Practical guidance

Modern production equipment is increasingly networked, either as dedicated hardware for IP-based production environments, or to add management and control functions to SDI-based units. Unfortunately, security measures against potential cyber threats have not always kept up with this increased connectivity. Many devices still exhibit a low security threshold inherited from the era of non-connected broadcast hardware – when cybersecurity due diligence was often not a top priority for manufacturers and users.

To help detect potential vulnerabilities in media equipment, the EBU Media Cybersecurity Strategic Programme has established a minimum set of security tests for networked media appliances, defined in Recommendation R 148. These tests can be performed proactively by broadcasters and by system vendors alike, in order to detect potential security vulnerabilities.
