This paper analyses data privacy issues as they arise from different deployment scenarios for networks that use embedded sensor devices. Maintaining data privacy in pervasive environments requires the management and implementation of privacy protection measures close to the data source. We propose a set of atomic privacy parameters that is generic enough to form specific privacy classes and might be applied directly at the embedded sensor device.
