Video security has recently emerged as an important issue owing to CCTV video image spill accidents over the Internet. KISA recommends the use of encryption protocols for remote access through its guidelines for CCTV personal video information protection. But still, many products do not adhere to the guidelines, and those products are easily exposed to security threats, such as hacking. To solve these security vulnerabilities, this paper proposes a CCTV system that connects from remote locations, and is implemented by using secure shell (SSH) tunneling techniques. The system enhances security by transmitting encrypted data by using SSH. By using the tunneling technique, it also solves the problem of not being able to access a CCTV recorder located inside a firewall. For evaluation of the system, this paper compares various CCTV remote access schemes and security. Experimental results on the effectiveness of the system show it is possible to obtain remote access without a significant difference in transmission quality and time. Applying the method proposed in this paper, you can configure a system secure from the threats of hacking.
