Josh Schroeder: CCTV: Setup Attack Vectors and Laws SkyDogCon 2013 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Josh Schroeder: CCTV: Setup Attack Vectors and Laws
SkyDogCon 2013

Ever wonder how to setup a CCTV Digital Video Recording security system in your own home or apartment? Well in this talk I will go through how I set one up in my own apartment.

First, I will go over basic setup on how I planned out this project and current price points for entry. This will include what to be mindful of in the way of camera quality, disk space and other features.

In the second part, I will cover attack vectors I considered while setting the system. For example, wireless cameras could be disabled with radio frequency jammers and an outdoor cameras could have the power cut if not correctly secured in conduit.

Finally, I will go over things that you should have in mind in the legal realm for this kind of project. Be forewarned; I am not a lawyer or judge, but I got advise from a NC judge while in school and I have done research to find laws for VA, DC, MD, TN, and NC that cover recording and wiretapping laws. I will follow it up with court cases that surround these laws in order to back up some of the conclusions and decisions I made to build this system.
