Access control is a set of permissions for a connected camera (or any IoT Device) that specify which users are granted access and the operations they are permitted to perform. Each entry in an Access Control List (ACL) specifies a camera, a user, and an associated access level.
AnyConnect Access Control grants access to only the rights users over public networks (Wifi, LTE etc.). It offers different access levels, simplifying access control management. AnyConnect Access Control is secure, and GDPR-compliant.
AnyConnect Access Control supports 3 access levels:
Once a camera has been onboarded, a User can (via an App) request a “pairing key” from AnyConnect’s cloud service, and send this pairing key to the camera (e.g. via Bluetooth / BLE or WiFi AP / WiFi Direct).
Upon receiving a pairing key, the camera forwards it to AnyConnect’s cloud service. Once AnyConnect’s cloud service validates the pairing key, the Camera and the App’s User and the Camera are “paired”, and AnyConnect’s Access Control service has created an ACL entry.
Provided that they have sufficient access rights, An Owner or Admin User may grant access to and revoke access from other Users. A typical Access Control List may look like this:
When a User requests to access a Camera, for example to Stream live or recorded video, AnyConnect’s cloud service checks for a corresponding Access Control entry before granting or denying access.
