Cybersecurity of video surveillance systems

State-of-the-art video surveillance cameras provide multiple ways to connect to wired or wireless data networks. Thanks to their capabilities for recognizing faces, counting people, creating thermal maps, and detecting motion, these smart cameras can also identify the behavior and identity of a person, read vehicle license plates, and much more.
However, security researchers regularly find numerous vulnerabilities in smart cameras. Cybercriminals can exploit these vulnerabilities to spy on the camera owners, manipulate the overall security of networks, or even impact an entire corporate infrastructure.
