Special Webinar Session
Friday, July 23, 11:30am-12:30pm EDT
Enterprise STIR/SHAKEN Identity Management Using Distributed Ledger Technology
Distributed Ledgers provide a decentralized immutable ledger and guarantee a single source of truth, allowing all stakeholders to validate enterprise identities to meet full attestation requirements and deliver verified calls.
During this joint session with ATIS and First Orion, we’ll explore the benefits of Distributed Ledger Technology including:
· Allowing for unique enterprise digital identities to be managed as a global network identity
· Implementing an enterprise identity with distributed ledger technology in the existing STIR/SHAKEN ecosystem enables SHAKEN to meet its full potential for multiple enterprise calling scenarios
· The telephone number used by the enterprise is recorded on the DLT network, ensuring all stakeholders instantly know who has the right to place a call using the telephone number and for what reason
· Enhancing caller information with “Branded Phone Calls” is crucial for enterprises looking beyond base STIR/SHAKEN authentication
· Fulfilling the requirements set forth by the regulatory bodies, distributed ledger technology ensures that the identity of every phone number can be authenticated, and all calls can be traced back to their point of origin
This webinar includes DLT API and call flow demonstrations.
