WSJ Investigates Hikvision

Author: John Honovich, Published on Nov 13, 2017

The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) has released a detailed investigation into Hikvision's government ownership and cybersecurity problems, hitting the paper's front page.

Given the WSJ's global readership (42 million monthly readers, 2+ million paid subscribers), the paper has the reach to make Hikvision's actions known to powerful political and business leaders globally.

Growing Global Investigations

This adds to a series of global publications investigating Hikvision, including:

US Gov Official 'Stunning'

The WSJ quotes the chairperson of the "U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission, which was created by Congress to monitor the national-security implications of trade with China" on Hikvision saying:

The fact that it’s at a U.S. military installation and was in a very sensitive U.S. embassy is stunning. We shouldn’t presume that there are benign intentions in the use of information-gathering technology that is funded directly or indirectly by the Chinese government.

The risk is severe for Hikvision. The US government already bans Huawei equipment. By contrast, Hikvision's government is ownership and control is far more direct and clear than Huawei. To the extent that the WSJ has made this a public issue, Hikvision risks greater regulation, barriers or even outright banning.

Cybersecurity Problems for Hikvision

Not only did the WSJ investigate Hikvision's government ownership, they tracked their cybersecurity problems, noting and citing IPVM:

The Hikvision flaws identified by the Department of Homeland Security affected more than 200 camera models and potentially tens of millions of shipped devices, estimates John Honovich, editor of IPVM. They made it possible for outsiders to hack into internet-connected Hikvision cameras in just a few steps, according to Mr. Honovich and FireEye, the cybersecurity firm. Hikvision acknowledged the flaws affected some cameras, but dismisses Mr. Honovich’s assertions as “unfounded insinuations and hearsay.”

Hikvision's cavalier response is easily disproven since our analysis is grounded in (1) their own admission of the backdoor 'flaw' impacting multiple series of IP cameras over multiple years of firmware, (2) their claims of producing 55 million cameras just in 2016, and (3) DHS advisory on Hikvision which we easily demonstrated 'in just a few steps' in this video:
