tackling illegal robocalls and caller ID spoofing

Your telephone is constantly by your side. It is an extension of your identity and life. Despite the constant accessibility and desire to access and exchange information simply, seamlessly and securely, confidence in the authenticity of callers continues to wane due to technology shifts and the scale at which bad actors misuse and abuse communication networks. As a result, lawmakers, regulators, businesses and service providers are restoring trust in calls while maintaining a balance between convenience, availability and privacy.

leading the way to restore trust

Illegal robocallers and caller ID spoofing has eroded trust to such a degree that many people have simply stopped answering the phone. Working with stakeholders across the U.S. communications, industry iconectiv is helping in the fight to ensure people can trust their telephone and caller ID once again.

The Secure Telephone Identity Governance Authority (STI-GA), which was created to manage the rollout of the STIR (Secure Telephone Identity Revisited) protocol and SHAKEN (Signature-based Handling of Asserted information using toKENs) framework —selected iconectiv as the U.S. STI Policy Administrator (STI-PA). In this role, iconectiv applies and enforces the rules as defined by the STI-GA to operationalize the SHAKEN framework. This is a critical move to combat illegal robocallers and help restore consumer trust in caller ID.
