ISF warns of VOIP security

A new report from the Information Security Forum (ISF) warns that along with existing security problems associated with IP networks, VoIP will present new and more sophisticated threats - such as caller ID spoofing, voice modifiers, SPIT (voicemail SPAM), packet injections , virus infections and denial of service (DoS) attacks.

With VoIP now poised to hit the business market in a big way, the ISF believes that failure to address these serious risks may bring voice communications to a grinding halt and result in identify theft and loss of sensitive information.

The problems of poor quality transmission and loss of service are gradually being overcome, which is expected to lead to more widespread adoption and reliance on VoIP in the future. This trend is also being driven by cost savings, improved functionality, ease of access and low cost of entry.
