How to protect your privacy when using wireless IP camera 


Network or Internet protocol (IP) cameras are growing in popularity  as a security tool to protect businesses and homes around the world  because of their low-cost capability to transmit images or video feeds  in real-time. By using these cameras, users can access live audio and  video footage from their home or business through a smartphone or office  computer as long as they have an Internet connection.

However, a number of wireless IP camera models are vulnerable to  hacking that can compromise your privacy at home or in the office. In  this article, we will discuss actions aimed at improving the security of  IP cameras and ways to increase their protection against hackers.

Things to Consider Before Buying a wireless IP Camera:

Ensuring the security of your IP cameras should start during the  shopping process. When buying your cameras, you should focus your  attention on their security features. Here are some things to consider  when shopping for your cameras:

Dependable Wireless Transmission

When buying a camera, you should ask for a model that supports the  latest wireless security protocols such as the Wi-Fi Protected Access  version 2 (WPA2). This will help ensure that the video feeds from the  cameras are secured while they are sent to your home wireless router.

Secure Internet Transmission
 

When you want  to access the video feeds from your IP cameras remotely, they will be  sent across the Internet. To help secure your connection, ask for  cameras that have the capability to encrypt your data including  password, username, as well as the live feeds. You can also check these  capabilities by checking the product’s label, researching the product  online, or directly contacting the manufacturer.

Multiple Levels of Access Feature

You should also look for cameras that can allow various levels of  access. This will let you provide several users with access to your  camera feeds with certain permissions or limitations. For example, some  cameras have separate settings for administrators and users. Under this  set-up, only an administrator can initiate remote changes to the camera  settings or take such actions as creating new accounts, changing  passwords or adjusting the camera’s position.

How Hackers can Attack a wireless IP Camera

There are various ways in which hackers can access or attack an IP  camera. According to researchers from the security company Qualys, there  are thousands of wireless IP cameras linked to the Internet that have  major security vulnerabilities. Some camera vendors also provide  tutorials on how to allow their devices to be accessible from the  Internet, information that can be a tool for hackers.

Here are some techniques that hackers use to attack or access an IP camera:

Hackers can control a camera by utilizing the Shodan search engine to  look for an HTTP header that is specific to a camera’s Web-based user  interfaces. Cyber criminals can also identify and access a camera by  looking at its vendor’s own dynamic domain name system (DNS) services.
Another  method used by hackers is by exploiting a camera’s Web-interface  weakness that allows them to get a snapshot of its memory. The memory  dump usually contains such information as an administrator username and  password, as well as Wi-Fi details.
Another attack strategy is by  exploiting a cross-site request forgery (CSR) flaw in the camera’s  interface. This can be done by deceiving the camera administrator into  opening a specifically created link to add a secondary administrator  account to the camera.
Another method is by implementing a  brute-force assault to determine a camera’s password. Cameras without  sufficient protection against this type of attack are vulnerable.

Steps One Should Take to Bolster a Camera’s Security

Here are some ways to boost the security of a wireless IP camera:

Regularly conducting software updates – Camera manufacturers  regularly introduce updates to their products’ software to protect them  against the latest vulnerabilities. You should register your camera or  sign up with the manufacturer to automatically receive the latest  updates.
Regularly monitoring your camera’s password settings – You  should set up your IP camera in a way that it will require a password.  You should read the camera’s user guide to learn how to do this and  never keep the default password enabled.
Activating your camera’s  security features – Check to see if your camera has a feature that  allows encryption of data transmitted by Internet and turn this feature  on. To ensure that your password and username will be encrypted, you  should check that the login page for your camera has a URL that starts  with “https”.
Create a strong password – You should always make sure  to create your own password on your camera and avoid using the camera’s  default username and password. Make sure that the password you make is  very difficult to guess and includes both alpha and numeric characters.
Utilize  a secure Wi-Fi connection – You should ensure that you are using a  secure Wi-Fi network when using your mobile phone application (app).  This is to guarantee that your password or video feeds are protected.  You should also avoid using your mobile app from a public Wi-Fi hotspot  which may compromise your camera’s security.
Also create a strong  password on your phone or mobile device – To make sure that you have  seamless protection while using your IP camera, you should also create a  strong password on your phone or mobile device.

Conclusion:

Learning about the available security features and implementing the  previous steps in order to protect your IP security cameras against  hackers will help safeguard your privacy. By diligently observing these  tips, you can avoid a situation where your camera is compromised and  ensure the smooth operation of your security system.
