Verizon STIR/SHAKEN testing

Verizon announced recently that they have completed calls using STIR/SHAKEN technology within their network. The company issued a statement that this exchange of STIR/SHAKEN-enabled calls is a critical step in restoring trust in caller ID.

Verizon also advised that, in the coming months, they will begin to deploy STIR/SHAKEN on their interconnections with all major carriers.

STIR/SHAKEN and secure caller ID

STIR/SHAKEN provides a way for initiating service providers to put a token with call information into the call. The information includes an attestation indicator to provide information about the veracity of the caller ID, along with an originating ID for traceback purposes. The token is signed using Public Key Infrastructure so it can be checked for tampering by the terminating service provider.

This combination of capabilities will help people begin to trust caller ID again and avoid unwanted robocalls, which often use spoofed caller IDs.
