Authenticate Caller ID with Digital Certificates
If you want to implement STIR/SHAKEN you will need a nationally, approved Certification Authority (STI-CA)
Illegal robocalls and fraudsters who spoof (change the caller ID) to look like a neighbor, local business, trusted brand, or even a government entity are responsible for an estimated $10 billion per year in losses. Subscribers have lost trust in the phone as a key communication channel and 76% don’t answer a call if they’re not certain who’s on the other end of the line.
To put a stop to robocalls, Congress stepped in and passed the TRACED ACT which mandates voice service providers implement a caller ID authentication technology called STIR/SHAKEN by June 30, 2021.
STIR/SHAKEN is a set of industry-developed protocols that address illegal caller ID spoofing (using digital certificates) and help restore trust in phone calls. A key security component of the SHAKEN framework is a Certification Authority (STI-CA).
