As a defense-in-depth strategy, you can deactivate any unused services and roles to reduce this risk. This reduces the number of active services in your system, and therefore the attack surface.

Procedure

  1. From the Config Tool homepage, open the Video task, and click the Roles and units view.
  2. Select a video unit from the entity browser.
  3. In the Properties tab, clear the unused services.
  4. Click Apply.

Example

For an Axis Q3505-V network camera, the services that should be disabled are UPnP, Bonjour, and link-local address.
