Excellent VoIP Security Article

Speaking of Ottawa…
 
Bogdan Materna of VoIPShield Systems has a wonderful article up on our site today on the subject of spam over Internet telephony, or SPIT. Hate the acronym. LOVE the article.
 
As Materna points out, the threat of SPIT is real:
 
Spam over Internet Telephony (SPIT) incidents are already being reported in Japan, where the VoIP market is more mature than North America. A major VoIP provider, SoftbankBB, found three incidents of SPIT within its network, which included unsolicited commercial messages for an adult Web site and illegitimate requests for personal information.
 
As VoIP adoption continues to accelerate and technology is now available to block unwanted e-mails, it is reasonable to expect that SPIT attacks will quickly follow.
 
Check out the article, and let me know what you think about this issue. Is it real? Is it hype? I’m curious to hear what the marketplace has to say. And when we’re done with SPIT we can move on to other big VoIP security issues like VOMIT.
