Abstract


Surveillance Chess
Hijacking CCTV Cameras in London

London. On the brink of the Olympic Games. Equipped with an interfering transmitter the authors hack surveillance cameras in London and assume control. They replaces the real-time surveillance images with an invitation to play a game of chess. The security staff's surveillance monitor located in the control room becomes a game console. The six minute video shows the intervention from the point of view of the CCTV operator.
