Default Passwords Outlawed in California, US To Follow

By: Dan Gelinas, Published on Oct 09, 2018

A new California bill aimed at improving security for connected devices has been signed into law. The law takes aim especially at passwords on connected devices and will have a significant impact on camera manufacturers, many of whom are not currently compliant.

IPVM interviewed State Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson, who sponsored the bill and she told IPVM the intent is to change requirements nationally:

We think that given our state’s economic importance, any product designed for the United States market is going to comply with these reasonable security requirements.

In this note, we:

  • Share detailed feedback from our interview with Senator Jackson
  • Examine the language of the law
  • Discuss the goals of the law
  • Look at what the impact on existing cameras deployed is
  • Examine why out of California sales are still liable
  • Discuss what penalties manufacturers face for non-compliance
  • Examine who is and is not compliant
  • Share feedback from companies that are not currently compliant including Arecont, Avigilon And DW 
  • Look at the downsides of compliance
  • Examine potential penalties of non-compliance
  • Discuss the national effect this law will have
  • Analyze criticisms of the law
