This week the SIP Network Operators Conference (SIPNOC) takes place in Herndon, Virginia, and the SIPNOC agenda turns out to have a great focus on security as it relates to VoIP and IP-based communications in general. The security-related sessions include:
- The Growth of Robocalling SPIT
- Communications Service Providers and Threat Intelligence Sharing
- Panel Discussion: Anatomy of a VoIP DMZ
- VoIP Theft: Werewolf or Hydra
- Who are You Really Calling? How DNSSEC Can Help
There will also be a “VoIP Security Birds-of-a-feather (BOF)” session tomorrow evening where we’ll be sharing information about VoIP security issues and learning from each other about what issues people are seeing.
Sponsored by the SIP Forum, SIPNOC is an educational event that brings together primarily technical and operations staff from a wide range of telecommunications and VoIP service providers. It is not a trade show, i.e. there is no exhibit hall. It is just focused on providing educational sessions and networking opportunities.
I’ll be there at SIPNOC speaking about DNSSEC, IPv6 and moderating the VoIP security BOF and the VoIP DMZ panel . I look forward to meeting up again with many of the folks who have attended SIPNOC in the past years. The event is not livestreamed, but if you are in the DC area and want to attend, registration is still open.
If you are there at SIPNOC 2013, please do say hello!
