Telecom Signaling Featured Resources
Today's telecommunications landscape is changing rapidly, and the "institution" of trust between networks that has been assumed over the decades is no longer relevant. We are now hearing of vulnerabilities in CSP interconnection points that have been known for a long time, but have become much more worrisome not because they exist, but because the hacker community is actively promoting this research, selling toolkits for other hackers and even providing training. The obstacle for hackers has always been getting a network connection at the control plane ...
With all of the discussion about faster data access and richer content, it could be assumed that voice services no longer play an important role in the business model of the communications service provider. Join ReThink Technologies Research and Oracle Communications as we explore ...
Service providers have long relied on a concept of "trusted networks" when interconnecting with their partners. The entire Signaling System #7 (SS7) interconnection business is based on this concept. However, we live in a new world, and we can no longer assume that all partners are trustworthy. In fact, evidence shows that network partners are exploiting interconnects for other revenue opportunities.
This webinar will look at a different approach to securing the edge of the SS7 network using an SS7 firewall function, including:
• What service providers should be looking for
• How they can mitigate interconnect exploits
• What are other service providers doing to protect themselves?
Listen now to learn the key considerations for securing network interconnects.
