Hanwha Receives UL cybersecurity certification for Wisenet 7 cameras
The UL Cybersecurity Assurance Program (UL CAP) aims to minimize risks by creating standardized, testable criteria for assessing software vulnerabilities and weaknesses

Hanwha Techwin America announced that it has received the UL CAP (Cybersecurity Assurance Program) certification for its recently-launched range of IP cameras featuring Wisenet 7 SoC (System on Chip).
The UL Cybersecurity Assurance Program (UL CAP) aims to minimize risks by creating standardized, testable criteria for assessing software vulnerabilities and weaknesses in embedded products and systems. This helps reduce exploitation, address known malware, enhance security controls, and expand security awareness. The program evaluates the security of network-connectable products and vendor processes to help organizations manage their cybersecurity risks and validate their cybersecurity capabilities to the marketplace.
The Wisenet 7 custom-built SoCs are designed to address cybersecurity challenges of the security market. Wisenet 7 cameras offer end-to-end cybersecurity with high levels of protection including secure boot, OS, storage, and JTAG, plus a signed firmware/open platform app and more. Hanwha Techwin established its own device certification issuing system to embed certificates and encryption keys into the product during the manufacturing process. When firmware is installed and a certificate is verified, it uses these encryption keys which can never be reprogramed. This creates a trusted platform module that separates the end-user side of the camera application from the network (Linux).
“UL CAP certification is quickly becoming a bidding requirement for both government and critical infrastructure organizations,” said Tom Cook, senior vice-president at Hanwha Techwin America in a prepared statement. “This certification reaffirms Hanwha’s position as a cybersecurity industry leader.”
