Hikvision, the world’s leading IoT solutions provider with video as its core technology, has been designated as a Common Vulnerability and Exposures (CVE) Numbering Authority (CNA). This appointment enables the hi-tech security solutions provider to assign CVE identifiers to flaws reported.

As of 10 February 2018, Hikvision can assign CVE identifiers to vulnerabilities found in its own products and firmware, regardless of whether the issues have been disclosed by Hikvision employees or third-party experts. This is the first step towards vulnerabilities disclosure, verification and solutions release, and the appointment will help speed up the problem-solving process for potential security risks. The announcement is a vote of confidence in Hikvision from within the industry.

 “We are honoured to become a CNA and will keep collaborating with MITRE, to deal with potential security vulnerabilities in a timely and efficient manner,” said Mr. Bin Wang, Chief Officer at Hikvision Network and Information Security Laboratory and Network Security Department.

“Our support of the cyber security vulnerabilities disclosure practices is driven by our deep-seated commitment to supporting and empowering the commercial and civil communities,” said Mr. Daniel Huang, Hikvision Oceania Managing Director, remarked.
