Quintum Publishes Security Guide

Tim Gray, TMCnet Web Editor

Voice over IP innovator Quintum (News - Alert) Technologies has published a brief security guide on the security measures that Tenors have built-in to their software, in an effort to assure greater VoIP security when deploying Tenor VoIP MultiPath switches and gateways in telephony and IP telephony networks.

The New Jersey-based company says it developed the guides to address recent VoIP security concerns after several high profile security breaches with VoIP gateways.

"With all the recent concerns regarding security breaches through VoIP gateways, Quintum wanted to provide a simple, easy-to-read guide on how to address the security of your VoIP network when using Tenor VoIP Gateways and Switches," said Chuck Rutledge (News - Alert), vice president of Marketing for Quintum.

Rutledge says the company also developed the guide to address these concerns, as well as to show how easily users are able to secure their Tenors in both H.323 or SIP environments.

Security measures that Tenors have built in to their software code include authorization and authentication, According to Rutledge.

”There are also up to 5 layers within Tenor's configuration phases where passwords are employed,” he said.

And, when SIP is in use Tenors require that the SIP Registrar and SIP Proxy be configured with an IP address to make outbound calls. Incoming calls can also be "screened" by the SIP server to accept only those calls that are routed through the configured proxy.

For networks using H.323, Tenors have an Endpoint Address Directory to configure specific IP addresses, which will either allow or bar calls.

Quintum also recommends using unique, creative and strong passwords at every level. Several websites are offered to assist users in the creation of such passwords.
