A privacy pattern catalog provides guidance with respect to data protection requirements, to both technical and non-technical personnel that are involved in the development of software that processes personally identifiable information. This paper describes a privacy pattern catalog that was compiled with the help of the structured-case methodology. The proposed privacy pattern catalog is an interactive online tool that classifies privacy patterns according to the privacy principle requirements of the ISO/IEC 29100. In addition to the ability to browse through the classification, the tool provides an option to export selected information into a Microsoft Word document for further use. A classification of patterns, based on usage context, application permissions and hierarchical relations of patterns in terms of their level of generality is proposed. While, category, permission and granularity filters are highlighted as a future implementation of the proposed pattern classification scheme.
