802.1x for IP Cameras Axis Whitepaper

By: John Honovich, Published on Dec 01, 2009

Axis has released a whitepaper on 802.1x [link no longer available] and its use with Axis's IP cameras. Using 802.1x can prevent 'port hi-jacking' - the threat that a malicious user could disconnect an IP camera and plug a rogue PC onto an organization's network.

The challenges, as Axis mention, is that the IP cameras need to support 802.1x and so do the switches. This can be an issue in IP video deployments as many IP cameras do not offer 802.1x support and neither do many small business, low cost switches.
