Secure Communication and VoIP Threats in Next Generation Networks

M. Hossein Ahmadzadegan, M. Elmusrati, and H. Mohammadi
Abstract—VoIP services are among key issues in the Next Generation Network (NGN) for the telecommunication domain. This technology is comprised of positive and negative aspects like similar emerging technologies. Nowadays, telecom operators provide call waiting, conference calling, call transfer, caller ID and other VoIP services based on NGN and all IP solution. Thus, VoIP security is now one of the issues over which many debates take place. In this paper we have decided to concentrate on vulnerability categories for VoIP services in NGN. We try to present the common security threats and vulnerabilities of VoIP services. Determining the vulnerabilities and their classification, together with the risks that this system is threatened by clarifies the ways to penetrate this system and enables administrators to solve the problems. The debate on this matter would be misleading without having full recognition of various specifications. In addition, to make the importance of identifying these types of vulnerabilities clear, we will classify the probability threats for VoIP.
