Avigilon Security Camera Detection

Info Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 5228


The remote host is a security camera.


The remote host is a security camera. The camera streams images to a central server. As this traffic is passed unencrypted, it is possible for a passive listener to "eavesdrop" on the stream and reconstruct the images. It is usually recommended to run this sort of streaming service on a private VLAN.


If possible, use a private VLAN for this sort of traffic.
