A US Army base has specified 70+ Hikvision IP cameras, a month after the WSJ reported a different Army base removed Hikvision IP cameras.
While this is a positive for the Chinese government-owned Hikvision's expansion into the US military, this raises security concerns. Moreover, US Army's Hikvision specifications are so low-end and outdated that it raises concerns about the security of the base.
In this note, we examine the specification and the issues involved.
[UPDATE March 2018: the RFP was canceled.]
