Swissbit Ishield Camera Encryption & Protection

New microSD card enables encryption and access protection of video and image data for numerous applications

Swissbit is expanding its range of hardware-based security solutions with the launch of iShield Camera.

The new unique microSD product series has been specially developed for the encryption and access protection of video data and image capture. It is host-agnostic and can therefore be used with a wide range of camera types and functions.

Thanks to its plug-&-play features, iShield Camera can be easily integrated into existing systems. This allows manufacturers and users of drones, body cameras or dashcams to add an additional security feature to their models, specifically to prevent unauthorized access to sensitive camera data or to ensuring compliance with legal requirements. In addition to AES 256-bit encryption and user authentication via PIN, iShield Camera features full HD video support and industrial-grade temperature resistance.

Key Features include:

  • 16GB & 32GB capacities
  • Encryption: AES 256 bit
  • User authentication: configurable PIN
  • High performance for full HD video support (UHS-I, speed class 10)
  • Lifetime: 3.000 overwrite cycles for video recording (85 TBW @32GB)
  • Data retention (with non-powered storage): 10 years
  • Industrial Temp (-40…85°C)
  • FAT32 formatted
“With iShield Camera, we offer a simple and retrofittable security solution that is compatible with common video and image recording devices and requires no installation effort due to its plug-&-play functionality,” explains Christian Ullrich, Senior Product Manager Embedded IoT Solutions at Swissbit. “Manufacturers or system integrators can therefore cost-effectively equip their cameras with an extra layer of security, delivering sustainable benefits to professional end users such as insurance companies, civil authorities or security bodies.”

Robust, durable and powerful

iShield Camera is available in 16GB and 32GB capacities and is UHS-I Class 10 rated for full HD video recordings. iShield Camera also uses high-quality components to provide durability and robustness. The microSD cards are MLC-based and specified for an industrial temperature range of -40°C to +85°C.

The iCCT software can be downloaded from free of charge.
