In this chapter, we present a privacy and security framework for designers of technologies that augment humans’ cognitive and perceptive capabilities. The framework consists of several groups of questions, meant to guide designers during the different stages of the design process. The objective of our work is to support the need for considering implications of novel technologies with regard to privacy and security early in the design process rather than post-hoc. The framework is based on a thorough review of the technologies presented earlier on in this book as well as of prior research in the field of technology augmentation. From this review, we derived several themes that are not only valuable pointers for future work but also serve as a basis for the subsequent framework. We point out the need to focus on the following aspects: data handling, awareness, user consent, and the design of the user interface.
