I had not researched this before. The standard's Scope states:
"This Standard specifies the interconnection structure and communication protocols structure of information transport, switch and control and the basic requirements and security requirements for transport, switch and control and technical requirements for control, transport process and protocol interfacing etc.
This Standard is applicable to the scheme design, system testing, acceptance of security and protection video monitoring network s and urban monitor and control alarming network system and related equipment R&D and manufacture."
Is GB/T 28181 a security concern, is it required to specifically mentioning "Non compliance to GB/T 28181 " protocol as mandatory in the technical specifications of the cameras
We've been doing some investigation into this and got feedback from manufacturers who implemented this.
From what we have reviewed, this is not really a 'security' focused standard, more like 'ONVIF' in the sense that it is about communication / integration.
However, a major difference, technically, is that it uses SIP.
In practice, the main application appears to be connecting cameras (using SIP) to different government systems. As Huawei explains about the motivation of the standard:
In actual scenarios, when an upper-level public security department handles and commands protection work and major incidents, its lower-level public security departments need to provide onsite video surveillance support. As video surveillance systems are deepening and expanding, system integration demands are growing. Vertically, video surveillance systems at province, city, and district levels need to be cascaded. Horizontally, video and images need to be shared across regions and industries.
Huawei also provides a list of code used:
And here is what claims to be an English copy of the GB/T 28181-2016 standard.
Does anyone have any other details or corrections to this?
