Here comes the Internet of Things. The name that recently makes red-hot people in business, researchers, developers, geeks and … students. The name that non-technology related people consider a kind of magic and even a danger to their privacy. The EU set the name as one of the emerging technologies and estimated the worldwide market will hit well over 500 billion US dollars in 2022, while the number of IoT devices in 2030 is expected to be around 3.2 billion.

What is IoT (Internet of Things), then? Surprisingly, the answer is not straightforward.
