ONVIF, the leading global standardisation initiative for IP-based physical security products, is pleased to announce that Per Björkdahl, chairman of its Steering Committee, will be the featured presenter in the webinar Physical Security, IoT and Open Standards, which runs on 17 August at 4.00 pm BST. The webinar is hosted by Memoori, an independent market research company that studies the physical security, smart buildings and energy management markets.
The webinar will examine how the Internet of Things and cloud computing have already shaped the physical security industry, and will also cover the development of ONVIF’s profiles.
Cyber security from a physical security standards viewpoint will be considered, focusing on how open standards can help secure sensitive communications between devices. ONVIF’s cyber security strategies and future profile developments will also be discussed, and there’ll be a brief interactive Q&A session to close the hour-long presentation.
“This webinar is for end users, integrators and anyone else who’s interested in how ONVIF can be a valuable tool in IoT and other deployments that require secure communications between multiple devices and clients,” explained Björkdahl.

ONVIF releases Profile Q for advanced security
ONVIF has just released Profile Q, the specification that features quick and easy discovery, set-up and configuration of conformant devices as well as advanced security features.
Profile Q offers out-of-the-box functionality for systems integrators and end users with an easy set-up mechanism and basic device level configuration, streamlining the set-up and connection of systems and devices.
Profile Q also supports Transport Layer Security (TLS), a secure communication protocol that allows ONVIF devices themselves to communicate with clients across a network in a way that protects against tampering and eavesdropping.
Until now, Profile Q has been in release candidate status in order to provide industry review and feedback prior to the final release.
“With the final release of Profile Q, integrators and end users can expect out-of-the-box interoperability between ONVIF conformant cameras and video management systems,” said Steven Dillingham, chairman of ONVIF’s Profile Q Working Group.
“Our development of this Profile is an indication of ONVIF’s response to the market’s request for a more streamlined set-up and deployment process.”
