Outdoor IP Cameras - How To Protect Against Intrusion?

Hi,

I was wondering how to protect an IP camera that is mounted outdoor against getting access to the customers network.

We have some customers that don't want to have IP cameras outside of the building to be sure that there are no ways to get on the customersnetwork.

Of course we can think of MAC filtering, firewalls, routing, password setting on servers, unsing separate networks, etc. Of course routers that are doing MAC filtering, firewall, can also be attacked

But when the customers network is to be used, this should be protected as good as possible.

But maybe there are others that have best practices for this or are there devices that are designed for this purpose?
