Is this a concern?

Net admin here, could use your input.

Big wig installed 6 network cams, has full control of them, and has not communicated anything to me about them. Like info for management.


I finally get some info, some. They send me IPs which seem to be subnetted to talk only with the DVR. On a 172.x range. I didn’t get any passwords or anything. I asked (out of policy) and still did not receive the info. I don’t even know their models. Too high to see them.

What I want to know, how concerned should I be about my own network’s security having this subnetted sec camera network unmanaged by me?

We are behind standard set up, router NAT, firewall, switch.





> which seem to be subnetted

If you’re the network admin, then who set up the subnet if not you?
