One of the potential threats to well-meaning Smart City digital transformation- in this case speeding cameras.
As always, just needs attention to detail.
Kaspersky Lab research that found a large number of connected speeding cameras deployed in smart city initiatives were easily hackable. . They suspected many cities are deploying IoT devices to jump on the smart city bandwagon without fully examining how secure the technology is. In their research they found many instances of traffic cameras that were vulnerable to hackers, made by vendors like Redflex Traffic Systems. “We found speedcam IP addresses by pure chance… We decided to check that passwords were being used,” said Vladimir Dashchenko and Denis Makrushin from Kaspersky Lab. “Imagine our surprise when we realized there was no password and the entire video stream was available to all Internet users. Openly broadcast data includes not only the video stream itself, but additional data, such as the geographical coordinates of cameras, as well.”
