Social networks that are built on top of the web, e.g., orkut[9], have been proliferating among online communities. We propose social internetworks, where essential functions of social networks are implemented on top of peer-to-peer networks. Participants and communities are connected through attribute queries and reputation queries; reputation queries are applied to attributes with Secure EigenTrust algorithm[1].
