[VOIPSEC] Anyone know of a hosted service for scanning security of SIP services?

Some SIP providers lock down the SIP IP PBX to a certain IP address.
 Especially, it seems, providers that originated in the TDM world and seem
to be stuck in the TDM mindset.  I could imagine a wily hacker could spoof
the address if he hacked into a carrier's router, although I haven't heard
of actual cases where this has happened.
