Using Asterisk to Increase Security and Reduce Emergency Response Times (A Success Story with the Mexican Government)
Juan Carlos Fernandez Busto Co-Founder -Telecomunicaciones Abiertas de Mexico SA de CV
Due to the increasing insecurity faced by journalists and human rights workers in Mexico, the Mexican Government passed a law in 2012 calling for the rapid implementation of measures to help protect them. In response, Telecomunicaciones Abiertas de Mexico provided an innovative, practical, reliable, and costeffective solution using an Asteriskbased system in conjunction with other technologies. The system was in place and operational by the end of 2012 and has been used successfully to defuse dangerous situations to its users.The system allows the journalists to send alarms of distress from their mobile phones in case of emergency by simply dialing a preprogrammed speeddial number. The alarm activation automatically triggers a series of events and has the capability of notifying family members, colleagues, government officials, and security forces within a matter of seconds. Depending on the device used to send the distress call, the system is capable of distributing the audio of the subscriber or the GPS location of the phone from which the call was made, the latter being extremely useful when dangerous circumstances prevent the subscriber from being able to communicate verbally.This multitechnology system can be applied not only for journalists but also in many types of security or emergency situations. It is only one of the many examples in which Asterisk, when used creatively and in conjunction with other technologies, can provide an endless possibility of stateoftheart applications in response to reallife problems.

Security Issues in SIP Based VoIP Server
Yeasir Arafat Mr. -Dhakacom Limited
Session Initiation Protocol is a core protocol for real time communication networks, including VoIP. In this paper, the authors ensured security for asterisk based SIP server using linux kernel packet filtering firewall tools know as iptables using port number by allowing and disallowing particular IP address or IP addresses with subnet. To protect the SIP server from external attack rules applied at linux iptables for the useful protocol and with their port number such as SSH port22, SIP port5060, HTTPS port443, TCP, UDP, RTP, ICMP etc. A popular simulation software or network protocol analyzer known as Wireshark is used to describe how the iptables rules worked that applied for above protocols and shows the changes before and after applying rules. This paper also shows the asterisk server monitoring using the Linux kernel log files and asterisk command line interface CLI that shows the successful and unsuccessful SSH login sessions and web based login HTTPS with IP addresses list, SIP register request to the SIP server with user agent IP address and other updates that takes by the Linux kernel.
