STI-GA director Struthers comments on the STI-PA timeline
ATIS conducted a webinar on Wednesday, January 30, 2019, “SHAKEN 101: Mitigating Illegal Robocalling and Caller ID Scams.” In this webinar, STI-GA director Brent Struthers shared his expectations for when the STI Policy Administrator (STI-PA) might be in place.
The ATIS SHAKEN webinar was presented by:
Brent Struthers, Director, STI-GA
Eric Burger, Chief Technology Officer, FCC
Jim McEachern, Principal Technologist, ATIS
Policy Administrator selection process timeline
- November 15, 2018. The STI Governance Authority (STI-GA) issued an RFP for organizations to issue their proposals to become the Policy Administrator role.
- February 4, 2019. RFP responses are due.
In yesterday’s webinar, Brent Struthers said he hopes to have the STI-PA in place by July 2019.
Jim McEachern said that some service providers have already implemented STIR/SHAKEN, and others are expected to follow soon. He said they will benefit by gaining operational experience in authenticating calls using self-signed certificates and verifying signed calls.
