Abstract

The fast-growing internet brought an increase in the number of online content sharing platforms, as well as the growing size of the user base. This growth has led to a plethora of challenges for such as privacy and security of the individual online. The work presented in this report focuses on the particular problem of image sharing platforms revolving around image metadata, for which an information leakage may help adversaries to track user's activities or may put the businesses at risk of reputation and financial losses. The aim is to improve the security of image metadata for images shared on social media or other types of media platforms, knowingly or unknowingly by users. In this report, we have proposed a design in which the image metadata is secured by applying Advanced Encryption Standard or AES-128 bits algorithm. The report also discusses the details of the proposed model and the potential challenges of unsecured metadata. The proposed design secures the image metadata through encryption and prevents its misuse, hence protecting the user's privacy.
