STIR (Secure Telephone Identity Revisited) / SHAKEN (Signature-based Handling of Asserted information using toKENs) is a framework designed to assign a certificate of authenticity to each phone call for use across the telecom network. These certificates will act as a digital signature of trust passed from carrier to carrier to improve traceable call delivery.
The FCC is leading the push for industry adoption of these standards to improve the ability to trace back to illegal call origination across all carriers. As of March 31, 2020, the FCC has mandated that both originating and terminating voice service providers implement the STIR/SHAKEN caller ID authentication framework in the IP portions of their networks by June 30, 2021. STIR/SHAKEN is also mandated by the TRACED Act.
Once implemented, STIR/SHAKEN should provide the identity of origination of calls into the network, operationally across all carriers. Secondary benefits could include the identification of verified calling identities through what is known as attestation.
