RE: VOIP as Gateway

Hi,

You are talking about 2 totally different things here.

If I am calling to someone (I am using the regular PSTN) and he is using
an IP phone it is seamless from your end. His PSTN-VoIP gateway will
convert the signaling and voice samples from the PSTN based protocols to
VoIP based protocols and vice versa.


VoIP Network -------|GW|------ PSTN 


The risk here is to abuse the gateway from the PSTN side (GW/IP PBX). If
you get yourself on the GW/IP PBX that’s it...

Subject: VOIP as Gateway



I have read the particulars to VOIP and securing 
VOIP as an application. However, has anyone 
performed any pen testing or research on using VOIP 
as a gateway? 

For example, someone from the outside (not part of 
the VOIP network) dialing from home (etc) to an 
organization's VOIP-enabled phone. Then, using the 
VOIP-enabled phone as a gateway to the rest of the 
IP network? 

TIA
