Introduction to STIR/SHAKEN
STIR/SHAKEN is a groundbreaking framework designed to authenticate and verify phone calls made over Internet Protocol (IP) networks.It helps combat the increasing prevalence of robocalls and caller ID spoofing by enabling service providers to confirm the legitimacy of calls, protecting customers from malicious actors.
How STIR/SHAKEN works
The STIR/SHAKEN framework consists of two main components: STIR (SecureTelephony Identity Revisited) and SHAKEN (Signature-based Handling of Asserted information using toKENs). Together, they create a robust system for call authentication and verification.
STIR focuses on defining a standard for creating and validating cryptographic signatures for calls. It uses digital certificates, which are issued by a trusted authority, to establish a chain of trust between the calling party and the called party.
SHAKEN, on the other hand, outlines the procedures for service providers to implement STIR. It specifies how the digital signatures should be transmitted and verified during the call setup process. By adhering to the SHAKEN guidelines, service providers can authenticate calls, ensuring a secure calling experience for their customers.
Attestation and Its Impact on Caller ID
Attestation plays a crucial role in the STIR/SHAKEN framework, as it is the process by which service providers vouch for the legitimacy of a call. There are three levels of attestation, each reflecting the degree of trust that a service provider has in the call's origin:
- Full Attestation (A-Level): The service provider has confirmed the caller's identity, relationship, and authorization to use the calling number.
- Partial Attestation (B-Level): The service provider has a relationship with the caller but cannot fully verify that the caller is authorized to use the calling number.
- Gateway Attestation (C-Level): The service provider can only verify that the call originated from their network, with no information about the caller's identity or authorization.
Attestation levels have a direct impact on how calls are treated by receiving service providers and caninfluence whether a call is labeled as spam or not.
