Hacking IP Cameras

Presenter: Nicholas Starke


Join us for a tour through IP Camera hacking.  We’ll look at three common cameras and discuss what vulnerabilities they have, how those vulnerabilities can be exploited, and what a malicious actor can do with access once established.  Most of the presentation will be live demos with real cameras. After that, we’ll take a look at how the knowledge we gained in the first section helps us to build a Metasploit module for easy exploitation during penetration tests.  Lastly, we’ll conclude with a discussion of overall IP Camera / IP internet of things security measures and countermeasures.


Nick Starke is an Application Security Specialist / Penetration Tester / Security Researcher based in Des Moines, IA. When he is not hacking all the things, he can be found writing music, hanging out with his family, or attending a security meet up in town.
