The fine folks at @Elcomsoft have discovered yet another security flaw in digital cameras. First it was Canon. This time it’s Nikon – specifically Nikon’s Image Authentication Software.
Elcomsoft researchers found that the way the secure image signing key is being handled in the camera is flawed. This allowed them to extract the original signing key and then produce manipulated images that appear to be legit. I could see this being a huge deal in computer forensics and expert witness work.
“A business associate referred our company to Principle Logic when we were seeking a resource to perform vulnerability /penetration testing for our external and internal networks. We found Kevin Beaver to be professional, well informed, and easy to work with. His testing did not disrupt our networks, and his progress updates were timely.
His final report was very thorough and included security recommendations for our network environment. The executive leadership was so impressed with Kevin’s security expertise, they have extended their agreement to continue to perform periodic testing. We highly recommend Kevin Beaver and Principle Logic as a resource for network security testing.”
