SONIC (SOcial Network Interconnect) is a research project that aims at developing an innovative concept for online social networks (OSN) that addresses problems of current OSN platforms. SONIC mainly focuses on novel concepts for privacy, security, and interoperability issues.
As part of SONIC, innovative protocols and algorithms will be designed and implemented, which allow seamless communication and data exchange between different brands and types of OSN platforms. The proposed solution facilitates a seamless integration of different OSN platforms and allows users of these services to change operator and platform at any time without losing any data.
SONIC has been chosen by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) as one of the IT projects in 2014 to be funded within the SoftwareCampus initiative. Software Campus integrates leading research and practical experience in a new type of concept in order to create a new generation of top managers and entrepreneurs with an excellent IT background.
