Spring into 202ONE: Network-Based Blocking for Calls not yet Secured by STIR/SHAKEN and Implications of the Latest FCC Ruling
23 Mar 2021
Facilitator: Ewout Pronk, NetNumber
In December 2020, the FCC released its latest order of the Telephone Robocall Abuse Criminal Enforcement and Deterrence (TRACED) act. This new order mandates Communication Service Providers (CSP) in the US to block unwanted voice calls by extending the methods used in network-blocking these illegal calls and to make it easier to identify and fix erroneous blocked calls. This new mandate refers to the typical situations where either the initiator of a call cannot be trusted or when calls are received from other networks without being secured by STIR/SHAKEN caller ID authentication information. While the US nationwide rollout of STIR/SHAKEN is underway, a majority of voice calls between CSP networks and on routes with foreign networks, will not have STIR/SHAKEN authentication information. In this presentation we outline the most notable implications of the ruling and suggest possible directions to comply to this new FCC TRACED act order.
