New CCIP™ Protects IP Surveillance Systems from Out of Network Attacks
CCIP Denies Out of Network Access to Camera Streams
ISC West 2016 — Las Vegas, NV (April 6, 2016) – Digital Watchdog (DW™), the industry leader in digital recorders, surveillance cameras and related management software, has announced the addition of a unique security feature between our IP cameras and recorders. CCIP (Closed Circuit Internet Protocol) is available for MEGApix® 1080p and 720p single-sensor cameras and VMAX IP Plus™ NVRs. You can see it demonstrated at the ISC West Security Industry Trade Show, April 6-8, 2016, in Las Vegas, Nevada, Booth 17089. Firmware updates to enable the feature are now available.
There is the possibility that an open platform camera or recorder’s username and password can be hacked, gaining access to the RTSP stream by using a simple URL. Digital Watchdog’s CCIP feature encrypts the RTSP stream, adding an additional layer of security.
“Digital Watchdog first made our name in CCTV analog surveillance where the nature of a closed system makes it less vulnerable to outside attacks,” said Mark Espenschied, Director of Marketing, Digital Watchdog. “We can now realize that kind of security for IP systems using MEGApix cameras and VMAX IP Plus NVRs with this simple to use but highly effective encryption.”
Camera streams are protected when a user ID and password are used with an NVR. The additional CCIP encryption is activated when the VMAX IP Plus system sends a request for an encrypted stream from the camera. The camera then encrypts its RTSP stream a second time, using the encryption’s user ID and password. The result is a secured and encrypted RTSP stream that can be read only by the requesting VMAX IP Plus NVR.
The CCIP feature is available in the following products:
VMAX IP Plus™ NVRs
Firmware to enable CCIP in additional MEGApix models will continue to be added. Firmware updates are available on our website, www.digital-watchdog.com.
CCIP will be a standard feature on all new MEGApix cameras.
