As augmented reality mobile applications become more ingrained in everyday life, so do privacy concerns regarding these applications, the objective of the proposed research is the development of a framework that will protect users’ visual data while they are using such applications. The current model separates augmented reality application in the network process and the visual process, and then restricts and monitors communication between the two, ensuring any visual data is protected.  Future work will include making this framework accessible through various platforms and engines used to create mobile augmented reality applications.
