Focus on the STIR/SHAKEN Framework

The focus of STIR/SHAKEN VIRTUAL SUMMIT is on the deployment of the STIR/SHAKEN Framework and it’s role in the mitigation of Robocalls and Caller ID Spoofing, as well as other related regulatory and enforcement topics.

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 TRACED Act, signed into law on December 30, 2019, authorized the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to issue additional civil penalties on individuals who intentionally violate restrictions on the use of automated telephone equipment (i.e., illegal robocalls and spoofing); and directed the FCC to require voice service providers to offer call authentication technologies (i.e., STIR/SHAKEN) to consumers.

With the STIR/SHAKEN service provider certification deadline of June 30 established by the FCC fast approaching, and the deadline for call blocking to commence 90 days following that (September 30, 2021), the race is on for a large percentage of service providers to deploy STIR/SHAKEN in time. The 2021 STIR/SHAKEN VIRTUAL SUMMIT will offer the most timely and essential information these providers need to tackle the technological, logistical and business challenges involved in that endeavor.
