Today, our client, SecureLogix Corporation, announced that its Chief Technology Officer, Mark Collier, will lead a presentation entitled “Cutting-Edge Issues in VoIP Security” during the VoiceCon Fall 2005 conference and exhibition which runs from August 29 to September 1 at the Manchester Grand Hyatt in San Diego, California.
Although there is an increasing awareness that the general, underlying vulnerabilities of data networks are an equally serious concern for converged voice/data networks, less is understood about VoIP application-specific threats such as Denial-of-Service floods, malformed packets, registration hijacking, SIP proxy impersonation, message tampering, session tear downs, voice mail bombs, and VoIP spam (also call “SPIT”). This presentation will examine newly-emerging security threats to VoIP services, as well as threats unique to IP-telephony applications and IP-PBX systems.
The presentation will seek to answer several key questions including:
· What are the greatest areas of security vulnerability for voice services running on data networks, and have these threats changed since VoIP technologies were introduced a few years ago?
· Now that VoIP technologies are beginning to be deployed, are VoIP threats evolving and becoming more sophisticated?
· What new types of threats have emerged within the past 12 months, and how should corporations deal with them?
· How secure are today’s crop of VoIP switches and phones?
· How should corporations secure their IP-telephony implementations, and how much cost and effort will it involve?
