Viakoo checks CCTV password vulnerabilities

Las Vegas, Nv (USA)

Viakoo used the ISC West event last week as a platform to debut the company's new Password Checker.  It is an automated solution that verifies network cameras are not using default or commonly used passwords, which are a proven network vulnerability for cyber attacks.

Additionally, Password Checker helps ensure compliance to many standards, including PCI, NERC, NIST, etc., which require that surveillance networks can not be compromised.

“Viakoo’s new Password Checker complements our portfolio of proactive automated data verification solutions by easily verifying the integrity of network cameras’ password protection,” said Viakoo, CEO, Bud Broomhead. “It is a highly efficient and cost-effective solution to harden physical security systems from cyber attacks.”

Viakoo Password Checker (as part of the Viakoo Predictive solution) examines HTML authentication points to test a variety of common URL entry points and frequently used passwords. Test results are reported for each camera on the network to alert system operators if they need to change some or all easily compromised passwords. Viakoo Password Checker can be run on-demand or on a scheduled basis.

Viakoo is offering qualified users the opportunity to beta test Password Checker.

Dahua Technology launches ePoE IP system

Dahua Technology Co., Ltd. is launching a system of extended Power over Ethernet (ePoE) devices including cameras, network switches and network recorders. Dahua ePoE IP system supports up to 800 metres between the ePoE camera and the ePoE network switch or ePoE NVR with an embedded switch. It overcomes the limitations of traditional Ethernet and POE (both restrict cable distances to around 100 metres (328 feet) between network ports) and eliminates the need for Ethernet extension devices or additional network switches.

The future is here - when surveillance meets AI

What will the world be like when surveillance meets AI (Analytics Intelligence)?

According to an IHS report from September 2016, security camera shipments continue to grow at 14.1% CAGR and are predicted to reach 190 million units in 2020, despite revenue growth having slowed to 8.1% CAGR. There are just too many cameras and video footage to be digested by human operators. Most security video footage is erased or over-written without being watched. Video Analytics (VA) Technology was once perceived as a solution to automate the utilisation of abundant video footage resources. By means of identifying and tagging the appearance of certain patterns in a video, the VA or AI system could perform search and run statistics on it.
