Software material list for axis os: focus on cybersecurity through improved visibility
As the use of IP cameras becomes more widespread, the security of the systems also becomes more important. To ensure this, AXIS Communications has published a software material list that focuses on cybersecurity through enhanced transparency.
Bill of Materials is a comprehensive document that provides detailed information about the software components used in the Axis camera operating system. By improving transparency, customers and partners can better assess the security risk and thus better protect their IP cameras against cyber attacks.
AXIS Communications emphasizes the need to continuously improve cybersecurity and sees the publication of this list as another step in that direction. The compilation is part of an initiative aimed at being more open and transparent in terms of compliance with security standards.
The list also includes information on licenses and copyrights of the software components used to ensure that all licenses are complied with. Conscientiousness and transparency are the key words that were in focus when creating the AXIS Communications material list.
This AXIS Communications initiative is designed to help educate and build confidence in IP camera security. It’s about providing clear and reliable information so customers and partners are able to make informed decisions about protecting their systems.
Focus on cybersecurity through improved transparency
The latest software material list for AXIS OS focuses on cybersecurity through improved transparency. This creates a higher level of trust and traceability for users.
Improved transparency is reflected, among other things, in the disclosure of third-party components used in the software. As a result, potential security vulnerabilities can be quickly identified and remediated. It also facilitates collaboration between developers and users by allowing them to work from a common knowledge base.
To ensure transparency, the software material list is updated and published regularly. It is also freely available to all users. This allows for a comprehensive review of the software, contributing to a higher standard of security.
- Benefits of improved visibility:
- More trust and traceability for users
- Faster identification and remediation of security vulnerabilities
- Simplified collaboration between developers and users
- Higher level of security
AXIS OS software is a key component of networked surveillance systems that can collect and analyze data in real time. With improved visibility, users can be confident that their data is protected at all times.
Regular updates to the software material list ensure that AXIS OS software remains on the cutting edge of cybersecurity technology. This ensures a secure and trusted user experience.
What is AXIS OS?
AXIS OS is an operating system from Axis Communications that is specifically designed for IP video surveillance. It provides a scalable and open platform for networking IP cameras and other network devices.
For improved cybersecurity transparency, Axis Communications has published a bill of materials for AXIS OS software. The list details all components used, giving customers and partners a better understanding of the security of the software.
Components in the material list include OpenSSL, Apache, and OpenSSL FIPS Object Module. By regularly reviewing and updating these components, Axis Communications ensures that AXIS OS is always up to date with cybersecurity threats.
- OpenSSL: open source software for encrypting and decrypting data.

The use of these and other components enables AXIS OS to provide a robust and secure IP video surveillance platform.
Importance of cybersecurity
Cybersecurity is critical as modern society depends on computer networks and constantly brings new technological advances. Securing these systems and data is of paramount importance to protect critical infrastructures such as power grids, hospitals and financial institutions to ensure the well-being of society.
With the increasing number of threats, such as targeted attacks by criminal groups, national intelligence agencies or hacker groups, it is important that businesses and governments take steps to protect their networks and systems. Improved transparency in software development allows security vulnerabilities to be identified early and fixed before damage is done.
To ensure cybersecurity, enterprises and governments must develop a broader strategy to combat cyber threats. This requires collaboration between regulators, businesses and public organizations, as well as compliance with national and international standards and laws to protect data and infrastructure.
- The importance of cybersecurity
- Need to improve transparency in software development
- Call for collaboration between regulators, businesses and public organizations
Ultimately, it comes down to taking cybersecurity seriously and taking appropriate measures to protect digital systems and data. Everyone can do their part by being aware of the threats on the network and being responsible with the confidentiality and integrity of data.
