Welcome to the website for the book "Seven Deadliest Unified Communications Attacks" by Dan York published by Syngress (now a division of Elsevier) in April 2010.
It is 2015 and your communications system is no longer some box screwed onto plywood in some back room with a bunch of phones connected to it. Today your "Unified Communications" system is voice, video, instant messaging, presence, collaboration... and so much more... all running on commodity operating systems and running across your data network and even potentially the public Internet.
How do you secure a system like that?
This is the primary question addressed in the "Seven Deadliest Unified Communications Attacks". UC systems are comprised of so many components and have the potential to be globally distributed.
In such a system, what are the threats? And perhaps more importantly, what are the best strategies for protecting against those threats? And what does the future look like?
In the book you will learn all about topics such as:
- UC Ecosystem Attacks
- Insecure Endpoints
- Eavesdropping and Modification
- Control Channel Attacks: Fuzzing, DoS, SPIT and Toll Fraud
- SIP Trunking and PSTN Interconnection
- Identity, Spoofing and Vishing
- Attacks Against Distributed System
The book is also full of links to resources where you can learn more about Unified Communications and VoIP security. This companion web site also includes more resources, a blog with updates and a link over to the companion Facebook page.
