The interaction of consumer devices and the internet, especially in relation to security, has always been tenuous. Where it is in the best interests of companies to produce products that are cheap and accessible, these traits often go against that of security. This investigation undertakes an analysis of one such device – the DCS 930L internet protocol camera from D Link. This camera is analysed for vulnerabilities, with an emphasis on those relating to authentication mechanisms. Several vulnerabilities are identified, and potential attacks based on these are discussed. Solutions or mitigations to these vulnerabilities are presented.
