All VOIPSA projects are open and collaborative.

 
Privacy Commerce Project
===================
The purpose of this project is to improve the public trust in using IMS
services for lawful communication.  These services include current and next
generation web services that converge: voice, video, chat, social
networking, and other applications.  The public consistently polls in favor
of privacy interests and is willing to pay for some measure of privacy
either in fees or benefits.  Industry sector regulation of privacy and data
security increase year-by-year.  Missing are the market enablers for a
commercial market in IMS based privacy solutions.

Goals
====
1.  Explicate the technical requirements for general privacy solutions for
lawful communications.
2.  Enable the technical infrastructure.
 
Benefits
======
1.  The public gains confidence in social networking and new services on
IMS.
2.  National and local governments gain improvements in domestic and
cross-border security.
3.  Industry and carriers benefit profitably in satisfying business and
consumer needs for privacy.
