Eyes On IZON: Surveilling IP Camera Security

Eyes On IZON: Surveilling IP Camera Security

Home IP cameras are becoming increasingly common thanks to sleek designs, WiFi connectivity, and intuitive mobile applications. Previously, such IP cameras were mostly in-use by home security aficionados and small business owners. Now, however, with increasing video quality and ease of use, these cameras are becoming popular for the average homeowner that wants a bit more confidence that all is well when they're absent. This presentation will provide insight into the security mechanisms being used by the IZON camera, some of the weaknesses found during research, and a few recommendations for them (or anyone else developing these sorts of cameras) to benefit from. Attention will be paid to topics such as network protocols, iOS app security, APIs, and other aspects of the camera's platform that has attack surface.
