The SIP Forum Presents:
A Special Webinar Series Focused on STIR/SHAKEN Deployment and Enforcement
Monday, June 22 – Friday, June 26, 2020
Presented by the SIP Forum, the STIR/SHAKEN VIRTUAL SUMMIT was built on the success of the SIP Forum’s last SIPNOC 2019 conference. SIP Forum earned high praise from attendees for its educational, non-commercial and technical content that focused on the real-world challenges service providers face when deploying STIR/SHAKEN.
This virtual event consisted of a special series of free-to-attend webinars presented by the experts leading the development of the STIR/SHAKEN Call Authentication Framework, as well as leading companies providing solutions and deployment expertise.

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.
With the recent signing into law of the “Pallone-Thune Telephone Robocall Abuse Criminal Enforcement and Deterrence Act”, or the “TRACED Act” (S.151), by President Trump on December 30, 2019, there is new urgency surrounding the deployment of STIR/SHAKEN within the telecommunications industry.
The TRACED Act authorizes 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 directs the FCC to require voice service providers to offer call authentication technologies (i.e., STIR/SHAKEN) to consumers.
With a primary focus on the deployment and implementation of STIR/SHAKEN and the Robocall Mitigation industry eco-system, STIR/SHAKEN VIRTUAL SUMMIT is a must-attend event for operational personnel and engineers from service providers of all stripes, and for individuals who are part of the Robocall and Call ID Spoofing solutions ecosystem, including:
