Hanwha Techwin America

Hanwha Techwin America, a global supplier of IP and analog video surveillance solutions, announced that it has received the UL CAP (Cybersecurity Assurance Program) certification for its recently-launched range of IP cameras featuring Wisenet 7 SoC (System on Chip). The UL Cybersecurity Assurance Program (UL CAP) aims to minimize risks by creating standardized, testable criteria for assessing software vulnerabilities and weaknesses in embedded products and systems.

This helps reduce exploitation, address known malware, enhance security controls, and expand security awareness. The program evaluates the security of network-connectable products and vendor processes to help organizations manage their cybersecurity risks and validate their cybersecurity capabilities to the marketplace.

Physical security industry

A long standing and vocal advocate for cybersecurity best practices in the physical security industry, Hanwha is one of the few camera manufacturers in the world to be granted this certification. While the UL CAP certification typically takes 8 to 10 months, Hanwha Techwin was able to meet all of UL’s stringent evaluation criteria in just 3 months thanks to the well-established software development processes already put in place by its dedicated in-house cybersecurity department.

When firmware is installed and a certificate is verified, it uses these encryption keys which can never be reprogramed

Built on 30 years of innovation in video surveillance solutions, the Wisenet 7 custom-built SoCs are designed specifically to address the unique cybersecurity challenges of the security market. Wisenet 7 cameras offer end-to-end cybersecurity with high levels of protection including secure boot, OS, storage, and JTAG, plus a signed firmware/open platform app and more.

Critical infrastructure organizations

Hanwha Techwin established its own device certification issuing system to embed certificates and encryption keys into the product during the manufacturing process. When firmware is installed and a certificate is verified, it uses these encryption keys which can never be reprogramed. This creates a trusted platform module that separates the end-user side of the camera application from the network (Linux).

This OTP (One Time Program) feature provides a unique level of cybersecurity that is secure by default and only possible when utilizing a custom chip. “UL CAP certification is quickly becoming a bidding requirement for both government and critical infrastructure organizations,” said Tom Cook, Senior Vice President at Hanwha Techwin America. “This certification reaffirms Hanwha’s position as a cybersecurity industry leader.”
