Security Threats to VoIP Outlined at VoiceCon 2005 by SecureLogix

SecureLogix Corporation announced today that its Chief Technology Officer, Mark Collier, will lead a presentation entitled "Cutting-Edge Issues in VoIP Security" during the VoiceCon Fall 2005 conference and exhibition. The presentation is scheduled for Wednesday, August 31, from 3:00 p.m. to 4:15 p.m. The conference will run from August 29 to September 1 at the Manchester Grand Hyatt in San Diego, California.

Although there is an increasing awareness that the general, underlying vulnerabilities of data networks are an equally serious concern for converged voice/data networks, less is understood about VoIP application-specific threats such as Denial-of-Service floods, malformed packets, registration hijacking, SIP proxy impersonation, message tampering, session tear downs, voice mail bombs, and VoIP spam (also call "SPIT"). This presentation will examine newly-emerging security threats to VoIP services, as well as threats unique to IP-telephony applications and IP-PBX systems.

The presentation will seek to answer several key questions including:

* What are the greatest areas of security vulnerability for voice services running on data networks, and have these threats changed since VoIP technologies were introduced a few years ago?

* Now that VoIP technologies are beginning to be deployed, are VoIP threats evolving and becoming more sophisticated?

* What new types of threats have emerged within the past 12 months, and how should corporations deal with them?

* How secure are today's crop of VoIP switches and phones?

* How should corporations secure their IP-telephony implementations, and how much cost and effort will it involve?

In addition to Collier's presentation, SecureLogix will exhibit the voice/VoIP firewall and intrusion prevention capabilities of the company's ETM® (Enterprise Telephony Management) System at booth #708 during the conference exhibition.
