Abstract: The rapid growth of IoT devices and its impact in our day to day is one of the biggest challenges for information security nowadays. Privacy in IoT is one of these challenges since IoT devices collect massive amounts of personal data about users and its environment unbeknownst to them and, due to the hardware limitations of the devices, they cannot apply traditional encryption schemes and other privacy centered architectures. We must search new ways to connect these devices without forfeit user privacy and to guarantee same security standards as other current user based applications. Currently, there are many ways to provide user privacy in several contexts but there is no standard to provide users and developers ways to achieve it IoT applications. This paper presents a framework proposal to connect one or several IoT devices to create applications with user privacy in its design through The Onion Router (TOR) to send data over the net anonymously. Our main contribution is to adapt a device whose capabilities to use a heavy encryption- based technology are limited into a fully extendable system that closes the gap between anonymity and IoT.
