SHAKEN 101: Mitigating Illegal Robocalling and Caller ID Scams — an ATIS Webinar

SHAKEN 101: Mitigating Illegal Robocalling and Caller ID Scams — an ATIS Webinar

WHAT: ATIS plays a key role in the coordinated industry-driven work to prevent unwanted robocalls, a top customer complaint received by both Federal and state regulators. This webinar provides updates on advances being made to set key robocalling mitigation protocols into action in the network. It explains how illegal robocalls and Caller ID spoofing work and how key capabilities of the STIR/SHAKEN protocols will work to combat this fraud. This webinar will also illustrate how SHAKEN allows service providers to verify the accuracy of the caller ID information displayed to the end user. And, finally, it will show how SHAKEN provides a valuable tool supporting “traceback” to help the authorities quickly identify the source of fraudulent calls.

WHEN: January 30, 2:00 p.m. ET.

SPEAKERS: Jim McEachern, ATIS Principal Technologist, with Moderator Brent Struthers, Director of the Secure Telephone Identity Governance Authority (STI-GA).

BACKGROUND: Working with the IETF’s STIR (Secure Telephone Identity Revisited) protocol, the ATIS-SIP Forum Signature-based Handling of Asserted information using toKENs (SHAKEN) specification specifies a practical mechanism for authenticating calls. Attaching a “digital signature” will help consumers to once again trust their caller ID.
