The origin of the term privacy comes from the times of Aristotle with the distinction between the public and private life and reaches nowdays giving the term an additional dimension: the dimension of the information the person carries. This dimension is related to the collection, storing and processing of personal data, where personal data are all the information which refer to and describe one person (name, age, education etc). The development of the technology made perceptible the transformation of our society to information society and its role in the market and as a result the issue for the protection of personal data is now set. As the legislative measures are not sufficient, the appropriate technologies of privacy enhancing technologies must be used, always accordingly to the technological issues that arise and the demands of the user. Our effort in this thesis focuses on the study of privacy enhancing technologies using virtual lab environment. More specifically, the technologies refer to anonymous browsing with TOR, encryption with SSL protocoll and deploy of Platform of Privacy Preferences (P3P). For this purpose we used a packet sniffer (Wireshark) for capturing packets in order to examine the effective defence of a system towards the attack of an eavesdropper. Summarizing, an evaluation of the results of our study takes place and proposals for the direction in which future researches can take place.
