Key generator to reset a Hikvision IP camera's admin password


This is a script to exploit older Hikvision devices' weak password reset key generation. More details and a write-up can be found in this post.


This script requires Python 3.6+ and numpy:

$ pip install --user numpy


Generate a reset key using:

$ ./ <ip>

You can then use the key to reset the admin password using Hikvision's Search Active Devices Protocol tool.
