Are you trying to understand STIR/SHAKEN and what it means for phone calls? You’ve likely heard the term thrown around, but do you know how this regulation can specifically benefit your home phone service experiences? As of June 30th, 2022 all VSPs must comply with STIR/SHAKEN regulations in order to securely sign on-network calls. Here at Voiply we want to ensure that our customers are educated not only about their own services but also the global advancements impacting them. We want our customers to know what STIR/SHAKEN is and why its important. So let us go through some background knowledge on STIR/SHAKEN so that our customers can properly understand how this technology ensures safer, more secure communications for their households.
What is STIR/SHAKEN and why is it needed
STIR/SHAKEN is a protocol developed by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to ensure that telephone calls between VSPs are verified and trusted. It does this by attaching digital certificates to calls, which can then be compared with details about the identity of the caller. These certificates allow for better monitoring and verification of phone numbers, allowing users to trust that calls from authorized and legitimate providers are verified by a third-party source. With this new technology, the FCC is hoping to reduce telephone call fraud and protect consumers from scams, leading to a more secure calling environment for all users.
How does STIR/SHAKEN work
STIR/SHAKEN is an important call authentication framework that allows phone carriers to verify phone numbers and battle the issue of robocalling. The system works by having the originating (calling) carrier sign each telephone number using digital certificates. This information is then transmitted to the terminating (called) carrier, which verifies it. If the signature matches, it confirms that the caller is legitimate and not spoofed or malicious. With its intent to provide industry-wide security against spoofing, STIR/SHAKEN will enable providers to report calls they believe are fraudulent or untrustworthy and ensure that users have greater control over who is calling them and why. By June 30th, 2022 all VSPs must comply with STIR/SHAKEN regulations in order to remain compliant.
