The Internet of Things is the network of sensors, smart devices and, in general, any items embedded with electronics connected to the Internet. The IoT at large then allow collection and analysis of data from the IoT devices and offers control and useful insights in the data together with comparison and social sharing. This brings important challenges connected to privacy.

The subject of the thesis is to explore use cases of the internet of things and identify privacy issues. Then a set of best practices and guidelines to address these issues from the perspective of software architectures should be created. The final part of the thesis is to verify that these recommendations can be practically used. The thesis will come up with an idea how to implement them and will create proof of concept using one particular problem.
