Manufacturers are first to plug privacy and security loopholes. Manufacturers cannot simply reduce their investment in technical security to protect against malicious code, cloud encryption, weak password verification, access control, etc. in order to compete in market.
Now, some well-known companies in market have also guaranteed home security information through national secret algorithm data encryption, transmission channels and other aspects to control and improve the security of home data.The state formulates appropriate standards and severely punishes according to law
The government-issued "Public Security Video Surveillance Network Information Security Specification" effectively prevents forgery, falsification and illegal transmission at data level, but there is no single standard for surveillance cameras in civilian market.
The government should implement information security technology standards in home video surveillance as soon as possible and block "illegal eyes" that penetrate privacy through technical barriers.
In addition, relevant departments must strictly enforce rule of law. On one hand, they will crack down hard on behavior of selling scanning software, and on other hand, they will crack down hard on behavior of stealing, sharing, and selling family privacy.
