Highly successful Webinar Series took place June 22-26, 2020; focused on issues vital to the deployment of the STIR/SHAKEN Call Authentication Framework and ongoing efforts to combat illegal Robocalls and Caller ID Spoofing
NORTH ANDOVER, MA (July 30, 2020) – The SIP Forum has announced that the recordings of the sessions from the STIR/SHAKEN VIRTUAL SUMMIT – a special webinar series focused on the challenges and opportunities related to the deployment of the STIR/SHAKEN Call Authentication Framework – are now available for on-demand viewing at no charge.
Those who missed the live, virtual event can now visit the STIR/SHAKEN VIRTUAL SUMMIT agenda webpage to register for and immediately view recordings of the webinar series.
The STIR/SHAKEN VIRTUAL SUMMIT featured a series of webinars that focus on issues critical to the reliable and successful deployment and operation of STIR/SHAKEN in today’s IP-based network environments, as well as associated topics including discussion of the ramifications of governmental regulatory, legislative and enforcement actions and critical security issues.
Developed jointly by the SIP Forum and ATIS (the Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions) to efficiently implement the Internet Engineering Task Force’s (IETF) STIR (for Secure Telephony Identity Revisited) standard, SHAKEN (for Signature-based Handling of Asserted information using toKENs) defines a mechanism to verify the calling number and specifies how it will be transported across communications networks.
Together, STIR/SHAKEN offers a practical mechanism to provide verified information about the calling party as well as the origin of the call — what is known as “attestation” — for the first time in the network. Giving service providers the tools needed to sign and verify calling numbers makes it possible for businesses and consumers to know, before answering, that the calls they receive are from legitimate parties.
The STIR/SHAKEN VIRTUAL SUMMIT webinars provide actionable information for all industry stakeholders in the Robocall and Caller ID Spoofing elimination/mitigation ecosystem, including telecommunications providers, major backbone operators, interconnect and wholesale solution providers, ISPs, cable operators, and wireless network operators, as well as governmental regulators and agencies, regulatory attorneys with state and federal jurisdictions, equipment manufacturers and mobile product developers, device integration specialists, large enterprise service assurance operations and IT/communications staff, government agencies, customer care/contact centers, and application providers and data analytics firms.
A number of leading companies supported the STIR/SHAKEN VIRTUAL SUMMIT through their generous support as webinar sponsors, including Metaswitch, NetNumber, Neustar, Ribbon Communications, SecureLogix, and TransNexus.
