Bosch/Genetec Video Cybersecurity Partnership Examined (CHAVE)

Author: Brian Karas, Published on Feb 15, 2017

Surveillance products have been relatively weak when it comes to cyber security. Default passwords, open ports, and weak authentication mechanisms led to a wave of exploits.

Now, Bosch and Genetec are working together to deliver a system that is "resilient against unauthorized access, malware, brute force cracking and other exploit techniques."

The two companies described the solution, which Bosch is marketing as CHAVE (Credentialed High Assurance Video Encryption), in a conversation with IPVM.

In this report we describe how CHAVE differs from other security mechanisms, what it adds in terms of costs, and how installation and day to day use vary from other systems.
