In the Internet of Things (IoT), objects, equipped with sensing, processing, storage and decision-making capabilities, actively interact with one another and with humans. Even if they have been conceived and programmed to make all their activities in security, several factors, such as weak implementations of communication protocols, metadata information exchange, and architectural flaws, could jeopardize security and privacy. Moreover, due to its complexity and attitude to change rapidly, and to the ultra-densification trend of the current communication infrastructure, new threats to the privacy might arise. After a brief introduction to IoT privacy issues, we describe how the evolution of the current wireless communication infrastructure toward the 5G generation network might undermine the privacy in the IoT. Then we propose a methodology of analysis, which looks at privacy threats from different perspectives and at various levels of abstraction.
