VOIP Security Risks

The Voice Over IP Security Alliance (VOIPSA) has published a VOIP Security and Privacy Threat Paper which provides a good overview of the various types of security threats facing VOIP communications. According to the VOIPSA, this VoIP Security Threat Taxonomy is meant to define the many potential security threats to VoIP deployments, services, and end users. Part of the challenge of devising effective VoIP security protections requires identifying these threats in the first place. The overall goal of this project is to help ground VoIP security awareness in the industry, press, and general public.
