Special Free-to-Attend Webinar Series takes place July 19-23, 2021; Expands International focus on issues vital to the deployment and operation of the STIR/SHAKEN Call Authentication Framework and the ongoing efforts to combat illegal Robocalls and Caller ID Spoofing
The SIP Forum is proud to announce that the official agenda and webinar registrations are now live for 2021 STIR/SHAKEN VIRTUAL SUMMIT, a special webinar series focusing on the challenges and opportunities related to the deployment and operations of the STIR/SHAKEN Call Authentication Framework.
The SIP Forum is also very proud to report that due to overwhelming sponsor support, the 2021 STIR/SHAKEN VIRTUAL SUMMIT will be free to attend! Current event sponsors include Diamond Sponsors First Orion, iconectiv, and Neustar; Platinum Sponsors Ribbon Communications; Gold Sponsors AT&T, Hiya, Metaswitch, Numeracle, Somos, and TransNexus, Silver Sponsors REDCOM and Telnyx; and Association Sponsors Cloud Communications Alliance (CCA), Comms Council UK, CTIA, NTCA – The Rural Broadband Association, and USTelecom.
Like the SIP Forum’s December SIPNOC 2020 – the 2021 STIR/SHAKEN VIRTUAL SUMMIT will be a virtual event consisting of a special series of webinars presented by the experts leading the development of the STIR/SHAKEN Call Authentication Framework, as well as leading companies providing STIR/SHAKEN solutions and deployment expertise.
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 2021 STIR/SHAKEN VIRTUAL SUMMIT will feature a series of webinars that focus on issues critical to the reliable and successful International 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.
