ONVIF Newsletter October 2023


Greetings from Leo Levit,

We’re heading into another jam-packed quarter, with events happening around the globe and ONVIF initiatives underway that continue the standardization of metadata and cloud connectivity. We’re excited to present new opportunities for member collaboration and industry advancement in these key areas.

In the newsletter below, you will read about several more events this fall featuring an ONVIF speaker or presented by ONVIF. These events will help to share our latest activities with audiences on different continents and segments of the security market. In addition, our participation provides opportunities for dialogue with ONVIF representatives, conversations that we consider crucial to our ongoing and future steps as an organization.

Finally, in recognition of Cybersecurity Awareness Month in October, we will be highlighting our first Add-on on our blog and social media channels, which supports configuration for Transport Layer Security encryption between devices and clients. With the final version expected to be released later this year, the ONVIF TLS Configuration Add-on is an important step in ensuring that cybersecurity measures are part of the ONVIF ecosystem and conformance process.

Kind regards,

Leo Levit
Chairman, ONVIF Steering Committee
