Speaking at SIPNOC on SIP Security – What Would You Like Me to Say To Service Providers?

Sipnoc2011 1Tomorrow I will be in Herndon, Virginia, outside of Washington, DC, at “SIPNOC: The SIP Network Operators Conference“. I will be speaking in two sessions (details here), one of which is a panel about “SIP Adoption and Network Security” and will include two other panelists from Acme Packet and Sipera Systems.

The panel discussion is planned to be about what are the primary security issues related to wider deployment of SIP at the network operator / service provider level, and what can we do about them. The discussion will be in a room full of people from various large operators / service providers.

I have my list of topics I intend to raise, but I’m curious about what you all might say… if you were to stand up in front of a room of network operators to talk about how they could improve the security of their SIP networks… or what the major issues are that you see… what would you say?

If you have thoughts, please do leave them as comments here. As I am on the panel representing VOIPSA, I’m certainly glad to incorporate comments from the wider community.

P.S. If you are at SIPNOC this week, please do say hello!
