FCC to Host “SHAKEN/STIR” Robocall Summit

Ajit Pai, Chairman of the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will convene a summit this summer to discuss industry efforts to combat the rise in robocalls and caller ID spoofing.

Scheduled for July 11th at the FCC’s headquarters in Washington, the summit will focus on the telecommunication industry’s efforts to implement the FCC’s caller ID authentication framework, known as SHAKEN/STIR, an acronym for Signature-based Handling of Asserted information using toKENS (SHAKEN) and the Secure Telephone Identity Revisited (STIR). The SHAKEN/STIR framework was the product of joint effort between the Commission and industry and has been proposed for adoption by the North American Numbering Council (NANC).

The summit, which will be open to the public and also streamed live on the FCC’s website (www.fcc.gov/live), will include industry participants and other interested stakeholders, and will focus on sharing experiences to date in the deployment of call authentication technology and on technical barriers to further action regarding the implementation of the SHAKEN/STIR framework.
