Abstract : The inability of users to communicate secretly on online social networking (OSN) platforms is a key obstacle to overcome, if these platforms are to be used in the tactical world. While exclusive military networks such as MilBook and Service-Connected [exist, they do not support secret group communications. Furthermore, access to such social networks via mobile platforms raises a series of concerns like leakage of private data. Finally, any secret communications can be blocked by censorship firewalls that maintain state and look for specific keywords or features. In this project, we try to address all of these issues.
