Recent STIR/SHAKEN statistics

We’ve looked at call statistics from our ClearIP customers for the last 45 days to see whether they’re getting many calls that were signed using STIR/SHAKEN. Here’s what we found.

Verification statuses

What proportion of terminated calls were signed? Of the signed calls, were there any verification errors?

Verification statusProportion of all calls received by ClearIP customers
No PASSporT97.149131%
Successful2.829892%
Certificate chain error0.013079%
Calling number mismatch0.003335%

Certificate repository error0.000280%
Invalid iat in PASSporT0.000052%
Invalid orig in PASSporT0.000033%
100.000000%

Of the calls received by ClearIP customers, fewer than 3% had a PASSporT.

Most of the PASSporTs with a verification status of Certificate chain error were signed with a self-signed certificate.

Most of the PASSporTs with a verification status of Calling number mismatch had a valid number in the orig claim of the PASSporT but had anonymous in the From and/or P-Asserted-Identity header.

Most of the PASSporTs with a verification status of Invalid info parameter in Identity header had an info paramater that contained an HTTP URL instead of an HTTPS URL.

Note that the above data reflect both call volume and SHAKEN activity. The data show the proportion of successfully verified calls received by ClearIP customers for each originating service provider as a percentage of all successfully verified calls. If a small number of calls were received from an originating service provider, then percentage of successfully verified calls received by ClearIP customers would be low, even if the originating service provider signed a high percentage of their outbound calls.

The above data include only originating service providers that had at least one successfuly verified call received by a ClearIP customer.

Retrieving a certificate from a certificate repository takes time, or latency, which increases Post-Dial Delay (PDD). If a certificate is cached by the STI-VS, then it does not need to be retrieved.

A certificate repository can be configured to provide a Cache-Control HTTP header, which tells the STI-VS how long to cache the certificate after retrieving it. If a certificate repository does not provide the Cache-Control header, the STI-VS does not cache the certificate or caches the certificate for only a short time.

Note that the ClearIP STI-VS caches certificates for 60 seconds if the Cache-Control header is not set by the certificate repository or if the Cache-Control header contains a value of less than 60 seconds.

Summary

  • Fewer than 3% of calls were signed.
  • Fewer than 0.75% of signed calls had verification errors.
  • More than 98% of successfully verified calls had an attestation level of A.
  • Successfully verified calls were received from 26 originating service providers.
  • 60% of certificate repositories did not include the Cache-Control header.
