Custom Signature for Dahua NVR

Hello All,

 

I am working on creating a custome signature for a Dahua NVR that we would like to allow remote access to.  It operates on port 37777 which has been allowed, but traffic still shows up as unknown-tcp and is subsiquently blocked.  Does anyone have experience working with one of these devices or creating a signature for it?  

 

We opened up the rules to allow any application and was able to capture some traffic while using it.  Would this be enough to create a signature?

 

Thank you all in advance!

Re: Custom Signature for Dahua NVR

I'd suggest doing some packet captures of the traffic to see there is something you can use to identify it.

 

a tiny bit of googling suggests that the traffic is not encrypted so depending upon what you find in the captures it may be possible to build a signature using the combination of protocol, port, and pattern matching.

 

if you post a few packet capture samples here, or show us some snippets of what you see during session setup, then the folks who participate in this forum may be able to help.

Re: Custom Signature for Dahua NVR

Hello Benjamin,

 

I have gathered some packets, but do not know what types of identifers I'm looking for to make up a signature.  Do you have any examples or could I PM you some of the capture?

 

Thank you!

Re: Custom Signature for Dahua NVR

Jon,

 

when you look at the captures in wireshark what do you see in the data portion of the packet? 

 

does every session start with a predictable string or sequence of bits/bytes? if so we can try to build a signature from that.

 

assuming that the capture doesn't contain any information that you would consider confidential (IP addresses, personally identifiable info, etc) you could share it here and then we can try to find a way to help you write a custom signature.

Re: Custom Signature for Dahua NVR

Here are a few lines from the capture with the source and destination IPs removed.  Is there enough info here or do you need more packet details.

Re: Custom Signature for Dahua NVR

We'd need to see what's in some of those packets to build a signature. the pattern matching engine works against the data portion of the packet if memory serves me.
