An Example Of IT Used For Physical Security

This article in Computer World about video security cameras using IT for surveillance. Unlike traditional surveillance cameras, these cameras actually sit on the network, and -- yes -- they use IP to communicate across that network.

I'm glad they mentioned the IT security implications of cameras on the network. The IP traffic needs to be segregated from the rest of corporate traffic. Otherwise, who knows, snooping eyes on the web could try to see right down your company's hallways.

No way, who would ever do that?
