The penetration of information technologies into our lives has led to fundamental changes in our work, study, business, and leisure. It allows us to think, plan and make decisions in new ways. However, accelerating technological changes have created challenges related to digital security and user privacy. In recent years, unsecured metadata has led to serious security breaches, exposing businesses, individuals, and organisations to financial and reputational losses. Such security issues have become a significant concern and demonstrate the need to protect vital information about the original data. This report addresses common security issues related to embedded metadata. The report proposes a scheme for protecting embedded metadata using symmetric and asymmetric cryptography algorithms and describes the proposed model in detail.
