Surveillance Cameras

Surveillance Cameras

According to IHS, there were 245 million professionally installed video surveillance cameras active and operational globally in 2014.

But are they secure?

With recent camera attacks there is a need for increased IoT security posture. The DDoS attack carried out by hackers using tens of millions of unprotected IoT devices has presented what security pros have known for a long time: IoT devices are vulnerable to attacks. In this attack, millions of webcams were unknowingly recruited to conduct the attack on major ISPs on the East Coast. Many of these webcams are now being recalled.

Device Authority's KeyScaler platform enables increased security with lower operating costs. Here's how:

Manufacturer-Independent Security Posture
  • Customer-specific certificates and credentials are provisioned and controlled independently from the device manufacturing process to establish high-assurance security for device owners.
Automated Camera Security Management
  • KeyScaler enables rapid deployment and ongoing security management for surveillance cameras through automated device registration, certificate provisioning, and password management.
  • KeyScaler provides large-scale security automation for system integrators and customers with hundreds or thousands of cameras across multiple facilities or geographic locations.

Here's how we do it: 

Automated Device Owner Certificate Provisioning
  • Rapid customer-centric certificate generation and provisioning for surveillance camera deployments
  • Automated certificate lifecycle management with security policy-driven revocation and renewal
  • Hands-free bulk provisioning for large-scale deployments
