A Network based Home surveillance/ monitoring system: Router based Deployment and Network Security
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Home surveillance/monitoring systems are widely used nowadays. An intelligent surveillance system can provide multiple functions for uses. The assumption underlying this thesis project is that a home surveillance system can help people manage their homes better.
The thesis presents two investigations into an intelligent home surveillance system implementation. First we will focus on the development of a router platform, which can manage the cameras connected to an intelligent home surveillance system. Such a system will include at least one router, one or more cameras. Some of these cameras will be connected by wireless links. Each camera will be dynamically allocated an IP address. The system will manage and control the various elements of the home surveillance/monitoring system via the network. Second, we will examine potential network security solutions, and choose a suitable solution.
A key result of this thesis project is that SRTP and MIKEY are suitable for use in a home surveillance/monitoring system and together they provide authentication and privacy for the information from the camera (and potentially other information). This privacy is an important aspect of a home surveillance/monitoring system, since improper use of this information could be damaging to the homeowner’s privacy and personal integrity.
