This chapter outlines a first attempt to provide a solution to security and privacy challenges of the Internet of Things. It presents a brief overview of the IoT with particular attention paid to security and data privacy. The chapter highlights security and privacy challenges in order to clarify this issue and lay the foundation for the solution. It draws the outline of the current state of the art in the field of IoT security. The chapter aims to define the use of Unified Secure Communications, Services and Web-Applications as a foundation for home/small/medium network hubs based on existing, tested and verified solutions (e.g. Pi Platform). It presents a zero-trust approach for security and privacy protection. In combination with the specific use case, the chapter demonstrates the applicability of this zero-trust approach in the form of a secure and private interactive intelligent conversational system and paves the way to the final sections on discussion and conclusions.
