Hacking IP Camera

1 min readMar 15, 2023

RTSP is Known as Real-time Streaming Protocol and is supported by all IP cameras, network video recorders, hybrid video recorders, and many more modern high-definition digital video recorders.

The protocol is similar to the HTTP protocol and commonly used for streaming media content. It uses some basic security mechanisms as one has noticed in HTTP-based communication.

In this write up I will present a real demo of hacking into the camera through a video series.

we will describe the following points:

  1. How to use a threat intel platform to find the IP of such devices
  2. We will also show how to reverse the firmware of these cameras
  3. How to find juicy information stored in such cameras
  4. Then how to use python to automate all these things for POC

P Note: Some of the exclusive python scripts this time won't put up in my GitHub repo due to their possible misuse.

Here is video series I:

Here is the video series: II(knowing cameras Firmware)

In my final series of videos, I will take the reversing in deep from start to finish so stay tuned!!

let me know ur thoughts in case you like this series of camera hacking

Till then see ya!!!
