(More)
User demographics, such as age, gender and ethnicity, are routinely used for targeting content and advertising products to users. Similarly, recommender systems utilize user demographics for personalizing recommendations and overcoming the cold-start problem. Often, privacy-concerned users do not provide these details in their online profiles. In this work,(More)
A new generation of content delivery networks for live streaming, video on demand, and software updates takes advantage of a peer-to-peer architecture to reduce their operating cost. In contrast with previous uncoordinated peer-to-peer schemes, users opt-in to dedicate part of the resources they own to help the content delivery, in exchange for receiving(More)
We consider a content delivery architecture based on geographically dispersed groups of "last-mile" CDN servers, e.g., set-top boxes located within users' homes. These servers may belong to administratively separate domains, such as multiple ISPs. We propose a set of scalable, adaptive mechanisms to jointly manage content replication and request routing(More)
