4. SIP Network Cyber Attacks Update

Presented by Amitava Mukherjee, CEO, RedShift Networks.

During 2016, RedShift Networks saw more than 14M attacks from SIP Global Botnets from around the world targeting global carriers. Carriers are continuing to migrate Fixed Line, Mobile, Cable and Peering networks to VoIP using the SIP protocol. This has exposed their network to new threats and attacks from hackers, perpetrators and SIP Botnets that are constantly looking for new attack surfaces to carry out security attacks, DoS/DDoS SPIT, Identity spoofing, RoboCalls/TDoS attacks, and fraud.

SIP is now the most active vector of Cyber Attacks in Carrier networks, outpacing other common protocols like HTTP, SMPT and others protocols. Carrier’s need to become more aware of these emerging threats, the impact they may have on their business and implement stronger voice cyber security measures imposing multi-layer network defenses like that of network security postures for Data Networks.

In this talk, Amitava will speak about the increase of cyber security activity in the VoIP/SIP realm in the last year and at a technical level, highlighting specific use case examples of breaches that have been identified at different carriers around the world using a cloud analytics system with global sensors.
