The rising incidents of protectors allegedly turning perpetrators are of grave apprehension today. The recent assault of a woman by a security guard in her apartment in Chennai is an addition to the number. The profession and entire business of guarding were based on trust and human factors that kept people confident in the presence of a guard. These occurrences that precisely amount to breach of trust will devalue them and bring undesirable bearings to the industry. The cause calls for an urgent attention by all stakeholders – the Government, the industry and the enforcement agencies. The PSAR Act 2005 provisions to hold the employer accountable for an offence committed by its employee, which is neither reasonable nor practical for the industry to uphold. However, the industry needs to take responsible steps to preserve the value of the business. This is the time of integrated security deployment, and a concerted enforcement thereof is necessary to produce a sustained result. Proper verification, adequate training, value education and designed deployment of personnel at each hierarchy are a must to keep the business going in a respectable way.

On the same lines, Home Minister Rajnath Singh emphasized that detection is the most effective deterrent against crime, and forensics is a key factor in criminal investigation. He asked the police to acquaint themselves to the latest technologies. The Government is adding more forensic laboratories, and with the CCTNS to be fully operational soon their capabilities would be enhanced. The Government has also decided to establish a cybercrime reporting portal to report cybercrimes against women, and a cybercrime laboratory to stop crimes against women and children.

Corruption Perceptions Index 2017 Shows High Corruption Burden in More Than Two-Thirds of Countries India Stands on Place 40 Analysis of results from Transparency International finds crackdowns on NGOs and media are associated with higher levels of corruption
n index recently released by Transparency International, th which marks its 25 anniversary this year, reveals some disturbing information. Despite attempts to combat corruption around the world, the majority of countries are moving too slowly in their efforts. While stemming the tide against corruption takes time, in the last six years many countries have still made little to no progress. Even more alarming, further analysis of the index results indicates that countries with the lowest protections for press and nongovernmental organisations (NGOs) also tend to have the worst rates of corruption. The index, which ranks 180 countries and territories by their perceived levels of public sector corruption according to experts and business people, uses a scale of zero to 100, where zero is highly corrupt and 100 is very clean. This year, the index found that more than two-thirds of countries score below 50, with an average score of 43. Over the last six years, several countries significantly improved their CPI score, including Côte d’Ivoire, Senegal and the United Kingdom, while several countries declined including Syria, Yemen and Australia. 16
This year, New Zealand and Denmark rank highest with scores of 89 and 88 respectively. Syria, South Sudan and Somalia rank lowest with scores of 14, 12 and 9 respectively. The best performing region is Western Europe with an average score of 66. The worst performing regions are Sub-Saharan Africa (average score 32) and Eastern Europe and Central Asia (average score 34).
Every week a journalist is killed in a highly corrupt country
nalysis of the index results by Transparency International further examined the relationship between corruption levels, the protection of journalistic freedoms and engagement of civil society. It found that almost all journalists killed since 2012 were killed in corrupt countries. “No activist or reporter should have to fear for their lives when speaking out against corruption,” said Patricia Moreira, Managing Director of Transparency International, “Given current crackdowns on both civil society and the media worldwide, we need to do more to protect those who speak up.” The analysis, which incorporates data from the Committee to Protect SecurityLink India ■ March 2018
Journalists, shows that in the last six years, more than 9 out of 10 journalists were killed in countries that score 45 or less on the Corruption Perceptions Index. This means that, on average, every week at least one journalist is killed in a country that is highly corrupt. In addition, one in five journalists that died were covering a story about corruption. Sadly, justice was never served in the majority of these cases. The efforts of Transparency International and its first-hand experience working with more than 100 chapters worldwide confirm close linkages between corruption and freedom of the press. For example, in Brazil, which scored 37 on this year’s index, 20 journalists died in the last six years. Targeted for their investigations into local government corruption and drug-related crime, among other issues, reporters in Brazil risk their lives everyday by simply doing their jobs.
Corruption linked to shrinking space for civil society
ransparency International also looked at the relationship between corruption levels and the freedom with which civic organisations are able to operate and influence public policy.
The analysis, which incorporates data from the World Justice Project, shows that most countries that score low for civil liberties also tend to score high for corruption. “Smear campaigns, harassment, lawsuits and bureaucratic red tape are all tools used by certain governments in an effort to quiet those who drive anti-corruption efforts,” said Moreira, “We’re calling on those governments that hide behind restrictive laws to roll them back immediately and allow for greater civic participation.” Hungary, which saw a ten-point decrease in the index over the last six years, moving from 55 in 2012 to 45 in 2017, is one of the most alarming examples of shrinking civil society space in Eastern Europe. If enacted, recent draft legislation in Hungary threatens
to restrict NGOs and revoke their charitable status. This would have disastrous implications for many civil society groups already experiencing the constraining effects of a previous law that stigmatises NGOs based on their funding structures. “CPI results correlate not only with the attacks on press freedom and the reduction of space for civil society organizations,” said Delia Ferreira Rubio, Chair of Transparency International, “High levels of corruption also correlate with weak rule of law, lack of access to information, governmental control over social media and reduced citizens’ participation. In fact, what is at stake is the very essence of democracy and freedom.” India appears at the 40th position of CPI. SecurityLink India ■ March 2018
About the corruptions perceptions index
ince its inception in 1995, the Corruption Perceptions Index, Transparency International’s flagship publication, is the leading global indicator of public sector corruption. The index offers an annual snapshot of the relative degree of corruption by ranking countries from all over the globe. Their latest analysis, which looks at the relationship between corruption and freedom of the press, association and expression, uses statistics collected by the Committee to Protect Journalists, Reporters without Borders, the Varieties of Democracy Project and the World Justice Project. 17
Indoor Navigation to Connected Building Occupant App As demonstrated in the Minneapolis Skyway System, new Honeywell Vector Occupant App lets users easily navigate a building and rate spaces to promote improved comfort using Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity
oneywell has recently added new capabilities to the Honeywell Vector Occupant App that give occupants more control over their experiences within a building with the swipe of a screen. The most significant new feature is indoor navigation, which uses GPSlike technology to help users find their way around complex buildings that are difficult to navigate without directions. The benefits of the indoor navigation feature have been demonstrated in the Minneapolis Skyway System, a complex interlinked network of enclosed pedestrian walkways spanning 80 city blocks. The walkways protect Minnesotans from the harsh winter elements and summer humidity, allowing them to comfortably walk between more than 30 buildings
in downtown Minneapolis. “For anyone who’s not a local, and for even some who are, finding your way around the skyway system can be a big challenge,” said Steve Cramer, President and CEO, Minneapolis Downtown Council, “With our initial use of the Honeywell Vector Occupant App, we’ve seen an immediate impact. The interactive map makes it really easy and intuitive to know exactly where you’re going, and how to get there.” In addition to the indoor navigation feature, the app also now includes a location-based feature to rate spaces, allowing those within a building to highlight comfort issues to building staff for quick resolution. Both features combine the convenience of today’s mobile devic-
es with Internet of Things (IoT) building connectivity to help improve a user’s experience inside a building. “Much of a building’s success hinges on how happy and satisfied its occupants are. They’re the lifeblood of an organization, and their experience within a building is what keeps them coming back,” said Aseem Joshi, Country General Manager, Honeywell Building Solutions, India, “The Honeywell Vector Occupant App has given users more power to shape their building experiences from their smartphones. Now, we’re adding even more features to deepen the connections between occupants and the spaces around them so they can be as comfortable as possible, and can more easily and efficiently move about a building.”
nabled by strategic partner Insiteo’s indoor location solution for smart buildings, the indoor navigation feature offers accurate indoor location, mapping, routing, presence, proximity notifications and analytics – all embedded into an integrated platform. Backed by location technology installed within a facility and software, the app’s indoor navigation provides easy-to-use way finding, with turn-by-turn voice assistance and location accuracy up to five feet. The app promotes better 18

collaboration and improved safety via its ‘share my location’ feature, which gives users a way to more easily find each other in a building. For building owners and managers, in addition to promoting occupant satisfaction, the app also provides insights into foot traffic patterns, which building personnel can use to better inform measures like messaging placement to better serve their occupants.
pability, which lets users raise comfort issues with building personnel for resolution. Building owners and managers can view ratings and feedback on dashboards to pinpoint where building spaces need attention and improvements. They can also visualize longer-term trends and space rankings to uncover patterns and improvement opportunities to promote occupant comfort, satisfaction and productivity.

DDS Protocol Analysis Software Announces its latest Protocol Analyzer for Digital Data Service (DDS)
n late 1970s to late 1980s, ATT offered a pure private line digital data service called Dataphone Digital Service, or DDS. Supported rates of 2.4, 4.8, 9.6, and 19.2 were standard with higher rates such as 56kbps; and nx56kbps also possible but rarely. These circuits although legacy, are still quite common today – because they really work. Specialized channel cards called OCU-DP (Office Channel Unit Data Port) are connected to standard CSU/ DSUs with datacomm interfaces. Both synchronous and asynchronous data is formatted and fit cleanly into a 64kbps time-slot (by repeating the data bits or bytes). The bit repetition had the added advantage of providing error correction and thus better performance. The channel data is then inserted into time-slots of a standard T1. In this manner many data circuits can be packed into a private line T1.” “GL supports non-intrusive monitoring and analysis of DDS frames using T1 Analyzer hardware. The captured data can be decoded and analysed by GL’s DDS Protocol Analyzer,” Vijay Kulkarni, the CEO of the company said, “Non-intrusive TAPs are used to passively duplicate the signal between two end points on a network link without disturbing the actual network activity. GL’s T1 Analyzer hardware can be used with RJ48 Y Bridge – splits one RJ48 into two complete and non-intrusively tap and capture the DDS frames on a T1 line.” He added, “The DDS data is formatted into frames separated by one or more bytes. The data channel may utilize multiple, all or a fractional timeslot of the T1 line. Also, there may be multiple data channels within the T1 line. The captured data is analyzed using GL’s DDS Protocol Analyzer.”

NVR for IP Cameras A
network video recorder (NVR) is primarily used to record the video streams of cameras. In medium and large scale enterprises where a huge number of cameras are installed, it becomes a necessity to incorporate a network of NVRs. It provides a systematic log of various camera video recordings and the space required to store the same. However, with the advancement in technology, NVRs are now able to assist or perform many other functions which enhance the security and ease of operation. Some of these features are unique with respect to IP NVR system, while some are found in most of the NVRs produced these days. Matrix NVRs hold one of the unique features called Cascading that eliminates the need of a server to operate CMS (Centralized Management System) as it works on client-server architecture where each NVR is divided into two parts, client and server. The client of one NVR can communicate with the other oneâ€™s server and vice versa. Therefore, each network video
recorder can supervise and interface with several other NVRs, bypassing the need of a server to do the same, which makes this solution very cost-effective. For example, if multiple NVRs exist in a network, they can still be governed from one of them locally. A single device can act as the server (or a master device) and can control 19 other client (or slave) NVRs. Similarly, there can be multiple master devices as well, monitoring various sets of other (slave) NVRs. Finally, the master device can be directly connected to a screen and output from all slave NVRs can be monitored. One of the major concerns of an IP NVR manufacturer is the storage space to store the recordings. Required storage capacity is determined by the number of factors such as IP cameras in the network, resolution, type of recording and retention duration. If many cameras are connected, optimizing storage becomes indispensable. To resolve this problem, following three features in a NVR come in handy:
SecurityLink India â– March 2018
Motion based recording: There are instances when there is no motion at all but are still recorded, hogging storage space unnecessarily. With motion based recording enabled, the NVR stops recording when there is no motion. Therefore, the storage space is utilized for only those recordings in which motion has been observed. Adaptive recording: According to Indian Government policies for public areas, it is mandatory to record video streams persistently, irrespective of motion. To approach this requirement, NVRs have the option of adaptive recording, in which the number of frames per second change, adapting to the motion. This means, when there is no motion the NVR for IP cameras will still record, but with less frames as compared to when there is motion. Adaptive recording can economize storage space by as much as 50%. Camera-wise recording retention: Each area in an industry fulfils a unique purpose and thus, the priority of camera recordings vary. Camera-wise recording retention provides flexibility to configure the number of days for retaining recordings based on the predominance of a camera and the area where it is installed. For example, recording retention for canteen can be set to 15 days, that of reception area, to 30 days while for the parking area recording retention can be set to 40 days. These are some of the many features that NVRs with modern technology come equipped with. There are, however, still a large amount of functions that a NVR can perform.

Reducing False Alarms with Deep Learning Ashish P. Dhakan – MD & CEO, Prama Hikvision
he Deep Learning phenomenon continues to excite the IT world, with computing power now at the level where it can be properly used in practical applications. Hikvision has been at the forefront of applying the technology in the surveillance industry and beyond, and has already released its first set of products that harness the power of artificial intelligence (AI).
The concept of deep learning takes inspiration from the way the human brain works. Our brains can be seen as a very complex deep learning model. Brain neural networks comprise billions of interconnected neurons; deep learning simulates this structure. These multi-layer networks can collect information and perform corresponding actions according to an analysis of that information.
In the past two years, the technology has excelled in speech recognition, computer vision, voice translation and much more. It has even surpassed human capabilities in the areas of facial verification and image classification, and hence has been highly regarded in the field of video surveillance in the security industry. Its ability to enhance the recognition of human beings – for example, distinguishing them from animals – makes the technology a great addition to the security arsenal. This is especially relevant in a world where false alarms account for 94%-99% of all alarms, according to police and fire service statistics.
How deep learning works
eep learning is intrinsically different from other algorithms. The way it solves the insufficiencies of tradi-
●● Deeper Intelligence. Deeper Surveillance ●● Hikvision Deep Learning solutions are available at three levels: ●● DeepinView camera can conduct target tracking, grading and capturing when an alarm is triggered. ●● ‘Traditional’ IP camera using a DeepinMind NVR will add the function of searching intelligently by picture, saving time on searching for targets compared with a regular NVR. ●● DeepinView camera and a DeepinMind NVR delivers a full power solution, with the camera sending the information to the NVR, which can then analyse it. This accelerates recording and false alarm filtering. 28

tional algorithms is encompassed in the following aspects. The algorithmic model for deep learning has a much deeper structure than the traditional algorithms. Sometimes, the number of layers can reach over a hundred, enabling it to process large amounts of data in complex classifications. Deep learning is very similar to the human learning process, and has a layer-by-layer feature-abstraction process. Each layer will have different ‘weighting,’ and this weighting reflects on what was learnt about the images’ ‘components.’ The higher the layer level, the more specific the components are. Just like the human brain, an original signal in deep learning passes through layers of processing; next, it takes a partial understanding (shallow) to an overall abstraction (deep) where it can perceive the object. Deep learning does not require manual intervention, but relies on a computer to extract features by itself. This way, it is able to extract as many features from
the target as possible, including abstract features that are difficult or impossible to describe. The more are the features the more accurate the recognition and classification will be. Some of the most direct benefits that deep learning algorithms can bring include achieving comparable or even better-than-human pattern recognition accuracy, strong anti-interference capabilities, and the ability to classify and recognize thousands of features.
Challenges of existing systems
onventional surveillance systems, mostly detect moving targets, without further analysis. Even smart IP cameras can only map individual points on a shape one by one, making it difficult to calibrate some features (e.g., forehead or cheek), thus decreasing accuracy. For perimeter security, for example, other technologies can be (and are) used to provide more comprehensive security, but they all have their downsides. Infra-
SecurityLink India ■ March 2018
red emission detectors can be ‘jumped over’ but are also prone to false alarms caused by animals. Electronic fences can be a safety hazard, and are limited in certain areas. Some of these solutions can also be expensive and complicated to install. An object such as animals, leaves, or even light can cause false alarms, so being able to identify the presence of a human shape really improves the accuracy of perimeter VCA functions. Frequent false alarms are always an issue for endusers, who need to spend time to investigate each one, potentially delaying any necessary response and generally affecting efficiency. Imagine, for example, a scenario where it’s relatively quiet – a location at night where there are few cars and people around. Even here, there could be 50 false alarms in a night. Assuming it takes 2-3 minutes to check out a false alarm, and that just 3 out of the 50 warrant more attention – say 15 minutes each, a guard either needs to check the system
and look back at the alert, or someone needs to be dispatched to the location and look around, checking if anyone has indeed ‘entered without permission.’ In most organizations, these would need to be reported/ recorded too, adding to the overall time spent on this ‘false alarm.’ So, those 50 false alarms could cost more than two hours each night of wasted time in that scenario. Deep learning, however, makes a big difference. With a large amount of good quality data from the cameras and other sources, like the Hikvision Research Institute, and over a hundred data cleaning team members to label the video images, sample data with millions of categories within the industry have been accumulated. With this large amount of quality training data, human, vehicle, and object pattern recognition models become more and more accurate for video surveillance use. Based on a series of experiments, the recognition accuracy of solutions using the deep learning algorithm increased accuracy by 38% – applying this to the previous example, that’s a saving of nearly one hour each night. This makes deep learning technology a great advantage in a perimeter security solution,
with much more accurate line crossing, intrusion, entrance and exit detection.
he value of deep learning technology stretches further than traditional security. For example, tracking movement patterns of individuals can see if they are ‘loitering’ and a potential threat in the future. A threshold could be set to five meters radius of movement, or ten seconds of staying in the same place. If the person passes either threshold, an alarm could be triggered. The solution tracks the individual and compares this behaviour to a database to see if it recognizes a pattern. Another application would be in a scenario where ‘falling down’ could be a threat, like an elderly care home. If
SecurityLink India ■ March 2018
a height threshold was set at 0.5m and duration time 10 seconds, the solution would be able to see a person falling down (as they go below 0.5m) and might be in trouble (if they ‘stay down’ for longer than 10 seconds). The solution uses the parameters set to compare with its database and raise an alarm. With features and benefits like these, it’s easy to see how many smart applications could be catered for by deep learning technology. To sum up 10,000-strong R&D Centre is pushing the boundaries of surveillance solutions and bringing even more benefits to them. Artificial intelligence has massive potential, and Hikvision is always exploring new ways to apply this exciting technology throughout the security industry and beyond.

here are two types of hacking or unauthorized access to accounts. The first involves password cracking tools, but most organizations have cyber security features in place to prevent these attacks. However, it’s the second type of attack that can cripple any organization or person’s accounts and databases, and that is a social engineering attack. Social engineers are criminals who take advantage of human behaviour to pull off an online scam or hacking attack. Successful social engineers are confident and in complete control of the situation. Social engineers generally use two techniques – one is by simple obser-
Social engineers are criminals who take advantage of human behaviour to pull off an online scam or hacking attack. Successful social engineers are confident and in complete control of the situation 32
vation while the other is the proactive effort. In the first case, the social engineer simply observes a person’s social networking profiles such as Linkedin profiles etc., and all other data available about him. Most people have passwords that they can easily remember, and for that they use the words that are closely related to them. People share every detail of their lives on social networking sites including their date of birth, favourite colour, pet’s name and everything possibly related to them. This information is freely available. This makes it pretty easy for the hackers/ social engineers to guess passwords in such a scenario and fix it. It’s always advisable to be discrete with respect to the data shared on social media. Such data is also collected by the online questionnaires and market research forms that people request to fill in public places. In the second case, the attack is pre-planned and a complete checklist is made of the person or companies including likes and dislikes, passions, hobbies and professional credentials etc. The second stage of physical access now comes into the picture. For SecurityLink India ■ March 2018
example, three income tax officials turn up at your office for an inspection along with relevant badges and check all the office computers and documents. In the process they lodge key loggers into your computers, whereby they will receive an email of every key stroke made on the computers, thereby giving out your passwords and confidential data. An example of this kind of attack would be where a social engineer researches about a person let’s say Mr. A, and collects that the person is fond of foreign holidays. The social engineer calls up this person as the authorized representative from a reputed travel agency and offers a mind-blowing holiday package. He asks Mr. A the version of PDF reader he is using on his laptop. The conversation is very friendly and inspires trust in the mind of Mr. A. The social engineer sends the holiday proposal in a PDF format which is not compatible with the PDF reader installed by Mr. A, and along with the proposal sends a compatible PDF reader for Mr. A to download and read the proposal. The PDF reader has malware attached that gives the social engineer access into Mr. A’s computer.
Another example of this type of social engineering attack is where a very pretty woman, who is a journalist, goes to meet the system administrator of a big company, to get his opinion on cyber security. She goes easy and flirts with him and after taking his opinion pushes off. In the course she ‘accidently’ leaves her pen drive behind with him. The ensuing impact of the girl would make him curious to know more about her and hence he accesses her pen drive. The pen drive is infected with key logger and Trojan malware, which make the company’s networks very vulnerable. The 4 basic principles which most social engineers follow are: ●● They project confidence: They do not sneak around, they proactively approach people and draw attention towards themselves. ●● They give you something: Probably just a small favor which creates trust and a perception of indebtedness. ●● They use humor as that is one tool which is endearing and disarming. ●● They make a request and offer a reason and research shows people are likely to respond to any reasoned request. Attacks by social engineers are offences in India under Section 43 of the Information Technology Act, 2000. This section reads as under: Penalty and compensation for damage to computer, computer system etc. If any person without the permission of the owner or any other person who is in-charge; a. Accesses or secures access to such computer, computer system or computer networkor computer resource; b. Downloads, copies or extracts any

A victim is required to make a Complaint in the prescribed format along with the applicable fees to The Adjudicating Officer, Information Technology Act, 2000. The fees are calculated in accordance with the damages claimed. Under the provisions of the Rules for the conduct of Adjudicating Proceedings under the Information Technology Act, 2000, the Adjudicating officer shall decide every application in 4 months and the whole matter in 6 months. The biggest weakness lies not in computer systems, but lies in human nature. Cyber criminals using social engineering techniques are experts in manipulation of the mind and know very well the weaknesses of human nature being greedy, lusty, gullible etc. It is extremely important to educate employees about these kinds of attacks as the weak link may not be your cyber security, but an unknowing employee himself. 33
Smart IoT Industrial Park Brings Productivity & Quality to a New Level
By Balasubramanian Jayam – Head of Marketing (India & SAARC), Dahua Technology Co., Ltd.
o grasp the current manufacturing trends and seize the Zeitgeist of Industry 4.0, Dahua Technology has put to use a new smart IoT industrial park in Hangzhou. Dahua Smart (IoT) Industrial Park occupies in total 512 acres in Fuyang district of Hangzhou, about 20 minutes’ drive from Dahua headquarters, designed to host 6000 staff (by 2017, 4500 people have been working/ living in the 262 acres of phase one
area). With topnotch technologies, personnel, materials and other benefits, Dahua’s smart industrial park will bring productivity and quality to a brand new level.
Faster production & adaption
he automatic production solution based on integrated information system not only grants a higher productivity that significantly
Dahua Smart IoT Industrial Park
SecurityLink India ■ March 2018
shortens the delivery cycle time for Dahua customers, but also a greater flexibility to specialized requests and ever-changing reality. The employment of software such as ERP, PLM, PDM, MES, APS and WMS helps achieve information integration, which, combined with industrial cameras, RFID sensory technologies and automation technologies, can integrate personnel, logistics, works, engineering projects and finance from respective sections of production (preparation, assembly, testing, packaging, inspection, shipment), rendering the whole process visible, traceable and digital. The mounter serves as a good synecdoche to illustrate the incredible efficiency of the whole production system. The concerning highend devices (including mounter, printer, automated optical inspection equipment, Ersa reflow soldering tools etc.) provided by ASM (originally Siemens) achieve a speed among the fastest in the world. According to IPC standard, X4iS, the latest high-speed mounter can process 125,000 components per hour,
or 35 per second. X35 multifunctional mounter can do 54000 components per hour, or 15 per second. A production line in X series can enhance the productivity by 2.7 times while reducing the consumption of energy by 52%, comparing to the original production line in D series under the same conditions. The faster speed also applies to the development of new molding, since Dahua smart industrial park provides the great benefit of internal synergy, allowing the end-to-end vertical supply chain with marketing, R&D and manufacturing efficiently integrated. The advanced organizing system is supported by topnotch equipment such as MAKINO highspeed graphite processing machine, GF CNC, GF WEDM-LS machine, Hexagon 3D Nikon projectors and electronic displays. With a processing accuracy of +/-0.002 to +/-0.005mm, while also supporting CAD/ CAM/ CAE collaborative development and simultaneous manufacturing, these machines enable Dahua to develop new mechanical molding in as short as 7 days. By far, this developing system has already produced high precision molding for Lechange Robots, monitoring cameras in TP1-TC6 series, G20 intelligent head-gears, smoke alarm for fire detectors etc., all of which are proving the effectiveness of the system in shortening the development cycle and keeping the competitive edge with new products in the business.
igher quality saves lots of time and economic costs for clients. Even more importantly, higher
quality results in less likelihood for products to malfunction especially when they are used in critical, notallowed-to-go-wrong situations. Dahua’s products are guaranteed with a higher quality for two reasons – first, Dahua has set a high standard of accuracy in production; second, with a reliability lab at the production end, it has put together an effectively closed loop for quality control in the manufacturing process.
ccuracy has always been one vital index defining the manufacturing ability because it directly sets the limit to quality and range of products to be produced. Again, take the mounter mentioned above for example – it can process components, in metric size, as small as 03015 (0.3x0.15mm), with a +-0.025mm SMD precision (within the 3-stigma range), boasting world leading performance and capable of covering basically all types of components used in the industry. Dahua industrial camera plays an important role in IoT, providing a closed loop for quality control in the manufacturing process, in which all materials, personnel and devices are connected and products are traceable to the specific production line and precise time it got made. Boasting a variety of functions, Dahua industrial cameras are used in different sections of production, enabling automatic assembly, high-precision graphic inspection and product flaw inspection. Through high definition machine vision, Dahua industrial cameras automatically and precisely locate the components, limiting the assembly error to micron level. Equipped with SecurityLink India ■ March 2018
enhanced vision and intelligent analytics algorithm, the industrial camera can spontaneously detect and recognize flaws in the performance and outlook of products, thus promising not only the volume of cameras production but also the steady quality of each and every one of them.
eliability must be put to test, in R&D as well as in manufacturing process. The reliability lab at the production end serves to assure quality by randomly taking products from production lines and put them into reliability tests simulating falling, high/ low temperature, worn-out conditions, which are conducted by industry leading testing equipment in the lab. Thus what’s conceived in R&D is confirmed from the production line, the synergy of both ends promising better products (for common use or specialized needs). This lab is also responsible for testing all the raw materials. Thanks to the aforementioned information integration, all tests are automatically conducted, recorded and traceable. In conclusion, Dahua Smart (IoT) Industrial Park is endowed with the latest and world leading manufacturing equipment/ system boasting high level automation and intelligence, which is essential to satisfy the ever higher demands from clients in terms of delivery time, specialized use and quality. There is still great potential to this new smart industrial park. It is literally only in its phase one, and in the future phase, it is expected to be more intelligent, to realize clientcentered flexible production and to enable a safer society and smarter living. 35
Predictions in Id Technology
Top trends that are driving more intelligent, connected experiences in 2018
ID Global has identified the top trends in the identity technology industry for 2018. The company points towards increased cloud and mobile access adoption, more focus on securing the Internet of Things (IoT), and data analytics as some of the top trends that will take center stage in developing more intelligent, connected experiences this year. “Trusted identities will emerge this year as the fundamental building blocks for organizations to create environments that connect people, places and things,” said Samuel Asarnoj, Senior Vice President, Corporate Strategy & Business Development with HID Global, “The user experience will be redefined by mobile, IoT and cloud technologies, and deliver new capabilities for the future.” HID Global sees five significant trends in 2018 that will influence how organizations leverage the power of trusted identities.
cates in the IoT will draw upon the trusted cloud services to deliver and manage certificates across thousands of devices.
Organizations embracing the benefits of the cloud
017 was the year when mobile access went mainstream and adoption will accelerate even further in 2018. Maturity in mobile solutions and integration into other systems, coupled with mobile’s ability to enhance user convenience, improve operational efficiency and provide higher security will drive accelerated growth for mobile access and mainstream adoption. Card emulation, the NFC mode most coveted for mobile access control, remains reserved exclusive to Apple Pay; this leaves Blue tooth as the communication standard for cross-platform mobile access support. Still, organizations will invest in readers and other infrastructure that supports NFC and BLE to prepare for future possibilities.
ncreased awareness of the cloud’s ease of deployment, flexibility, connectivity options and productivity benefits will escalate adoption. Access control cloud platforms with APIs and SDKs will fuel new software solutions that expand choices for organizations to get the most out of their investments. Cloud-based card issuance will drive adoption due to its simplicity, security and cost structure, while governments increasingly investigate how printed IDs can be complemented by cloud-issued mobile citizen IDs. Cloud authentication and credential management will further integrate mobile devices, tokens, cards and machineto-machine endpoints. And digital certifi36

igital certificates will become a core component for adding trust in the IoT by issuing unique digital IDs to printers and encoders, mobile phones, tablets, video cameras and building automation systems, plus a broader range of things like connected cars and medical devices. Apple iOS 11 ‘read’ support of NFC will fuel adoption of IoT-based applications such as brand protection, customer loyalty programs and other use cases that will further drive the need to enhance security in the IoT.
Mobile access reaches tipping point for mass market adoption
SecurityLink India ■ March 2018
Convergence of physical and digital security
he concept of physical identity & access management (PIAM) will drive convergence of physical and digital security to a single credential, putting identity at the center of all use cases. Government, finance, energy and other regulated markets will emerge as the forerunners using these solutions for secure access to buildings, email, websites and VPN. The new converged identity models that use cloud authentication and mobile devices are also emerging such as the ability to verify a person’s presence at a location, mobile IDs that validate physical citizen IDs, and smart cards that authenticate users to enterprise resources.
Data analytics will drive risk-based intelligence for predictive models and new capabilities
evices, access control systems, IoT applications and other solutions connected to the cloud will provide robust data for advanced analytics. Insights from these analytics can be used to optimize workflow solutions and provide more seamless access for end users. Predictive analytics and biometrics will play a crucial role in people-centric security and address employee demands for workplaces to deliver premium, more individualized services. Analytics will also help reduce downtime in the enterprise, spur factory automation and improve compliance via condition monitoring that is based on real-time location and sensing solutions.
Security Considerations for Code Signing R
ecent security-related incidents indicate the need for a secure software supply chain to protect software products (also referred to as code) during the development, build, distribution, and maintenance phases. Of particular concern is provisioning and updating software that plays a critical role in platform security. A wide range of software products including firmware, operating systems, mobile applications, and application container images must be distributed and updated in a secure and automatic way to prevent forgery and tampering. An effective and common method of protecting software is to apply a digital signature to the code. Digitally signing code provides both data integrity to prove that the code was not modified, and source authentication to identify who was in control of the code at the time it was signed. When the recipient verifies the signature, he is assured that the code came from the source that signed it, and that it has not been modified in transit.
NIST plans to develop further guidance to help organizations evaluating, deploying or managing code signing systems. The high-level recommendations described in this document are expected to form the basis for more detailed recommended practices for code signing 38
This white paper targets software developers and product vendors who are implementing a code signing system or reviewing the security of an existing system, with the goal of achieving improved security and customer confidence in code authenticity and integrity. System integrators and administrators who are concerned about the trustworthiness of the applications that are installed and run on their systems will learn the properties they should expect from a code signing solution to protect their software supply chain. This white paper describes features and architectural relationships of typical code signing solutions that are widely deployed today. It defines code signing use cases and identifies some security problems that can arise when applying code signing solutions to those use cases. Finally, it provides recommendations for avoiding those problems, and resources for more information. Properly applied, these recommendations will help to ensure that the software supply chain is resistant to attack. NIST plans to develop further guidance to help organizations evaluating, deploying or managing code signing systems. The high-level recommendations described in this document are expected to form the basis for more detailed recommended practices for code signing.
The basics of code signing
his section provides high-level technical details about how this process
SecurityLink India ■ March 2018
works. There are multiple roles in the process: developer, signer and verifier.
he developer is the entity responsible for writing, building, and/ or submitting the code that will be signed. This entity maintains a secure development environment, including the source code repository, and will submit code to the signer after it has completed the organization’s software development and testing processes.
he signer is the entity responsible for managing the keys used to sign software. This role may be performed by the same organization that developed or built the software, or by an independent party in a position to vouch for the source of the code. The signer generates the code signing private/ public key pair on a device that is sufficiently protected, as the security of this process relies upon the protection of the private key. In many cases, the signer then provides the public key to a certification authority (CA) through a certificate signing request. The CA will confirm the signer’s identity and provides a signed certificate that ties the signer to the provided public key. Anyone can use the public key associated with this certificate to validate the authenticity and integrity of code signed with this key pair. If no CA is used, the public key must instead be distributed using a trusted, out-of-band mechanism. The signer ensures through techni-
cal and procedural controls that only authorized code is signed. When code is submitted by developers for signing, the signer verifies their identities and their authority to request a signature. The signer may also take additional steps to verify the code is trustworthy. Ultimately, two or more trusted agents of the code signing system may be needed to approve the request and generate a digital signature. In some cases, the signed code may also be provided to a time stamp authority to indicate when the code was signed.
he verifier is responsible for validating signatures on signed code. The verifier may be a software component provided by the same developer as the signed code (e.g., for a signed firmware update), or it may be a shared component provided by the platform (e.g., the operating system).
he code signing architecture is composed of a set of logical components that are responsible for different aspects of the code signing process. The code signing/ verifying architecture rep-
resented in Figure 1 potentially has four distinct components: the code signing system (CSS), the certification authority (CA), the time stamp authority (TSA), and the verifier(s).
Code signing system (CSS)
he first component, the CSS, receives code submitted for signing, authenticates and authorizes the submitter, and generates the signature. To generate these signatures the CSS has one or more private signing keys, which need to be carefully protected from extraction or unauthorized use.
Certification authority (CA)
ypically, a CSS utilizes a CA to enable authenticating the identities of signers. CAs issue certificates to signers in accordance with certificate policies, which specify the security controls and practices the CA follows when issuing certificates, and impose requirements on the subjects of the certificates. NIST Interagency Report 7924 is a reference certificate policy that specifies most of the requirements for a CA that issues code signing certificates. There are also industry groups such as the CA/ Browser Forum and the CA Security Council,
that have published requirements documents for the issuance of code signing certificates
Time stamp authority (TSA)
ome code signing architectures use a TSA to demonstrate when a particular piece of code was signed. When a TSA is used, signatures are sent to the TSA which applies its own signature and signing time to the package. The TSA operates independently from the CSS and keeps its clock synchronized to an authoritative time source. This allows an entity verifying code to accept the signature on the code as valid if the signing key was valid at the time the code was signed, even if the key has already expired at the time of verification or the key was compromised sometime after the code was signed.
erifiers are responsible for validating the signature and any certificates and time stamps used by the signers. The verifiers also manage any trust anchors that are used to validate certificates. Either the signer or an independent party may be responsible for the verification component.
critical aspect of managing the verification component is the management of trust anchors that are used to validate signatures, usually by verifying code signing certificates. Trust anchors are data objects, generally public keys, that are installed and securely stored on the verifying platform. The trustworthiness of a trust anchor is based on the method of its installation, storage and management. Trust anchors are generally not used to verify code directly, but are typically
SecurityLink India â– March 2018
public keys of root CAs that sign over certificates of code-signing-CAs. This provides a means to recover from incidents resulting in the theft of loss of a private key owned by individual code-signingCAs or code signers. While trust anchors must be stored in a protected manner, it is not advisable that trust anchors be permanent – if the corresponding private key were compromised, this would render the platform vulnerable without a means to remediate that vulnerability.
Code signing use cases
he organization establishes a policy that defines the developer(s) authorized to submit code to be signed by the CSS at particular stages of development. The implementation of the system is dependent on the use case for the CSS. This section describes four example use cases: firmware signing, driver signing, trusted application stores, and application software signing. Please note that these examples are for illustrative purposes; they neither reflect all instantiations of each use case nor are they comprehensive of all code signing use cases.
ecure distribution of firmware is an example of a software supply chain where all aspects of the code signing activity – software development, authorization of the code to be signed, administration of the CSS, and development of the verifier – are typically under the control of a single organization. A typical work flow includes a team of developers who track contributions to the project in a version control system before the code is passed along to a build system. During development, the CSS might sign nonproduction versions with development or test keys. These signatures would be used in testing but would not be used for 40
The driver developers do not obtain their own code signing keys and certificates. Instead, they submit their code to the central trusted authority (e.g., the OS vendor or OEM), who verifies the identity of the developer and provides a signature for the submitted driver verifying code in fielded products. When the code is ready to be shipped, the developers submit it for signing. An authorized approver (or multiple approvers) examine the code per organization policy and submit the code, along with an approval. The CSS inspects the package (code, approvals and metadata) to determine whether all requirements are met. The package is then signed with a production key. This key can be unique per project. All production keys are centrally held, likely in a hardware security module (HSM). Each corresponding public key is securely installed in the verifier component on the platform for which the firmware is intended.
evice drivers are privileged processes that run close to a computer’s system kernel, controlling and communicating with hardware components. A typical personal computer will have several hardware devices with associated drivers. While drivers are typically developed by the associated hardware vendor, all other aspects of the code signing activity are still typically controlled by a central authority. While details vary SecurityLink India ■ March 2018
from platform to platform, device drivers often are signed by a central, preconfigured trusted authority. For operating system (OS) drivers, the approval and signing process is often performed by the OS vendor. Firmware-level drivers (e.g., unified extensible firmware interface (UEFI) drivers) often rely on a central, third-party signing service, with the trust anchor managed by the original equipment manufacturer (OEM). In this example, the driver developers do not obtain their own code signing keys and certificates. Instead, they submit their code to the central trusted authority (e.g., the OS vendor or OEM), who verifies the identity of the developer and provides a signature for the submitted driver. If a driver is later discovered to be untrustworthy or malicious, the trusted authority has mechanisms to revoke the particular signature or signatures issued to that developer.
Trusted application stores
odern computing devices use application stores to distribute signed applications (apps) to users including software developed by third parties. Different platforms perform code signing in different ways, but in most cases, application stores are operated by the OS or platform vendor to distribute only those applications that have undergone some level of vetting based on a defined policy. While individual developers may have their own signing keys, either for development purposes or to authenticate to the store, the private keys used to sign applications are under the control of the store, which serves at the CSS. Developers submit their applications to the store, and their identities are verified before the apps undergo vetting. If everything is in order, the store signs the app and publishes it, making it available for download.
Devices can be configured to only install apps that have been signed by a key controlled by the application store.
Application software signing
perating systems generally include support for applications developed and distributed by independent vendors. Depending on the configuration of the system, a valid code signature may be a prerequisite to installation, or the OS may grant access to protected system resources only to signed applications. For these signatures to be accepted by the OS, application developers must obtain a code signing certificate from a CA that is trusted by the OS vendor. The OS vendor may operate a CA for this purpose, or it may partner with commercial CAs to provide this service. The developer generates a code signing key pair, and requests a public-key certificate from the CA. The CA verifies the identity of the developer before issuing the certificate. The developer uses its private key to sign any applications it develops for that OS. These signatures establish the identity of the developer, and allow the OS to verify that the application has not been tampered with. The developer may also obtain time stamps from a TSA so that the OS will be able to verify the signatures even after the corresponding certificate has expired. The platform OS can determine the provenance of the application. The system administrator or user may be asked to decide whether to trust code from the developer, since the OS vendor does not vet the application. The trusted CA(s) may, however, aid the user by refusing to issue certificates to developers who are known to have signed malicious code in the past.
ď ˝ If code needs to be signed regularly as part of development, create a physically or logically distinct CSS that will be used during development and not used for signing production code. As part of this separation, development keys should not chain back to the same root keys that the production keys do ď ž Threats to the CSS
his section enumerates some potential threats to the CSS. Theft of private signing key: Private signing keys that are not properly protected are at risk of theft, allowing a successful attacker to sign arbitrary code. Limited revocation mechanisms in some systems that rely on code signing exacerbate this threat. Issuance of unauthorized code signing certificates: Weak protections on CA private keys used to issue code signing certificates, or weak vetting procedures used to issue those certificates, could allow an attacker to obtain one or more unauthorized code signing certificates. Misplaced trust in certificates or keys: Verifiers could trust certificates or keys for code signing that were never intended to be used for code signing or that otherwise should not be trusted to sign code from a particular source. In some cases, verifiers may allow users to extend trust to untrustworthy certificates or signers. Signing of unauthorized or malicious code: Code signing procedures could allow malicious or unauthorized code to be inadvertently signed, either as the result of a legitimate mistake, poor governance controls, an insider attack or a successful intrusion into software/ firmware development or code signing systems. Similarly, intrusions into deSecurityLink India â– March 2018
velopment systems or the code signing infrastructure itself, could result in malicious code being signed. Use of insecure cryptography: Use of weak or insecure cryptographic algorithms or key generation methods could allow cryptanalytic or brute-force attacks to recover private keys or obtain fraudulent certificates. Future developments such as new cryptanalysis, implementation vulnerabilities, or the development of a cryptographically-significant quantum computer, could render a previously-deployed system insecure.
his section presents recommendations for improving the security of the software supply chain by protecting the code during the development, build, distribution, and maintenance phases. Identify and authenticate (I&A) trusted users: Implement an I&A scheme that adequately identifies the users who have the ability to sign code or submit code to be signed. Authorize trusted users: Determine who has authorization to submit code for signature. Maintain and regularly review/ audit a list that specifies who can submit code and what code they can submit (e.g., for what projects they can submit). Consider requiring two people to approve code for signing and/ or the use of multi-factor authentication. 41
Separate roles within the CSS: Separate critical roles for running the CSS and assign them to different people. In particular, separate the administration role of the CSS from the role of authorized submitter of code. Establish policies and procedures for reviewing, vetting and approving code: Signed code reflects an organizationâ€™s acceptance of that firmware or software. Prior to signing code, organizations should review and vet code to ensure it is trustworthy. Organizationâ€™s existing secure software development and build processes should support these procedures. Use strong cryptography: Use a well-designed, tested and maintained cryptographic library, and choose NISTapproved algorithms for hashing and signing. Protect the signing keys: The secrecy of the signing keys must be maintained. They should be isolated on a machine that has minimal applications and connectivity. If possible, the keys should be stored in an HSM with minimal functionality (e.g., signing). Use a separate CSS for development: If code needs to be signed regularly as part of development, create a physically or logically distinct CSS that will be used during development and not used for signing production code. As part of this separation, development keys should not chain back to the same root keys that the production keys do. Isolate and protect the CSS: The CSS is a foundational security system and should be protected as a critical asset. To the greatest extent possible, isolate the CSS from the production network (as well as any external networks). Utilize auditing and periodically review logs: Audit the use of signing keys. Review the logs regularly for anomalous usage of keys. Protect the logs so 42
that a breach of the CSS does not allow past entries of the log to be overwritten. Utilize a reputable CA: If a CA is being utilized to establish trust in the binding of the signer and the public key, then either operate a secure CA or purchase certificates from a reputable CA. If a CA is not being utilized, then trust is established by possession of the private signing key alone. In this case, protection of the signing key is paramount as it cannot be easily updated later. Utilize a reputable time stamp server: If a time stamp server is being utilized to ensure the integrity of the time of code signing, then either operate a secure time stamp server or use the services of a reputable time stamp server. Manage trust anchors: In many cases, the trust anchor can be updated. If this is the case, care should be taken that the trust anchor only changes when properly authorized. It needs to be stored in such a way that it cannot be changed outside of a well-defined update process. Manage code versions: If protection against rollbacks is desired, the version of the code should be signed as part of the metadata in the package, and verified by the verifier during a software update process. The update should proceed only if the supplied code is newer than what is already present on the system. Validate certificates: If a CA is utilized, the verifier must be able to determine that the certificate containing the public signature verification key is valid. It should check that the signature on the certificate is valid and from an authorized CA. Critical fields including the validity period and key usage fields should also be checked. Validate time stamps: If the signed code includes a time stamp, the verifier must be able to determine that the time stamp was signed by a TSA that it trusts, SecurityLink India â– March 2018
particularly if the signature on the code was valid at the time specified in the time stamp but is no longer valid at the time of verification. Validate signatures: The verifier must be able to validate the signature and determine that the public key associated with the signature can be chained back to an authorized signer. Note that in some cases, there will be no CA, and the public key determines authorization. Check certificate revocation: Sometimes certificates need to be revoked before the end of their validity period. The verifier should either be able to check revocation or have a secure mechanism for updating the trust anchors.
his white paper describes the security considerations for a code signing solution to protect the software supply chain. Code signing provides assurance that the software is authentic and has not been tampered with during the development, build, distribution, and maintenance phases, and the verifier can validate these properties at runtime. The use cases dictate the deployment model but the core components of the solution include the CA, the TSA, the CSS, and the verifier.

Three Big Predictions
Sensors in the Security & Surveillance Market The market is expected to reach $12,012.1 million by 2023
he Internet of Things (IoT) is bringing about a new era of connectivity in the digital age, connecting critical business sectors through a network of secure data flow, analytics, and management. It’s also bringing numerous opportunities for sensor participants through security technologies required for remote services and enhanced accessibility of devices. The total sensors market in security and surveillance applications was worth $6,267.9 million in 2016, with image sensors holding the largest market share at 23 percent. The market is expected to reach $12,012.1 million by 2023. North America and EMEA dominate the market, driven by aging infrastructures, but APAC is the fastest growing due to rapid infrastructure development, strong economic growth, and favorable government regulations. However, challenges for sensor manufacturers and suppliers include increased competition, leading to pricing pressures, lack of product differentiation, and lack of common global standards. Frost & Sullivan’s recent analysis, Sensors in Security & Surveillance, Global Forecast to 2023, covers global trends for sensors used in security and surveillance applications across industries such as industrial, commercial, institutional, building automation, infrastructure, and security and defense. The analysis also explores the impact of the Internet of Things (IoT) and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) on security and surveillance.
The growth of IoT is contributing to rapidly evolving security requirements, with the areas of robotics and biometric and RFID sensors offering the greatest opportunities. Robotics is expected to be the future of security and surveillance, with considerable investments in research and development in this space. In addition, the demand for drones and AGVs remains strong, especially in defense, commercial, and institutional spaces. “In commercial and residential applications, biometric recognition used in access control systems is also witnessing a gradual increase in interest,” said Ram Ravi, Industry Analyst, Frost & Sullivan, “In addition, cloud networking, a revolutionary two-way interactive service delivery platform, is expected to create a technological explosion in the homes and buildings services market, particularly in commercial and residential security applications.

Sensors form the physical layer of the IoT architecture; ●● Development of new communication protocols will ensure interoperability and provide standardization, particularly in applications for perimeter security, intrusion detection, and access control systems; and ●● Retail, healthcare, and finance are all expected to offer considerable growth opportunities for sensors in biometrics. 43
Traditional Switch Port Security By Tom Exley – Technical Head, ComNet
ith Cybersecurity becoming an increasingly important factor in designing modern Ethernet networks, ComNet have launched an industry first edge security feature that is both simple, secure and easy to configure and use. The ComNet exclusive Port Guardian feature has the capability to physically disable a port if unauthorized access is detected. The value in Port Guardian comes in situations where network intrusion is attempted by disconnecting an IP addressable device at the edge to connect to the network. When Port Guardian senses this disconnect, an SNMP notification is sent to the head end and the affected port is physically locked out, preventing access. The network administrator can re-enable the port once the threat is eliminated. This feature also thwarts access through ‘Spoofing’ by disabling the port as soon as an interruption is sensed. Layer 2 managed switches can typically implement port security which consists of checking incoming packets for a matching MAC address. If a packet with a valid MAC address is received on a particular port then the switch will allow that packet to pass through the switching fabric of the switch as normal.
MAC = 11:11:11:11:11:11
Only MAC 11:11:11:11:11:11 Allowed on Port 1
If a packet with an invalid MAC source address is received on the switch port then that packet is dropped by the switch and is not allowed to proceed any further and therefore, this provides a basic level of security as only traffic from the user defined MAC address is allowed on that port.
MAC = 22:22:22:22:22:22
Only MAC 11:11:11:11:11:11 Allowed on Port 1
With this method it is therefore possible to easily implement basic port security against a potential intruder from removing the original device and replacing it with a device designed for network intrusion or from cutting the cable that went to the original device and connecting this cable to their own network intrusion device to gain access to the network. This level of protection is common amongst most layer 2 managed switches on the market today and indeed all ComNet managed switches support this capability as standard. This feature is referred to by many names including (but not limited to) the following: ●● Port locking. ●● MAC locking. ●● Port security. ●● MAC filtering.
SecurityLink India ■ March 2018
What’s wrong with traditional switch port security?
he issue with the traditional Layer 2 MAC filtering/ locking as previously described is that it can be defeated with relative ease in a matter of minutes by using readily available software which can artificially alter the MAC address of the sender to match whatever the potential intruder wants. In the example below the intruder will alter the MAC address of their laptop to use the same MAC address of the authorised camera and gain access to the network.
MAC = 22:22:22:22:22:22
Only MAC 11:11:11:11:11:11 Allowed on Port 1
How does port guardian prevent such intrusions?
t the basic level Port Guardian works as a layer 1 protection system so the actual data being sent on the port is not important and the switch does not need to know anything about it. Port Guardian constantly monitors the enabled ports and as soon as it detects that a cable has been unplugged or there is a link down event that port will be immediately disabled and the network administrator notified via an SNMP alert (and optionally by a local contact relay if supported on the particular switch model) to the potential intrusion. MAC = 11:11:11:11:11:11
Only MAC 11:11:11:11:11:11 Allowed on Port 1
Contact Ouput Triggered (optional)
Fiber Optic Uplink To Main Network Port 1 Disabled System Alarm!
How would the intruder know what MAC to spoof?
What happens after Port Guardian locks out a port?
o how would a potential intruder know the MAC address of the camera (in this example) in order to be able to spoof that address from their laptop and gain network access? This could be done in several ways but one simple way could be to use a low cost network tap device so the camera is briefly unplugged and then connected to the tap and then quickly re-connected to the network again. The operator would see video loss for some seconds but would unlikely put this down to a potential intruder if it was even noticed at all.
nce Port Guardian has been triggered on a certain port then that port is in a permanent lock out condition and will appear to be dead to the potential intruder (no LEDs or anything will work on that port). The port will remain in this lock out condition even if the original legitimate device is re-connected. The lock out state can only be cleared by the network administrator through one of 4 possible methods as outlined below: ●● SNMP reset command issued. ●● Reset via Web GUI. ●● Port Guardian reset command issued from the local USB serial port CLI. ●● A contact input is closed (only available on models that have contact inputs). The contact input method is user configurable and is not enabled by default. What about cycling power to the switch? This is another user configurable option. The port lock out states can be set to clear on a power cycle or they can be set to go into lock out condition in the event of a power cycle (this would be the most secure option).
MAC = 11:11:11:11:11:11
Only MAC 11:11:11:11:11:11 Allowed on Port 1
SecurityLink India ■ March 2018
So how can Port Guardian be used in networks?
here are really two distinct ways to use the Port Guardian feature and the correct implementation depends on how secure the location is where your remote ComNet edge switch (with Port Guardian feature) is located. An outline description and visual example of both scenarios follows.
Edge switch in secure location scenario
f the ComNet edge field switch is installed within a secure location then there is no concern about an intruder gaining access to the physical switch itself so one could enable Port Guardian just on the ports where he has edge devices connected that are physically located outside of the secure location and not enable Port Guardian on the uplink port(s) which are part of the secure network. In this scenario one could also set the option to have a power cycle clear any locked out ports as again he would not be as concerned with a potential intruder being able to power cycle the switch itself.
Edge switch in unsecured location scenario
f the ComNet edge field switch is installed within an unsecured location (such as at the base of a camera column etc.) then their would be a concern about an intruder gaining access to the physical switch itself to potentially access the network. There are 2 possible options for system configuration in this case which are as follows: 1. Enabling Port Guardian on all the ports of the edge switch and setting the power cycle option to force port lock out: This would offer protection on all ports, however, the downside is if there was a power failure the only way
to gain access to the switch again would be to send an engineer to the switch itself to reset it via the USB serial port CLI. 2. Using switches at both sides of the system that have the Port Guardian feature: The switch at the field side would have it enabled only on the ports with edge devices connected while the switch at the head end would have it only enabled on the uplink port that connects to the field edge switch. This offers full protection and allows recovery after a power failure as 1 port will always have access as Port Guardian will not be enabled. 46

Global Study Cybersecurity professionals believe a catastrophic data breach to their organization is inevitable
new global cybersecurity study commissioned by Raytheon, in partnership with Ponemon Institute, reveals a majority of senior-level IT professionals fully expect their organization will experience a catastrophic data breach that could greatly impact shareholder value. The 2018 Global Megatrends in Cybersecurity survey of 1,100 senior-level IT and IT security global practitioners also shows that despite growing threats, IT professionals believe cybersecurity is still not considered a strategic priority among senior leadership. “Our hope is that CISOs and senior leaders can use this report as a tool to start a deep dialogue about the critical need for cybersecurity within their organizations,” said Raytheon Chairman and CEO Thomas A. Kennedy, “Every day the cyber threat is growing more sophisticated and aggressive, posing a real threat to global businesses across all sectors. To reduce risks, leaders must urgently work with their IT teams to identify potential vulnerabilities, develop an action plan and make the investments needed to protect the value of their organization.” The study looks at how cyber trends have evolved since Raytheon first sponsored the research in 2015. It also asks security professionals in the U.S., Europe, Middle East and North Africa to identify future trends
Key findings include: ●● 82% of respondents predict their workplace will suffer a catastrophic data breach in the next three years as a result of unsecured IoT devices. 66% say such an attack would seriously diminish shareholder value. ●● 67% believe cyber extortion such as ransomware and data breaches will increase in frequency and payout. ●● 60% predict nation-state attacks against government and commercial organizations will worsen and could potentially lead to a cyber war. ●● 46% believe their cybersecurity strategy will improve, down from 59% in 2015. ●● 60% expect their companies will have to spend more to achieve regulatory compliance and respond to lawsuits and litigation. over the next three years. Despite growing concerns about sophisticated and persistent cyber threats, only 36% of respondents believe senior leadership consider cybersecurity a strategic priority. Senior leadership are also seen as seemingly disengaged in the oversight of their organization’s cybersecurity strategy with 68% of CISO/ IT executives surveyed saying their Boards are not being briefed on measures taken to prevent or mitigate the consequences of a cyberattack. “Conversations around cybersecurity resiliency are happening among our nation's top intelligence chiefs, yet business leaders still have not made cybersecurity a business priority,” said Dr. Larry Ponemon, Chairman and Founder of Ponemon Institute, “This important research reveals an urgent need for executives SecurityLink India ■ March 2018

Assists SGMW Motors, Indonesia in Producing State-of-the-Art Vehicles Submitted by HIKVISION
pecified to provide a comprehensive security, health & safety and production management tool, SAIC General Motors Wuling (SGMW), is now operating a Hikvision based HD surveillance system at one of the world’s newest vehicle manufacturing plants. Established in 2002 by a joint venture and investment between SAIC Motor Corporation Ltd, General Motors and Guangxi Motor Corporation, SGMW is now an annual producer of 1 million commercial vehicles and passenger cars, including MPVs. SGMW has recently opened a third manufacturing plant located in Bekasi, Indonesia to meet its ambitious automotive production plans. Costing USD700 million, the new factory is built on a massive 60-hectare site and is expected to contribute to the creation of some 10,000 local jobs, producing its first vehicles under the Wuling brand. To provide the level of intelligent camera functionality and surveillance management required to meet the demands of the state-of-the-art SGMW
factory project, the automotive manufacturer enlisted the help of Hikvision distributor, Prima Inovasi Teknologi.
nstalled by Autojaya, the 172 Hikvision full HD smart video surveillance camera based system was designed from the outset to deliver the high quality of imaging and intelligent functionality required by SGMW. Integrating full HD capture, recording, decoding and display, the system utilises IP transmission over a local fibre video private network (VPN). Using a mix of Hikvision DS-2DF8223I-AEL 2MP WDR Darkfighter IR PTZ cameras with smart tracking & detection, DS-2CD6026FWD/ E-L ultra-low light Smart Darkfighters, DS-2CD4A26FWDIZ 2MP smart low light cameras and DS-2CD6986F-H 8MP multi-imager panoramic dome cameras with 180° horizontal view, the HD camera system supplies ultra-detailed imaging of every key internal and external factory location.
Across the entire site, the full HD smart camera network provides effective scene coverage and VCA alarm activation, providing HD imaging and automated situation alarm handling for the factory’s vehicle production areas, components warehouse, restaurants, data centre, offices, perimeter fence line, and exit & entry points, via a bespoke ANPR subsystem. Along with the HD surveillance cameras, the system uses Hikvision DS-3E1318P-E Web-managed PoE switches, DS-6916UDI HD decoders and DS-96128NI-I24 128-channel super 4K NVRs with up to 12 megapixel resolution recording, multi-format video encoding and HDD hot swappable storage to deliver ‘live’ and ‘recorded’ camera images to the factory’s Control Centre. To maximise the high level of image detail the HD cameras deliver, the system’s camera images are displayed on two massive video walls, consisting of multiple Hikvision DSD2055NL-B LCD HD ultra-slim 55” display monitors.
t the Control Centre, SGMW operatives view the entire factory site on a 3D electronic E-Map render, with intuitive smart control provided by Hikvision’s iVMS-5200 Enterprise Software. Using the 3D site map, operators can easily locate and select any system camera, and control specific camera live or recorded video, along with video preview of triggered alarms, 48

with their precise locations displayed via graphical icons on the factory EMap. Using the Enterprise Class Hikvision HD camera based system, operators can monitor in real-time, every stage of the vehicle production line process in finite detail. In the event of an incident or anything unusual taking place, the operators can react quickly, and select and review video information for analysis and reaction to the case, to keep vehicle production safe, whilst maintaining production and management efficiency.
he system’s archived video data can be accessed for use by many factory departments, to provide visual informa-
tion to remedy specific problems and support improved manufacturing and management efficiency, as well as the factory’s health & safety environment. Vehicular traffic is managed by a separate Hikvision ANPR subsystem with automated whitelist and blacklist alarm management, to ensure fast and smooth traffic flow in and out of the factory. “The Hikvision surveillance system supports SGMW’s site-wide management needs across many disciplines,” comments Bella, Lead Engineer of SGMW, “Using the cameras for multifunctional applications enriches the efficiency, security and implementation of best practice management across the whole factory, paying back its initial
return on investment and operational value many times.” “The system’s end-to-end unified hardware and software delivers advanced situation awareness of the factory’s personnel, vehicle production line, paint shop, data centre, offices and finished vehicles storage,” explains Arijanto, Director of Autojaya, “Using Hikvision Smart camera VCA alarm functionality, the system has been configured to provide the highest level of protection and safety for factory personnel, assets and site facilities. Any unauthorised access attempt to the site’s perimeter or internal restricted areas are all covered by the system, offering advanced protection whilst reducing the number of security guards needed.”

icente López, one of the 135 districts that make up the Buenos Aires province, started a project at the end of 2011 to modernize and expand the city’s video surveillance system. In addition to capturing criminal activity, the project’s main goal has always been to reduce crime through preventive measures. Stretching over 33 square kilometers, Vicente López is home to about 300,000 people. In recent years, the flow of population that moves through the district has risen considerably. Thousands move daily through the region on their way to and from the federal capital, via personal or public transport. These demands, together with other phenomena, made a high demand for the city’s video surveillance system to be improved. “Today, we have 1,000 cameras in public channels and another 100 connected in the local security guards’ and civil defense cell phones. In addition, we count on the urban monitoring center, the heart of our video surveillance system,
and ten local preventive detachments that use their own monitoring centers. This decentralizes security to key areas in the district,” said Martín Gasulla, Deputy Security Secretary of Vicente López while remembering that in the past the system had only 60 cameras, not all of which functioned properly. The city benefits from a wide array of cameras made by Pelco, Bosch and Axis Communications that range from PTZ to anti-vandalism, in both dome and fixed models. In addition, Vicente López has different alarm systems, panic buttons, lights and a digital dispatch console, which are connected to police cell phones.
he project’s main challenge became finding a platform that supported all these security systems. “The first step was to unify the three existing video management systems into one, which worked until we reached a certain growth point, when we opted for a more robust solution,” explained Gustavo A. Vilches, Director of Exanet S.A., the integrator company involved. Exanet chose Milestone XProtect Professional video management software (VMS) to manage the project’s demand for a growing number of cameras. “One of this solution’s biggest advantages as an open platform that allows us to offer additional soluSecurityLink India ■ March 2018
tions to our clients,” Vilches explained. The Vicente López system is connected by fiber network optics: the cameras capture an image, the content moves through the network to the VMS and is displayed in the urban monitoring center, which also includes a data center and storage servers. Normally, the protected information remains there for 30 days, unless there is a special petition by judicial authorities or police to use or view it. Santiago Espeleta, Vicente López Secretary of Security says, “One of the biggest changes in daily operations is being able to integrate other solutions like analytics technology, which has led to better results for crime prevention and decision-making.” According to him, one of the project’s biggest challenges was the financing by public resources. “This is our residents’ money, and for this reason every decision was made extra carefully. We couldn’t afford the luxury of making errors, so we searched for top-of-the-line providers, analyzed them and made a decision,” he affirmed.
ccording to district authorities, the objective between now and 2019 is to increase the video system to 1,500 cameras that record in full HD, 365 days of the year. Vilches says they are studying the possibility of upgrading to Milestone XProtect Corporate VMS to leverage its federated architecture.

The Odyssey Complex Upgrades IP Security Camera Visitor safety gets major boost at belfast’s premier events venue New system propels The Odyssey Complex into the future of security with low-light technology that assures superb image quality, even during concerts and sporting events
he Odyssey Complex, a premier entertainment venue in Belfast that plays host to many of the city’s high-profile concerts, exhibitions and sporting events, has installed a futureproofed IP security solution that ensures its 1,000,000 visitors each year can enjoy the facilities in a safe and secure environment. The vast 23-acre site comprises the SSE Arena; a pavilion including restaurants, shops and a cinema; the W5 Science and Discovery Centre; as well as a 1,500-space car park. The new system, consisting of more than 140 IP cameras from Axis Communications, replaces an analogue CCTV solution which was nearing the end of its technical life cycle. It produces better quality images and makes it easier for the onsite security teams to investigate crimes and identify individuals of interest. The IP camera system was installed by Diamond Systems, an Axis Partner and specialist in electronic fire and security solutions. The inclusion of HD IP cameras, which feature Axis’ innovative Lightfinder technology with extreme light sensitivity, provide security teams with more life-like colours in low-light conditions, vital within the arena during sporting events and concerts. Brian Hughes, Group Head of Facilities at The Odyssey Complex, states, “The safety of our patrons is of paramount importance to the complex, which

is why we have taken this step to invest in a future proof system. Upgrading to HD IP camera technology made complete sense to us as we strive to maintain our status as the leading event facility in Northern Ireland. “Through the use of intelligent applications such as Lightfinder we can be confident that we have the technology to support our unique security needs. Working closely with Axis and Diamond Systems, we were also keen to ensure the system had capacity to include analytics in the future. This could include customer footfall and queue management, bringing benefits in terms of operational effectiveness, guest satisfaction and, of course, visitor safety,” says Steve Snoddon, Managing Director at Diamond Systems, “We installed the original CCTV system 17 years ago when the complex SecurityLink India ■ March 2018
was first developed. While providing value at the time, technology has progressed at such a rapid pace since that it was time for us to re-evaluate the technology available to support its requirements.” Peter Dempsey, Key Account Manager at Axis Communications, comments, “We wanted something that would not only incorporate today’s leading technology and maintain a high level of cybersecurity, but also prepare the complex for its security needs in the future. As the leading entertainment venue of its kind in Northern Ireland, the Odyssey’s security requirements are continuously evolving. Our commitment to really understand the business, and partnering with organisations such as Diamond Systems, ensured we could deliver a solution that was tailored to its needs.” 51

Protecting Physical Security Against the Threat of a Cyber World The rapid gains technology has made into everyday living has also changed how the security industry operates. In short, systems have moved from being very simple inputs and outputs that turn on bells, to now being alwaysconnected devices making the industry very much part of the IoT world. Of course, this leads to the question – how does physical security protect itself from cyber vulnerabilities? Who protects the protector, so to speak
his ethos has changed how Vanderbilt think over the last few years when designing and developing their own security systems, in particular SPC. FlexC, the company’s communications protocol, was redesigned from the ground up solely with cybersecurity in mind. The entire protocol has been designed to ensure everything is encrypted, all communications are monitored, and multiple types of attack are considered for defensive purposes to provide the best security possible.
Multiple lines of defense
PC has built-in protection mechanisms whereby if the system is attacked, it will go into protection mode. The system will remain operational and it will still be able to communicate out, but it will start to shut down elements of itself to protect the system from the
attack. Again, no system is completely invincible. SPC has also been designed so that should an attack penetrate, the system has multiple communication paths available as backup. Therefore, if one server is taken down the system can immediately switch to a backup server and then switch communication paths to bypass the attack and ensure messages are still operating successfully.
echnology in day-to-day life might be growing at a rapid rate leading to fears of potential security breaches. But
SecurityLink India ■ March 2018
one must remember that technology’s growth also means that security defenses are developing in parallel. At its core, security is about being continuously observant, always following best practices, and being ready and able to react against a security issue. Best practices to combat the threat of a cyberattack can be quite straightforward. The most obvious place to start is to choose equipment from reliable suppliers that have a knowledge and interest in cybersecurity and are focused on protecting data. It might sound simple but buying products with a built-in security focus greatly reduces the risk of a cyber attack. When your security system is designed from the ground up to protect against cyberattacks, then naturally your organization will be in a much better place.

Protecting Drivers and Goods Euro Rastpark – Premium Parking Areas
n recent years, a particular form of criminality has become more widespread on Europe’s major highways: the theft of valuable commercial goods, vehicles and their cargoes. The financial cost is enormous: German insurers pay an average of a million euros per business day for lost commercial goods alone. On top of this, property damage must be considered, and no less important are the threat and uncertainty felt by many drivers. Even the fuel tanks on lorries have been targeted by organised crime, and accordingly theft of fuel has become a regular cause of annoyance to drivers and hauliers alike. In recent times, the police have been called to investigate as many as nine criminal offences a week at the Theeßen Euro Rastpark on Eastern Europe Route A2. The company has recorded high crime rates elsewhere too. Respected logistics companies were even compelled to warn their driving personnel about less safe routes. The situation could not be allowed to continue, and Euro Rastpark began working with other members of the Association of German Off-motorway Truck Stop Owners (VEDA) to combat the problems by developing a security concept that addressed actual conditions.
The solution: Premium parking areas
uro Rastpark now offers premium parking areas that are screened and monitored according to VEDA standards for lorries at seven of its truck stops. Their aim was to develop a security solution that could be implemented quick-
ly and without prohibitive expense. Managing director Johannes Witt explains the concept, “We have not relied on expensive construction, but rather on pragmatic detection and deterrent measures such as restricted approach roads, the best possible lighting and complete documentation of all movements by vehicles and people.” For the full-coverage detection of all movements, they decided to use an economical and top-quality video observation solution offered by another Regensburg-based company, the technology pioneer Dallmeier. Accordingly, DF5200HD-DN/ IR type high resolution infrared cameras have now been deployed to improve security on the approach and departure roads to the separate lorry parking areas at the Theeßen Euro Rastpark. The video system is set up so that the vehicle licence plates are clearly readable not only by day, but also in night recording mode. The video data is backed up reliably by the DMS 2400 appliance, one of the most powerful recording solutions in Dallmeier's inventory. During the project, Euro Rastpark seized the opportunity and commissioned Dallmeier to install cameras for observing the refuelling lanes as well as the retail area and cash registers in the service station shop. In all, 24 camera systems are now operational and SecurityLink India ■ March 2018
between them they monitor all critical areas. The 96 lorry parking spaces at the Theeßen truck stop now constitute a further precinct of safety and calm within a zone that is fully protected by video technology.
Protection for drivers and goods
he number of thefts of vehicles, goods and fuel from the secured parking area has fallen dramatically. These new security zones also mean that the drivers can work with more peace of mind, since they do not have to worry about the safety of their valuable cargoes, or even their personal safety on top of the normal cares of a demanding job. “Since we started this initiative, the number of robberies has fallen massively,” confirms Witt. More protection and comfort for drivers, theft prevention for goods and operating equipment – video technology from Dallmeier ensures that the logistics chain does not break down on the roads and highways. 53

Ted’s Pawn Protects Customer Assets With Verified Video Surveillance Sophisticated technology catches would-be thieves before they can do damage
ed’s Pawn, located in Norwood, OH, has successfully been using video verification technology to reduce false alarms and catch the bad guys before they’re able to gain entry to the store and adjoining storage lot. “Ted’s Pawn has been a long-time customer for us,” explained Wayne Lisle, VP and GM for Sonitrol SW Ohio, “They’ve had analog video surveillance for about eight years, and we had been utilizing audio verification of alarms for the inside of the store. The outside lot was a different story.” The Ted’s Pawn outdoor lot is filled with vehicles, motorcycles, boats, and high value items that they must protect. “We wanted to do video verification for the lot,” said Lisle, “but until recently there were many challenges – complicated installation, connectivity, reliability, and eliminating false alarms.” “Now with a 3xLOGIC hybrid DVR, we can use analytics to associate existing outdoor cameras – two cover the yard, two cover the shop’s roof – to the Sonitrol panel and seamlessly provide video
alarm feeds to our Sonitrol central station to detect and verify any threat. Going forward, Ted’s can install IP cameras and even thermal cameras to the existing network covering the lot.” In the most recent incident at Ted’s, the Sonitrol operator received a video alarm feed showing a man entering the outdoor lot. The operator dispatched police and the suspect was apprehended in short order. “One of the most important aspects of our business is taking care of our customer’s valuable items,” said Ralph Tincher of Ted’s Pawn Shop, “One of the ways that we’ve taken the extra step to ensure we’re taking care of their precious goods is partnering
SecurityLink India ■ March 2018
with Sonitrol Verified Video security. Years ago, at our former location we had a break-in. The thief was able to get into the building and do some damage. After talking to other members in our industry, we found out there are ways to catch thieves before they get into your building.” “Here at our new, larger location where we deal with a lot of high-dollar items, we’ve had three attempted breakins in the last six years. Every single time, thanks to Sonitrol verified video, powered by 3xLOGIC technology, those thieves were caught before they got anywhere near to entering the building,” Tincher concluded.

Bringing D/N High-Resolution Vision to Cars
TMicroelectronics, a global semiconductor provider serving customers across the spectrum of electronics applications, and AdaSky, an Israeli-based start-up bringing far infrared (FIR) technology to the automotive market to enable vehicles of tomorrow to see further and better, has announced a collaboration, in which AdaSky’s FIR thermal camera embeds custom silicon co-designed with and manufactured by ST in its proprietary 28nm FD-SOI manufacturing technology. The complete sensing solution from AdaSky, called Viper, aims to enable autonomous vehicles to see and understand the roads and their surroundings in any condition. ●● Far-Infrared thermal camera extends ADAS sensor fusion capability with a new layer of information, paving the way to fully-autonomous driving in any condition.
●● P rototypes are now under evaluation by carmakers with initial production targeted for 2020. Having complete sight and perception of the roadway, other vehicles, roadside infrastructure, and obstacles, especially in challenging lighting or weather conditions, is fundamental to the safe operation of next-generation autonomous cars. To achieve 24/7 autonomous driving, vehicles will rely on the fusion of complementary information streams provided by different sensors. No sensor or camera in operation today can capture all of the information on its own and each has challenges in certain lighting or weather conditions. Passive infrared vision, like that in AdaSky’s Viper, when used in a fusion solution, can help close the gaps to provide accurate sight and perception without fail in dynamic lighting con-
ditions, in direct sunlight, in the face of oncoming headlights, and in harsh weather. The new camera uses an FIR microbolometer sensor to detect the temperature of an object. In an ADAS solution, Viper uses proprietary algorithms based on Convolutional Neural Networks to classify obstacles and show them in a cockpit display to give the driver an early warning. This warning comes several seconds earlier than it would when using a conventional sensor in the visible wavelength and is even faster than what is possible with the human eye. Viper has been designed in ST’s proprietary 28nm FD-SOI manufacturing technology and uses ST IP that is fully qualified for automotive applications. Prototypes are under evaluation by carmakers, targeting a start of production in 2020.
New Turret Cameras Offering unique advantages for retail and hospitality use
icon Industries, Inc., designer and manufacturer of video surveillance and access control software, hardware and components, is now shipping its new 2MP and 4MP turret cameras, ideal for retail and hospitality applications. The V930D and V9500D Series are turret, or ‘eyeball,’ cameras featuring H.264/ H.265 compression, wide-dynamic-range, IR LEDs and low-light capabilities. They can be surface, wall or ceiling mounted, are suitable for indoor and outdoor use, and offer extreme ease-of-installation and adjustment due to their innovative form factor. Turret cameras offer the compact size, mounting flexibility and 360 degree range of camera domes, but with the ease-ofpositioning and extended IR range of a bullet design. In addition, the lack of a clear dome housing improves image quality by eliminating the reflection of IR LEDs that can ‘bounce’ off the inside of the dome and condensation that can form on the exterior. For retail and hospitality applications, where cameras are often ceiling or in-ceiling mounted, turrets offer aesthetics similar to dome models but easier access for positioning and maintenance. They are also affordable for installations that require large quantities for use throughout an entire facility. “With the introduction of an entire new line of H.265 cameras, we are pleased to include these turret models, which offer customers a unique set of benefits related to performance and usability, and do so at a very cost-effective price point,” said Bret McGowan, Senior V.P., Sales & Marketing.

The project is implemented not far from Chernobyl and serves as an example of alternative development of the territories affected by the nuclear disaster. Solar Power Station at Bragin has won the nomination ‘Technologies and projects based on renewable energy sources’ and also the 1st place at the Republican contest ‘Leader of Energy Efficiency 2016.’ Uniview provided video surveillance solution for the Solar Power Station.
●● Anti-static: Usually, a power station generates a lot of static which would influence devices’ working. UNV IP cameras are all certified by CE and tested through ESD (Electronic Static Discharge). All of cameras are able to bear 4KV contact discharge and 8KV air discharge which are in the highest level of the industry. ●● The project used NVR516 which features 32/ 64ch strong decoding ability and redundant design, and RAID for the highest level data safety. ●● Perimeter protection: UNV IP cameras are mainly used along the fence. Occupying such a huge area, it would be difficult for security staff to discover if someone breaks into the area. With intrusion detection, UNV IP camera would send and alarm within seconds and help security staff react quickly.

Protecting Cheshire Service’s Entire Estate Chubb wins significant contract with Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service for 32 locations
hubb is helping to protect employees, visitors and property through a significant new contract with Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service to install, upgrade, maintain and monitor fire alarm systems throughout the Service’s entire estate. Chubb, a leading provider of security and fire-safety solutions, is a part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp. Michael Johnson, Environment, Energy and Engineering Officer, Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service, says that Chubb was chosen over four other suppliers because it scored highest against benchmarked requirements: “The presentation was highly informative and professional, which has proven to be the hallmark of the service we receive from Chubb,” said Michael. The contract includes 28 fire stations, two community safety centres, Cheshire Fire and Rescue’s Sadler Road site and the new innovative safety centre based in Lymm. Each site is a different size and specification, requiring detailed individual assessments. Some stations required new custom systems to be de-

signed; in other buildings, existing systems were upgraded. A combination of addressable fire alarm systems and conventional alarms were used, depending on the individual site’s requirements. “The fact that Chubb is a national brand with a local office was another important factor in our supplier decision. The service we have received has been second to none. Communication has been excellent with regular updates, and challenges were met with a common sense approach. I felt my requirements were always championed by our Chubb account manager. We have found that the customer is at the forefront of the Chubb approach,” said Johnson. The primary goal of the new contract is to ensure all sites meet BS5839 L2 fire alarm safety standards. These standards are designed to provide automatic fire detection on all escape routes within a building and rooms leading onto those escape routes. For Cheshire, it was also important that the supplier have the expertise and capacity to complete installations and upgrades on a very tight deadline. “The Service has been extremely impressed with the speed in which the contract has been mobilised. Even though we needed to add another fire station, all works were completed safely,” said Johnson. All alarms are monitored by Chubb’s alarm receiving centre, which notifies keyholders and relevant emergency services if a fire is detected and alarm raised. The contact also includes maintenance and servicing requirements.
WYP Demonstrates UK-First Biometrics Technology N
orthern England’s West Yorkshire Police has gone live with real-time, automated, mobile biometrics technology from Motorola Solutions. Following a recent demonstration, it will now roll out to 250 frontline police officers. The application runs with Pronto, which delivers comprehensive and flexible mobile information solutions to police forces across the UK. West Yorkshire Police is the first to implement the biometrics solution, which will allow officers to check fingerprints against national fingerprint database records in less than a minute. It does this via handheld scanners that attach to an officer’s phone, which then accesses a new Biometric Services Gateway system. West Yorkshire Police is the fourth largest police service in the country, serving approximately 2.2 million people in rural areas and large metropolitan districts such as Bradford, Leeds and Wakefield. ●● Fingerprint scanning added to Pronto mobile application suite that is used by a third of UK police forces. ●● Real-time access to digital database streamlines workflow and improves accuracy. Until recently, identifying or collecting data from individuals involved costly outdated devices and paper-based processes. This new system, developed in partnership between West Yorkshire Police and the Home Office, is available via the force’s existing mobile devices and allows access to the live database from the field to get results in real time. This creates a seamless workflow by removing the need to travel between the field and office or station to process information. As officers are able to obtain the right information about suspects quickly, accuracy is also greatly improved. “Almost instantly after deployment we found how valuable rapid biometric identification can be,” said Ian Williams, Chief Inspector, Digital Policing lead for West Yorkshire Police, “We have already been able to identify a seriously injured individual, enabling medical staff to quickly offer accurate treatment and contact the family. In another case, we’ve identified a disqualified driver, summoned him to court and seized his vehicle on the scene – all without the need to travel to the station and practically disable an Armed Response Vehicle for hours.” “Biometrics is an exciting addition to the Pronto offering and demonstrates the type of advancements that will see the complete digital transformation of public safety agencies. West Yorkshire Police is at the forefront of this shift, along with the other 17 forces using Pronto to work more effectively and collaboratively,” said Phil Jefferson, Vice President for Western Europe and North Africa, and Country Manager UK and Ireland at Motorola Solutions. The biometrics capability builds on the success that the force has already seen with Pronto, namely crime scene investigation applications, which was recognised at the Public Sector Paperless awards last year with a win in the ‘Process and Workflow – Project of the Year’ category for its use of digital technology to support all frontline policing.

Keeping Passengers and Vehicle Safe for Istanbul City Lines Ferries Challenge
ith over 166 years’ experience of seaports, ships and ferries, City Lines offer comfortable and safe sea transportation services to tourists and those who live and work in Istanbul. Over 150,000 passengers use City Lines services every day. Having decided to offer a new ferry service between Istinye and Cubuklu, which are both part of the Istanbul conurbation but on different sides of the Bosphorus, City Lines asked security systems integrator InfoMET Technologies, to recommend video surveillance cameras which could help keep passengers and the ferries safe and secure. The cameras would be required to cope with sea conditions as well as capture high resolution images day or night.
50 Wisenet cameras have been installed throughout 20 City Lines ships. In addition to keeping a close eye on passengers, the cameras are also used to monitor the movement of 2,000 vehicles which are transported daily and are a valuable navigational tool for captains, as they enable them to view blind spots which cannot be seen from the bridge. The majority of the 250 cameras installed are Wisenet QNO-7080Rs which are part of the Wisenet Q series. These 4 Megapixel bullet cameras have built-in IR illumination and are packed with innovative features such as H.265 compression and WiseStream, a complementary compression technology
which dynamically controls encoding, balancing quality and compression, according to movement in the image. When WiseStream is combined with H.265 compression, bandwidth efficiency is improved by up to 75% compared to current H.264 technology. This ensures the Wisenet Q series is one of the most bandwidth friendly camera ranges available. The QNO-7080R also features Hallway View, True Wide Dynamic Range, Tamper Detection, Defocus Detection, and Lens Distortion Correction, to deliver optimized images in every situation. Hallway View provides a highly effective way to monitor narrow vertical areas such as corridors, tunnels and aisles. It enables cameras which can generate images in the 9:16 x 3:4 aspect ratio, to work effectively in tall and narrow spaces.
One of the biggest factors in choosing Wisenet cameras is they do not have any problems in the environments we operate,” said Cuneyt Danaci, IT Specialist for City Lines, “Equally important, whilst we did not want to compromise on quality, we needed cameras which had a high price/ performance ratio.

UK Public Transport Security To benefit from growing shift from forensic to real-time video surveillance
move away from legacy analogue CCTV technology to IP video solutions will enable critical transport networks to effectively deter, detect and delay threats to ensure passenger safety. More than 85% of transport net-
works across Western Europe are planning to install IP cameras in the near future. That’s according to a recent survey commissioned by Axis Communications, the leading provider of network video and audio technology, in partnership with the global public transport organisation The Union Internationale des Transports Publics (UITP). Globally, the transport industry has led the way in using network video for both security and commercial applications. IP video surveillance is also increasingly playing a crucial role in the smooth and efficient running of significant parts of the UK’s rail network, highlighted by the successful deployment of network camera technology at Canary Wharf Station. This helped the station 62
facilitate 24-hour rail operations and improve passenger safety. The shift to IP video surveillance is helping operators utilise real-time analytics to enhance decision making, ranging from common platform changes to the more infrequent critical scenarios such as a station clearance in response to a security threat or other emergency. For example, machine learning technology is helping turn vast transport surveillance infrastructures into live monitoring systems. This software identifies what is ‘normal’ activity within a scene, automatically creating an alert if ‘abnormal’ activity is recognised. However, despite this migration trend, the UK has struggled to keep pace with developments in such technologies. Although 97.3% of survey respondents said they had some degree of video surveillance installed, 66% cited either other priorities, funding difficulties, or no clear business case as the main barriers for not investing in more innovative IP technology. Interestingly, approximately 75% of those who responded no clear business case relied on outdated analogue technology to meet their surveillance needs. SecurityLink India ■ March 2018
Lucas Young, Business Development Manager, Transportation, Axis Communications states, “These results are incredibly important. The perceived lack of a business case highlights that many transport operators are unaware of the security and efficiency benefits realtime video surveillance can offer. To respond to security events as and when they happen; a proactive rather than reactive approach is required. That just isn’t possible with legacy CCTV equipment. “When analysing security footage in real-time with advanced IP technology, operators are faced with hundreds of live feeds. This may seem daunting, but automated alerts can assist in managing the increased amount of data real-time video creates, helping to identify potential threats as they happen, preventing them from becoming security incidents. This is also freeing up staff time, so they can concentrate on improving the passenger experience.” Lucas Young continues, “While the benefits of connecting once offline technologies to a network creates an array of benefits for transport networks, it is also important to note that all devices connected to the internet are potentially vulnerable to cyber-attack. Cybersecurity is a huge issue for the transport industry and could prove a costly oversight if technology is not implemented correctly. We aim to protect our transport networks not only from physical threats, but also online ones.”

University in Uruguay Achieves High Quality Security Leveraging Existing Equipment, at a Lower Cost
hen moving to a new headquarters four times larger, the School of Information and Communication of the University of the Republic of Uruguay in Montevideo needed to implement a video monitoring system that provides high performance and reliability. The University is a structure of 8,500 square meters and four floors that now house nearly 4,000 students, 200 teachers and 80 administrative and logistics staff on a daily basis. As Yonathan Benelli, IT Manager at Udelar states, “The new headquarters greatly increased the vulnerability points for security. Without a video system like the one now implemented, it would be unfeasible to maintain an acceptable level of security.” Benelli adds that despite the need for a professional video surveillance system for the educational institution, it was unthinkable to carry out a traditional CCTV installation with coaxial cabling, due to its high cost. Therefore, the installation of a Milestone IP video management system within the existing IT network infrastructure versus performing a coaxial interconnection resulted in a very significant cost reduction. The savings were not only in technology acquisition, but also in hardware and human resources. “We estimate that without this system, we would have needed at least four added employees dedicated to surveillance. Also, we took advantage of existing hardware,” said Benelli.
A custom-made solution
oxsys, the company managing the technology integration for this project, proposed the implementation of the XProtect Professional solution from Milestone Systems. It is an open interface application designed for IP network video management software with easy, intuitive and powerful functions. The XProtect Smart Client interface has advanced search tools that combine with an easy-to-navigate video timeline, allowing users to quickly and accurately examine events. It also offers sophisticated export options, including the Storyboard feature, which helps consolidate relevant video evidence to gain a complete view of incidents. According to Juan Martín González, Commercial Director of the Foxsys Integrating Firm, “The XProtect Professional software was selected because of the system’s alarm notifications which were important in this application.” He said the solution was complemented by two virtual machines that operate on an HP server and are managed by the software Promox, which proved highly reliable. Digital Watchdog and Hikvision cameras were used. “In particular, the DW cameras allowed us to have a 180-degree panorama of some specific areas and the HK cameras were extremely useful because Milestone recognizes the video analytSecurityLink India ■ March 2018
ics’ algorithms of crossing a perimeter line that run in the camera. A data network was implemented on Cat 6 UTP and HPE PoE 1920 switches. In terms of storage, we used the NAS QNAP brand with eight bays of 4TB each, implementing a RAID 5 for more protection and data writing speed. We were surprised how well Milestone worked on a Proxmox virtual machine,” says Gonzalez.
Advantages and high satisfaction
The implementation was a success in every sense, not only from the point of view of the service provided by the system, but also by the guidance, suggestions and labor that the company provided beyond the installation and configuration, in which all the required and additional goals were met,” concluded Benelli. 63
The Value of Surge Protection for Surveillance System in Multiple Sectors A
t first glance, warehouses, sports stadiums, datacenters, convenience stores and healthcare facilities may not have much in common. Yet, they all house expensive equipment including security equipment, that is at risk due to power surges that can damage, degrade or destroy that equipment, and result in downtime and financial losses. While insurance may cover the cost of repairing material damage to a security system, the downtime is often not covered by insurance and can quickly surpass the cost of surge protection devices or the cost of the damaged equipment. The protection provided by a surge protector on a security system and its devices is essential to protect and to lengthen the life of a physical security system. Surge protection needs to be
an integral element of the planning and design of a security system and not just an afterthought. Itâ€™s also key to choose the right surge protection that will not only deliver the right level of electrical absorption to handle regular spikes and surges, but will also work for specific situations and sector requirements.
any businesses that need to keep a large array of merchandise on hand maintain and operate immense warehouses with significant infrastructure requirements. For many warehouses, refrigeration is an essential function to keep produce and other fragile products fresh. With advanced refrigeration technology these devices now have a great deal of complex operability â€“ some can maintain temperature to a tenth of a degree, allowing storage of much more delicate products, and many are now networked to enable remote management and monitoring. While this new functionality brings convenience and efficiency to users, it also increases the possibility of a surge event that can damage large amounts of merchandise. Surge events have historically damaged any device connected to the electrical grid, but the relative isolation of refrigeration equipment on the network has protected it from surges affecting other parts of a warehouse. SecurityLink India â– March 2018
As the use of network-enabled refrigeration equipment grows, so does the likelihood of surge damage being transferred from other devices to this essential infrastructure. Surge damage to refrigeration equipment can take a number of different forms. Although the refrigeration capability may still be present, remote control of the device or internal temperature monitoring may no longer be functional, resulting in damage to refrigerated merchandise as temperatures fluctuate without operator knowledge. In the event of a more powerful surge, the entire device could be badly damaged or even destroyed entirely, necessitating its replacement and possibly the replacement of all of the goods it contained. Power surges can come from within a facility as well as from outside through a lightning strike, so it is essential to protect each individual device, especially connected devices such as smart refrigeration. Electrical equipment can generate power surges that then transfer to other devices on the same network, which causes damage similar to a surge caused by a lightning strike or other external electrical fluctuation. Surge protection should be installed at the refrigeration equipment itself as well as at any cables that run between the inside and outside
of a facility. To protect temperature-sensitive goods and equipment, it is essential to keep refrigeration equipment functional. Installing surge protection throughout a warehouse and on refrigeration equipment can help you prevent a costly meltdown.
ports stadiums and other event venues are complex facilities, featuring a myriad of systems that all must work in tandem during concerts, sporting events, conventions and large-scale public gatherings. A stadium needs lighting systems, security, POS, ticket collection, video displays and many other systems to function optimally and continually. A power surge that damages electronic systems is dangerous for these systems, causing downtime or even destruction of equipment. Should one of these systems go down, issues are created beyond the loss of the system functionality. A POS system not functioning during an event means that sales cannot go through, resulting in financial losses from concessions and merchandise. Should ticket collection mechanisms not properly function, tickets could be counted inaccurately, resulting in unauthorized persons sneaking into an event or authorized persons not being granted access. A very public display of stadiums systems suddenly becoming nonfunctional took place at the 2013 Super Bowl in the New Orleans Superdome, when a partial power outage stopped the lighting from functioning during the nighttime game, stopping play for 34 minutes. A newly installed relay tripped, resulting in the power outage, during which only emergency lighting functioned. The incident showed the stadium’s inability to
cope and the city’s inability to plan. As stadiums may host a variety of different events, there are diverse risks with systems not operating. A stadium hosting a hockey game needs to keep the ice constantly cooled, while a concert requires electronic microphones and amps to broadcast the artist’s music, as well as plotting complex lighting and pyrotechnics that could become dangerous if improperly set off. And with any system downtime, security is at risk. Without security cameras to monitor situations, security officers cannot properly respond to incidents, and it is much easier for unauthorized persons to enter sensitive areas or bring restricted items into the stadium. The correct surge protection is essential to prevent damaging surges from creating security events in a stadium environment. Most surges in a stadium environment are internally generated, caused by the large electronics needed to properly run such a large venue, including HVAC and power generators. These large surges can then be distributed to smaller devices such as cameras and POS. In determining the precise surge protection to protect stadium systems, it’s essential to consider each system individually as well as the stadium as a whole. Ensuring that there is surge protection on individual electronics and larger machinery can help protect smaller devices from larger surges. In a stadium or event venue, many systems of electronics come together to create a singular experience for attendees, and protecting the systems in the SecurityLink India ■ March 2018
event of a surge requires implementing the correct surge protection products.
ith the advent of cloud technology, data centers are increasingly used to house greater amounts of precious data, from iPhone photos to national security information. For any organization that uses digital technology, data centers are a critical element of business operations. While some organizations choose to maintain their storage in house, more often data centers are separate facilities, housing hundreds or thousands of servers for multiple businesses. Maintaining uptime is a foundational function of any data center – ensuring that all organizations who house valuable data in their servers maintain constant access and that none of the data is lost, changed, accessed, or stolen. Data centers also require constant protection from downtime. Any issue with the functioning of the servers or the physical and cybersecurity that protects them opens a data center to liability – 65
from thieves breaking into the facility itself, loss of data on the servers, or surge events that cause damage to essential infrastructure. Installing surge protection on critical systems for data centers can help manage some of the risk. Even more, installing an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) can help mitigate one of the most dangerous risks to a data center – that a loss of power will take down servers. A UPS installed on the system safeguards that power is maintained during an unforeseen power disruption, and that data is not lost or corrupted. Several types of UPS are available on the market, including standby and interactive battery backups; but for data centers, the most functional battery backup is an online UPS. A lower grade UPS doesn’t isolate a power supply well enough to protect critical data center servers from damage or corruption, while an online UPS supplies power from the battery directly to connected devices, converting outside power to battery power to ensure systems are protected when other power events disrupt the power supply. Keeping data available, safe and uncorrupted is the paramount 66
mission statement of a data center. Surge events can easily disrupt this essential functionality and create liability issues, corrupt data, or even damage the servers themselves. Keeping an online UPS on a data center’s critical systems can help to ensure the consistent protection of the facility and its contents.
he risk of damage caused by electrical surges is familiar to anyone working in the convenience store industry. With electrical devices installed both indoors and outdoors throughout a location, the chance is high that an electrical
SecurityLink India ■ March 2018
surge will affect one or more devices. Video surveillance and security, AC power devices, POS and pay-at-pump machinery are only some of the vulnerable points at which a convenience store or truck stop might be affected by an electrical surge. Smaller, less obvious internal surges account for most of the surge damage done to electrical devices, and often are caused by basic usage – for example, turning on another power source such as HVAC on the same grid can cause power fluctuations that may damage equipment. In addition, the advent of the Internet of Things has led to an influx of interconnected devices that share a single network. With these networked devices, the chance that a surge at one point on the grid will affect other equipment is even higher. A single lightning strike can destroy the device it strikes and then travel along the power supply, damaging or destroying expensive equipment and causing costly downtime. Security cameras, intercom systems, electronic safes, pump controllers, ice boxes and mechanical signs are just some of the devices that could be easily damaged by surges. All of these are expensive to replace, and having to repair or replace them would necessitate downtime for a business. Low-cost, easily changed, rugged surge protectors can help ensure that important equipment remains functioning in the event of a surge, and that power fluctuations do not cause unnecessary wear and tear. Adding surge protection on all of essential devices helps protect them from surges and
prevent them from disseminating surges along their network. To ensure proper protection, surge protectors should be installed between devices, as well as at each device, to prevent surges both from damaging equipment and from travelling between devices.
rom heart rate monitors to medication pumps, much of what keeps patients alive and healthy in hospitals is dependent on a steady flow of power. However, there are other critical systems in healthcare facilities that require the highest level of protection from power disruptions as well such as video surveillance and access control systems. Should these stop functioning, the results could be catastrophic or even fatal. It is essential in healthcare facilities to protect the systems from damaging power spikes and surges. The most obvious outcome of a video surveillance system not operating is the potential loss of video data. However, there are other possible outcomes that are far more damaging. Video surveillance cameras going offline due to a surge event could result in a hospital missing vital footage of a patient wandering into an unauthorized area or harming themselves. Downtime on access control systems presents a similar risk – without proper access control, hazardous equipment or high-security areas like neonatal wards or drug closets containing controlled medications may be freely accessible. It’s essential that surveillance, access control and other security systems remain online at all times. Surge protection can help ensure that these critical systems avoid downtime. Loss of critical video surveillance and access control systems can create
tremendous liabilities for hospitals in addition to the danger it presents for patient care. If these systems go offline, other security functions may also cease to function properly. In healthcare facilities with maternity wards, for example, a variety of access control and other electronic solutions exist to protect newborns from abduction. Should these systems go down due to a surge, newborns may suddenly be at risk, additionally creating a liability risk to the facility. If a newborn is abducted, a lack of video surveillance data around the time of the incident greatly magnifies the severity of both the catastrophe and the liability. All of this can be prevented by making sure these systems remain up and running in the event of a damaging power surge. As more services move to the cloud and devices join the network, the risk of damaging surges migrating to other parts of a facility increases. When all devices are networked across systems, a surge could move from a surveillance camera, for example, through a digital network to a device on another system. Putting surge protection in place on these devices, and especially at locations where the network moves from outside the facility to the inside, can help prevent surges from spreading SecurityLink India ■ March 2018
across a network and damaging or destroying multiple devices or systems. Healthcare facilities need to be able to keep all of their systems up and running. Protecting video surveillance and access control from damaging power events with surge protection can help to protect a facility, its employees and its patients.
here is no such thing as a facility or organization that is free from the risk of power surges or lightning strikes. Sudden, severe voltage surges like those from lightning can cause almost immediate and total failure of security equipment. However, even small power voltage surges can deteriorate sensitive circuitry over an extended period of time. For every type of organization, whether it’s a sports stadium, warehouse, hospital, convenience store or a data center, the cost of surge protection for essential security systems is an intelligent investment that delivers tangible ROI by protecting from power surges and lightning strikes and avoiding costly downtime. Incorporating surge protection into a facility is easy and affordable, and is the best way to ensure that security equipment is safe. 67
Nets Most Wanted Murder Fugitive
olice in Buenos Aires have arrested an internationally wanted murder suspect after his image was identified as a likely match by INTERPOL’s facial recognition unit. Kristian Danev, a Slovak national aged 33, is wanted internationally by Czech authorities under an INTERPOL Red Notice following a murder ten years ago. As part of an investigation by police in Argentina, INTERPOL’s National Central Bureau in Buenos Aires submitted images of the suspect to INTERPOL’s General Secretariat headquarters for comparison against records in its facial recognition database. After the search result came up as a
potential match, police in Argentina detained the suspect for further questioning, resulting in the suspect confirming his identity. “In less than 48 hours, INTERPOL’s global police cooperation platform helped locate, identify and arrest an international fugitive who had evaded justice for a decade,” said Harald Arm, Director of Operational Support and Analysis at INTERPOL. “This illustrates the fundamental role of INTERPOL’s policing capabilities and forensic data in international police investigations. We need to ensure that vital information moves faster than fugitives,” added Mr Arm. INTERPOL’s Fugitive Investigative
Support unit was supported by its Command and Coordination Centre and its regional bureau in Buenos Aires. They worked closely together with the INTERPOL National Central Bureaus in Bratislava, Buenos Aires and Prague to ensure the quick exchange of information on the case. INTERPOL launched its facial recognition biometric service in November 2016. It already contains more than 44,000 images from 137 countries. Police forces across the globe use INTERPOL’s facial recognition tool daily to make connections between criminals and crime scenes, identify fugitives and missing persons or to compare mugshots.

Nec Asia Pacific Successfully Completes 3 Safety and Security Trials with Singapore Government N
EC Corporation and NEC Asia Pacific announced the successful completion of three Safety and Security test bed projects, held in and near Jurong Island, under the Safety and Security Industry Programme (SSIP) 2020. The SSIP 2020 is led by the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA), Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB) and done in collaboration with JTC. The three trials were conducted over a period of 12 months from September 2016, and are aimed at using data analytics and security insights to address Singapore's safety and security needs. The trials involved early detection of suspicious behaviour, off-site security clearance of authorised personnel and on-the-spot enrolment for first-time visitor access to controlled areas. In the first trial, NEC provided and tested a system that utilised its high performance NeoFace® Facial Recognition software together with the Intelligent Complex Event Processing engine which correlates audio and video analytics, to detect suspicious behaviour and identify Persons of Interest (POIs) in both indoor and outdoor areas. The second trial facilitated off-site
security clearance for entry of authorised personnel into Jurong Island, thus reducing congestion at checkpoints. NEC provided and tested a Bus Sensors Monitoring Management System using customised tamper-proof security sensors to prevent un-authorised opening of vehicle doors during bus journeys. The third trial tested the feasibility of an automated system to provide a more efficient method of enrolling first-time visitors for entry into Jurong Island. The system leveraged NEC’s world-leading biometric solution to expedite clearance of such visitors via onthe-spot facial and fingerprint recognition enrolment at car inspection bays. For all the 3 trials, the technologies provided real-time monitoring and alerts to the simulated Command Centre, to inform the authorities of activities which may require law enforcement action. As one of the world leaders in ICT and Public Safety solutions, NEC hopes to further collaborate with the government to address heightened security threats in the areas of critical infrastructure, border control and city surveillance for a safer and more secure Singapore.

Motorola to Acquire Avigilon By Jon Cropley Principal Analyst, Video Surveillance, IHS Markit
otorola has entered into an agreement to acquire Avigilon, one of the world’s largest suppliers of professional video surveillance equipment. Rumors about Avigilon being acquired have been circulating in the industry for years. Many expected one of Avigilon’s competitors to acquire it. Instead, Motorola Solutions, a company with limited current involvement in the video surveillance market, has stepped in. Motorola’s focus on public safety projects is likely to have been a major motivation for the acquisition. City surveillance is an important element of public safety. Professional video surveillance equipment revenue has been growing faster in the city surveillance sector than in the rest of the market in recent years. IHS Markit forecasts this will continue, with the city surveillance sector growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11.1 percent to 2021, and the total market growing at a CAGR of 6.8 percent. IHS Markit estimates that Avigilon was the eighth largest supplier of professional video surveillance equipment in 2016 with over 2 percent of a global market worth $15.4 billion. The announcement to acquire Avigilon comes after a string of acquisitions by Motorola over the past three years. Some notable recent acquisitions include the UK TETRA operator Airwave, the US-based 911 business of Airbus DS Communications, Kodiak (a push-to-talk provider) and Spillman (a public safety software provider). Given these deals and planned acquisition of Avigilon, it’s clear that Motorola is aiming to increase activity in the wider public safety and ‘safe city’ market, moving beyond its emergency communications focus of the past. Traction of national public safety broadband networks such as ESN and FirstNet, which facilitate video integration, further support this strategic play. IHS Markit estimates Motorola held approximately 7 percent of the nearly $5 billion command and control technologies and services market in 2017, making it the largest supplier to this market. 74

Smartphone Face ID Meaning more than 1 billion fewer fingerprint sensors will be shipped from 2017 to 2021 By Jamie Fox – Principal Analyst, LEDs and Lighting, IHS Markit
he launch of Face ID means that Apple’s consumption of fingerprint sensors will most likely almost entirely stop by 2021. More than 200 million fingerprint sensors would have been required each year had Apple continued to support Touch ID in its iPhone releases. The launch of Face ID will also reduce fingerprint sensor shipments to other manufacturers already looking to replace fingerprint sensors with a new solution. Rather than replacing fingerprint sensors, some manufacturers will retain fingerprint sensors in at least some smartphones, or use iris technologies or 3D face solutions in addition to a fingerprint, rather than to replace it. This latest biometric shake-up is leading the sensor industry into a time of significant threats and opportunities.
●● The fingerprint sensors market is facing a major disruption following the introduction of Face ID, a facial recognition system designed and developed by Apple Inc. for its iPhone X, along with the forthcoming arrival of in-display sensors and Chinese vendors winning market share from Western vendors. ●● Overall, Apple’s decision to replace Touch ID with Face ID will lead to 1.1 billion fewer fingerprint sensors produced by the end of 2021 than if Apple had maintained Touch ID in iPhones. ●● This estimate is the combined total from both Apple and other competitors that will follow with their own 3D face-recognition solutions. This assessment is based on mobile handsets only; it does not include lesser effects of Face ID on other fingerprint sensor markets, such as notebooks and tablets.
ingerprint sensor suppliers now have to deal with significant internal disruption within the market for fingerprint sensors itself. As the market moves
SecurityLink India ■ March 2018
to under-glass sensing, ultrasonic and optical sensors will replace capacitive sensors that cannot send signals through glass. Qualcomm already had at least two ultrasonic design wins in 2016, with Xiaomi and LeEco; while Synaptics recently announced its first optical-sensor design win. Further announcements can be expected to follow on this front throughout 2018. Over the next two-to-three years, the fingerprint sensor market is likely to move toward a true ‘in-display’ solution, where the sensor is not just under the display, but also integrated into the display itself. These sensors will likely be able to recognize fingerprints in a large area of the display or even the entire display, rather than solely on a fingerprintsensor button.
n the early years of the fingerprint sensor market, Synaptics and Fingerprint Cards dominated – especially from 2014 through 2015. Although they comprised most of the shipments, Apple, which is purely a captive market, was also one of the leading producers. However in 2016 and 2017, new competitors also entered the market and gained share. Goodix is the largest of these companies, and it is challenging Fingerprint Cards for the lead position in the market in 2017. Silead has also won share in China in 2016 and 2017, while Egistec has gained design wins at Samsung. In 2018 there may also be newcomers to the market such as InvenSense, which was acquired by TDK. Recent competition has driven commoditization in capacitive sensors, leading to lower packaged sensor prices, which fell under $2 in 2017.
he market for fingerprint sensors in mobile phones is not forecast to grow as quickly as it did in 2015 and 2016. In fact, revenue and profits are actually forecast to decline through 2021. Fingerprint sensor makers are therefore looking for new markets, and they hope to see good growth in fingerprint sensor sales for smart cards starting in 2018. Other fingerprint sensor markets expected to grow in the future include automotive and door locks, which could turn out to be big long-term opportunities for the industry.

INTERPOL Digital Security Challenge ‘Internet of Things’ Cyber Risks Tackled
o you know how to protect your webcam from being hacked? Would you know if a cybercriminal was using your printer to carry out cyberattacks? While most of us are aware of the dangers that cybercriminals can pose to our computers and mobile phones and take steps to protect them, we seldom consider how these threats can affect the growing number of Internetconnected devices we use in our daily lives.
The ‘Internet of Things’
ll devices which can connect to the Internet – collectively called the ‘Internet of Things’ or IoT – are potentially at risk of a cyberattack. Everyday personal items like video cameras, refrigerators and televisions can be used by cybercriminals for malicious means. Tips for safeguarding IoT devices: ●● Change the factory default passwords – these can be the same for hundreds or thousands of devices, making it easy for criminals to hack; ●● Regularly update all software; ●● Disable features which allow the device to be accessed remotely; ●● Take extra care when buying used devices – you don’t know what the previous owner installed on the device. 78
Cyberattacks targeting or using IoT devices have increased significantly in the past two years, according to several reports from the private cybersecurity industry. An example was the Mirai botnet, which in 2016 infected tens of thousands of devices, mostly Internet routers, with weak password security. These were then used in coordinated distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks against websites worldwide including a university and several media sites. In the world of cybercrime, the number of IoT devices a criminal has access to is seen as a sign of their status. Although police around the world are developing the skills necessary to forensically examine computers and mobile phones, they are often not aware of how to collect evidence from other connected devices. The latest edition of the INTERPOL Digital Security Challenge tackled this threat, with 43 cybercrime investigators and digital forensics experts from 23 countries investigating a simulated cyberattack on a bank launched through an IoT device. “Cybercrime investigations are becoming more and more complex and operational exercises such as the Digital Security Challenge, which simulate some of the hurdles that investigators face every day, are vital for the development of our capacities,” said Peter SecurityLink India ■ March 2018
Goldgruber, Secretary General of the Austrian Ministry of the Interior.
Meeting the challenge
n the scenario, cybercriminals attacked a bank in an attempt to steal large sums of money. The investigators analysed the bank’s computers to identify the date, time and files where the malware installed by the criminals. Through this digital forensic examination, the teams discovered the malware was contained in an e-mail attachment sent via a webcam which had been hacked, and not directly from a computer. This is an emerging modus operandi, as it is more difficult to identify the source of the attack. Once the teams accessed the digital data held by the compromised webcam, they identified the command and control server being used to remotely control the device to conduct the cyberattack. Further evidence led to the identification of a second command and control server, and the investigators identified technical vulnerabilities of the servers which could be used to prevent further attacks. Noboru Nakatani, Executive Director of the INTERPOL Global Complex for Innovation said the scenario provided a learning experience on how to conduct real-world investigations more effectively. “The ever-changing world of cybercrime is constantly presenting new
challenges for law enforcement, but we cannot successfully counter them by working in isolation. “A multi-stakeholder approach which engages the expertise of the private sector is essential for anticipating new threats and ensuring police have access to the technology and knowledge necessary to detect and investigate cyberattacks,” said Mr Nakatani.
onducted annually, INTERPOL’s Digital Security Challenge helps police worldwide develop the skills necessary to tackle the latest cybercrime threats. The first two events in 2016 and 2017 simulated cyber blackmail involving bitcoin and a ransomware attack. This year’s three-day (19-21 February) event was organized in close
cooperation with the INTERPOL National Central Bureau in Vienna and private sector partners NEC Corporation and Cyber Defense Institute. “NEC has contributed as a strategic partner to INTERPOL’s commitment to improve the cybersecurity skills of investigators throughout the world. For the third year, NEC is honored to have helped develop the Digital Security Challenge by providing our expertise at this cutting-edge event,” said Kozo Matsuo, Vice President of NEC Corporation’s Cyber Security Strategy Division. Training sessions to develop participants’ practical knowledge on IoT device analysis and the latest trends in malware-related crime were delivered by specialists from NEC Corporation, InfoSec, Meiya Pico, SECOM, Kaspersky Lab and Trend-
Micro. Support was also provided by the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC). Kenji Hironaka, President of Cyber Defense Institute said, “We are proud to have provided forensic content and technical support during all three INTERPOL Digital Security Challenge events. We will continue assisting law enforcement around the world to enhance their cybercrime investigation capabilities.”
Protecting the device
ost people use anti-virus products and update their software and programmes regularly on their computers and mobile phones to protect them from cyberthreats. But few people take the same precautions to secure their connected devices, leaving them vulnerable to attacks.
How Catastrophic Events are Changing
Mass-Notification System Market By Robert Brooks – Analyst, Security and Building Technologies, IHS Markit
n the Americas, hurricanes, tornadoes and earthquakes are occurring more frequently, so unimpeded mass communication during these events is critical. MNS software is often employed so companies can communicate with their employees, federal agencies, university students and the general public. More channels of communication available in these types of events, means more people can reach safety faster and more lives can be saved. In Western Europe, the second-largest market for MNS software, weather-related incidents occur less often,
so the need for MNS software is lower than in the Americas. While individual countries might deal with specific weather threats – like blizzards and freezes in Sweden and flooding in the UK – in 2017 the United States alone experienced four major hurricanes. Mass-notification system (MNS) software used in emergency communication, the primary segment used during a catastrophic event, is expected to grow in the Americas at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.8 percent from 2017 to 2021, reaching $293.1 million in 2021.

test-cycle option. While this is a dramatic example of human error, there is a continuing need to improve the user interfaces of these systems to avoid unnecessary public panic in the future.
Privacy laws and regulations slow cloud-based MNS software adoption across Europe
Due to heightened terrorist activity in Europe, and with US-based multinational companies moving to Western Europe, the MNS software emergency communication market in EMEA is expected to grow at a CAGR of 11.4 percent from 2017 to 2021, reaching $41.6 million in 2021.
FedRAMP opens the door for cloud-based solutions
ederal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) is a US government program providing a new standardized approach to security assessment, authorization and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services. While this certification is not mandated by law, it will certainly affect how software-as-a-service (SaaS) and cloud vendors perform business with federal government agencies – increasing MNS software sales by the federal government, because nearly all vendors in this industry will switch to cloud-based solutions. 80
Once a company is certified by FedRAMP, additional measures to buy or maintain vendors’ solutions is required. This cost savings will appeal to many government agencies as they look at the total cost to own a system. Western European governments will continue to use on-premises or hybrid solutions, because they are constrained by local laws and regulations surrounding the use of personal information and privacy. A majority of cloud-based MNS software market leaders are located in the US, which creates additional lag time for cloud systems to be purchased in European countries.
New MNS platforms can reduce human error
here is an obvious and growing need for more user-friendly system interfaces. For example, during a regulated standard test of Hawaii’s emergency missile warning system in January 2018, an employee selected the option to send out a full missiledefense alert, instead of choosing the SecurityLink India ■ March 2018
ncreasing acts of terrorism across Western Europe and North Africa over the past two years have forced central governments to investigate new and innovative ways to keep the general public safe. While most investment goes toward security cameras, access control, security doors and tough perimeter security, some governments will also choose to buy MNS software to facilitate communication between first responders and security teams. Privacy issues need to be addressed on a country-by-country basis, including the location of servers hosting cloud-based platforms. In Germany for example, MNS software providers must comply with the ‘German work first’ rule. This rule was implemented by the German government, because it did not want any German citizen’s information to be contained outside the country. Each country in the European market has different rules about hosted systems, which adds another layer of complexity to selling cloud-based systems in Europe.

End-to-End Security, Day After Day C
ybercrime – one of the world’s biggest crimes goes nearly unnoticed. The Internet of Things makes mobility, businesses and industries more connected, but it also leaves them more vulnerable to cybercrime. Online hacking has become so widespread that, by 2021, it is estimated that the cost of cybercrime damages will be $6 trillion annually.* All it takes for a hacker is finding a single weak link, from the outside or more commonly inside, in a surveillance network to gain access to, and jeopardize an entire data system. To cancel out this risk, employ a data security system that’s been configured by experts with vast cybersecurity knowledge to make it completely effective from end-to-end.
Partners in crime prevention
he reputation of Genetec and Bosch in the field of mission-critical video security projects is constantly growing. Having access to the video management system (VMS) expertise of Genetec and Bosch’s innovative surveillance cameras gives customers the upper hand over the hackers, because
Bosch cameras are fully integrated with Genetec systems, resulting in an endto-end data security solution incorporating all Bosch network video surveillance cameras, plus Genetec Archiver and Security Center. All network-wide communications between Bosch cameras and Genetec Archiver and Security Center are assigned an authentication key. This electronic signature enables the system to verify the legitimacy of network components like cameras or storage units, and viewing clients, ensuring that an infrastructure of trust is built before network-wide communications start.
The best form of protection is encryption
ybercrime is one of the greatest threat to every company in the world,* so an effective and reliable method of safeguarding the video security infrastructure is needed. This is why encryption of data streams and stored data is vital. All Bosch IP-cameras have a built-in Trusted Platform Module (TPM) to safely store cryptographic keys used for authentication ensuring trustworthy communications between all network components and encryption of all video data. All cryptographic operations, for authentication and encryption, are only executed inside the unique built-in Trusted Platform Module (TPM). Encrypted video data is then sent from the camera to the Genetec Archiver using SRTP (Secure Real-Time Transport Protocol). Additional security is established via a ‘permissioning’ scheme based on privileges accumulated by specific users.
Synchronized – Centralized – Better protected
ecause Genetec Security Center integrates with Active Directory,
SecurityLink India ■ March 2018
user management can be monitored and centralized at Windows level. As well as individual users, user groups from Active Directory can be synchronized with Security Center, whilst new users will automatically inherit existing Security Center privileges defined for that group.
Securing cameras, management software, and clients
asswords are still an essential layer of security, but the Genetec Archiver also uses a client certificate (which
can be signed by a trusted third party and is factory-installed) to authenticate themselves to the Bosch IP camera. In addition, only Bosch-approved firmware updates will be accepted, and any cryptographic operations are only executed inside the unique built-in Trusted Platform Module (TPM). Certificates are less at risk from hacking, which is why Genetec uses certificate authentication for its Security Center management software and clients. The video management systems interact directly with the Bosch camer-
as using certificates for authentication, and because stored data stays encrypted and data is transmitted via SRTP (Secure Real-time Transport Protocol) confidentiality and data protection are guaranteed. Using SRTP throughout the whole video security infrastructure enables customers to set up a secured multi-cast network, and get security and good network scalability at the same time. Together, Bosch and Genetec provide one of the world’s best data security solutions.
School Security Systems Industry US Market Overview By Jim Dearing – Security and Building Technologies, Senior Analyst, IHS Markit
ith the growing number of schools in the United States with video surveillance, electronic access control and other traditional security systems, the number of potential “greenfield” projects for suppliers falls. Declining numbers of new security system installations will lead to slowing market growth over the next five years. Even so, security manufacturers are looking to implement the following new security technologies to improve school safety, which would also help reignite market growth:
ly lack any form of effective automated response. Adoption of facial recognition technology would allow the surveillance system to proactively search for potential threats, and alert school administrators and security staff about unrecognized individuals in the building. Unfortunately, affordable facial recognition technologies are often unable to adequately recognize the number of faces in a typical school; plus, these systems can place a large strain on a school’s information technology network.

cal database – for example, a student directory – would allow the access rights of former staff, and students who have been expelled or already graduated, to be removed automatically. However, access control providers may find it difficult to get permission to access student records and other sensitive data. Education administrators may also be uncomfortable with possibly creating a potential avenue of cyberattack.

●● The education sector of the market for security equipment and services reached $2.7 billion in revenue in 2017. As most schools have already implemented surveillance systems and access control systems, the market is expected to grow an average of just 1 percent annually, reaching $2.8 billion by 2021. ●● According to survey data from the National Center for Education tatistics, the proportion of schools deploying video surveillance systems has risen from 20 percent in 1999 to over 70 percent in 2013. Likewise, the proportion of schools actively controlling the entrances to their buildings has risen from 75 percent to over 90 percent. ●● Despite advancements in the level of security used on school premises, the number mass shootings at US schools has remained relatively constant throughout the past 30 years. When looking specifically at secondary schools, the number of mass shootings has reached an unprecedented high in the past five years. ●● New technologies are now currently being investigated to improve safety at schools, including facial recognition, logical and physical security identity management integration and high-security classroom doors. numerous safe spaces throughout the building in emergencies. It’s also true, though, that purchasing thousands of doors would be expensive. Fire regulations often dictate that key entrances and exits remain fail-safe during emergencies. Locking and unlocking doors multiple times would also disrupt teaching.
4. Weapons checks using metal detectors or x-ray machines at school entrances
sing metal detectors or x-ray machines at entrances along the school perimeter makes bringing weapons into the school much more difficult. However, schools often have multiple entrances, which means each school would require multiple detectors or x-ray machines – both of which are expensive. The school would also need to hire additional security staff to operate each machine. Securing entrances in this manner would also mean long queues would form after breaks and lunchtime, reducing the free time of students and staff.

Maintaining a consistent and effective security
SecurityLink India ■ March 2018
Today’s organizations are challenged by the speed at which the shift to public cloud is occurring. Driven by the demands of the business, many organizations deploy cloud infrastructure quickly and develop cloud-based applications without consideration for the cybersecurity implications. The advancements announced today will enable our customers to fully embrace all of the benefits provided by the cloud while ensuring that their critical information is protected and that successful cyberattacks are prevented – Lee Klarich Chief Product Officer, Palo Alto Networks posture in these multi-cloud environments becomes especially cumbersome because the security capabilities that are native to cloud providers can only be configured to protect the infrastructure for which it was developed. These native capabilities must also be supplemented for effective cyber breach prevention, and failure to do so could leave an organization vulnerable to data loss or exposure. The cloud evolution demands a new model of cybersecurity that is specifically designed to address its nuances; provide frictionless deployment and management of effective security capabilities; and enable security, operations, networking and development teams to meet the demands of agile organizations. Customers of Palo Alto Networks benefit from consistent security for modern cloud environments including: ●● Consistent protections across locations and clouds: Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform will extend cloud workload protections to the Google® Cloud Platform, in addition to enhanced capabilities for AWS® and Azure® environments. ●● Cloud-resident management: Panorama™ network security management will be supported in all major clouds, offering simplified and centrally managed deployment and management for all Palo Alto Networks next-generation firewalls and VM-Series virtualized next-generation firewalls, regardless of form factor or location. ●● Automation integrations for frictionless workflows in multi-cloud environments: Enhanced auto-scaling for AWS and added support for Azure security center and Google cloud deployment manager will simplify security deployments and enable scaling based on changing cloud demands. Integrations with Terraform® and Ansible® will 94
automate workflows and policy management. ●● Continuous data security and compliance for all three major clouds: New protections will be provided by Aperture™ security service to enable discovery and monitoring of cloud resources, guard against sensitive data loss, enable monitoring for risky or suspicious administrator behavior, and provide additional protection against security misconfigurations and malware propagation. ●● Prevention of zero-day attacks: Traps™ advanced endpoint protection will prevent zero-day attacks for Linux workloads across all major clouds, in addition to the existing support of Windows® workloads. Updates to VM-Series virtualized next-generation firewalls, Aperture security service, Panorama and Traps are targeted for general availability in March 2018.

installed aboard helicopters, UAVs and fixed-wing mission aircraft. Its superior precision and target accuracy make it the sensor of choice for surveillance of large sea and coastal areas against piracy, trafficking or illicit intrusion. “HENSOLDT capitalizes on decades of experience in airborne and space radar,” explains HENSOLDT CEO Thomas Müller, “Thus we are able to translate our unique radar capabilities into an innovative product which gives defence and security forces more and better information to counter threats to their citizens’ safety and well-being.” Due to its software-defined radar modes and electronic beam steering, PrecISR can fulfil different tasks virtually at the same time. It is able to detect, track and classify thousands of objects and thus literally find the ‘needle in a haystack.’ Because of its compact design and the fact that all power consuming parts are located outside of the airframe, the airborne platform integration of PrecISR is simplified significantly compared to other radars. PrecISR is in the fullscale development phase. A fully functional flying demonstrator is expected to exist in about one year’s time and a series product in 2020.
PrecISR™ New Airborne Surveillance Radar PrecISR uses new technologies to detect threats on the ground, at sea and in the air
ENSOLDT is developing an innovative airborne multimission surveillance radar which will provide armed forces and border protection authorities with unprecedented situational awareness and extremely short reaction times. The software-defined radar named PrecISR™ translates latest achievements in active array and digital receiver technology into a scaleable high-performance sensor which can be
Delivering Powerful New Benefits
avestore, the British developer of innovative openplatform and highly secure Linux-based video management software (VMS), has launched v6.10 enabling simplified camera setup alongside new features and performance enhancements. Automatic camera configuration has been introduced for ONVIF compatible cameras, greatly reducing the time it takes to set up systems on-site. Integrators can now simply discover all cameras on the network and apply common ONVIF stream settings for each camera as a Wavestore generat-

ed profile, without having to use the camera’s setup screens. For projects with a large number of servers, systems integrators can simply create a single customised configuration file and roll it out across all Wavestore units, greatly reducing the time spent when commissioning larger projects.
in-breed third-party access control technology. Furthermore, significant improvements have been made to Wavestore’s Honeywell Galaxy Interface integration, including the ability to trigger custom events from the panel using SIA level 4, and a new function to use new event types to automatically react on an alarm.
avestore’s VMS already delivers lip-synchronised audio as standard but v6.10 fully integrates compatible ONVIF cameras with built-in microphones and speakers to be used as part of a cost-effective two-way audio system. Operators simply click the microphone button on the WaveView client for an individual camera, or a group of cameras, to converse with people or broadcast messages across a site quickly and easily. Audio is included in each channel license and recorded onto a separate track, which is time synchronised and can be played back with associated video from any selected camera.
Minimal joystick control latency
n addition, major improvements have been made to minimise the latency when using joystick controls, a common problem for network based security systems, providing users with accurate control of connected ONVIF PTZ cameras and Axis’ native HTTP PTZ protocol. Wavestore v6.10 also introduces a new ‘recording less than intended’ event rule that can be applied to individual cameras. If a configured recording period will exceed the available storage, and previous footage is in danger of being overwritten, then an event can be triggered such as sending an e-mail to an administrator.
The success of Wavestore’s VMS depends more than ever on our flexibility, adaptability and responsiveness to the needs of our customers,” says Julian Inman, Head of Product Management, “Many of the enhancements we are delivering in v6.10 are in direct response to customer feedback as Wavestore’s VMS is used in an ever-increasing number of projects around the World.” Wavestore has also introduced a host of new third-party integrations to its VMS and welcomes new technology partners to its ongoing integration programme. These include SALTO ProAccess SPACE access control software and Texecom Premier Elite intruder alarm solutions, combining leading video management from Wavestore with best96

QVR Pro A professional NVR on NAS with storage expandability and an intelligent IoT-based event management platform
NAP® Systems, Inc., has released QVR Pro , a surveillance app that runs alongside the NAS OS as an independent operating environment. QVR Pro turns a QNAP NAS into a professional NVR solution with the advantages of NAS storage expandability and integration with a wide range of IoT devices for an enhanced surveillance experience. QNAP also released a mobile version of QVR Pro Client, providing users greater management and monitoring convenience while on the go.
Independent storage and scalable capacity
VR Pro has a ‘dedicated storage space’ on NAS to ensure that the storage is fully reserved for QVR Pro and the performance will not be impacted by other applications
on NAS. As the need for storage space grows with time, users can easily expand their storage capacity by connecting QNAP expansion enclosures to their NAS or by using the unused storage of another QNAP NAS.
Smarter event management system
NAP provides various APIs for users to quickly integrate a wide range of cameras, configure event alerts and recordings. IoT devices can also be used to make the surveillance system securer and more intelligent.
Powerful camera management and support
VR Pro supports thousands of camera models from over 140 brands and a variety of image formats, allowing users to quickly build different surveillance solutions tailored to their environments while providing convenient camera management. Users can search for cameras over different networks, add/ manage cameras in batches, use 360-degree cameras, and assign dedicated network interfaces to cameras.
Flexible recording space allocation and failover capabilities
sers can pre-allocate storage capacity and assign dedicated storage space for each camera’s recordings based on the camera’s monitoring scope and importance. To ensure uninterruptable recordings, users can set a spare volume in the recording space. If the original volume fails, recordings can be stored on the spare volume.
Cross-platform monitoring and management with QVR Pro Client
he QVR Pro Client can be installed on Windows® and Mac® devices or in HD Station on QNAP NAS. Users can flexibly switch from live view or playback mode to take full control over monitored areas.
