ONVIF Secure Comms Release Protect Device Client Links.
ONVIF Secure Comms Release – ONVIF has introduced the TLS Configuration Add-on (Release Candidate) for secure IP communications between devices and clients.
The draft add-on supports configuration for Transport Layer Security encryption, enabling a VMS to initially configure or update TLS settings in a device to support encrypted communications between device and client.
While ONVIF Profiles are fixed sets of features that enable a functional product to be developed, add-ons are easily adaptable to evolving technology/specification requirements and support version handling for new technology additions or updates.

“The TLS Configuration Add-on Release Candidate is a great case for an add-on,” said Leo Levit, chairman, ONVIF Steering Committee. “It enables ONVIF conformance in a crucial area of security: secure communications between devices and clients.
“TLS and other cybersecurity specifications must constantly be kept up to date, and the add-on concept enables those critical adjustments to be made within the confines of the ONVIF conformance process,” Levit said.
ONVIF offers Profile S for streaming video; Profile G for video recording and storage; Profile C for physical access control; Profile A for broader access control configuration; Profile T for advanced video streaming; Profile M for metadata and events for analytics applications and Profile D for access control peripherals.
