Organizations handling confidential information must ensure it gets held and transmitted securely and appropriately. A number of laws, principles and obligations govern how organizations should handle this requirement. These laws have grown increasingly complex, and the security demands of IP telephony more urgent.
Eavesdropping is one of the most common threats in a VoIP environment. If the VoIP traffic over the internet is unencrypted, anyone with network access can listen in on conversations. Equally or more dangerous than the hacking of phone calls themselves is that the phone system may allow access into company networks. The phone connection is a portal to all data within the company, and must be treated as such.
Concern about the massive growth of telephone tapping incidents has led to a larger demand for secure telephone handsets. The practical availability of secure telephones is restricted by factors such as politics, export issues, incompatibility between different products and high (though recently decreasing) prices. Snom, in partnership with GSMK CryptoPhone, has an ongoing development project to produce highly secure encrypted telephones suitable for use with confidential services including government and military applications.
