New “terms” in the telephony business

by tgposzadmin on May 29th, 2007

I can’t remember where I read this, but now that VoIP is a pretty common technology offering and that more and more of the common man is aware of what it is and what it does, it’s fair that new terms are coming to the forefront…

  • “Fuzzing” is essentially a denial-of-service attack against a VoIP system.
  • “Footprinting” is using a search engine to find things like extension listings on the open Internet.
  • “SIP Enumeration” means probing ports on a network to find one that isn’t tightly locked down.

Nothing really new here as far as content, these security issues have been discussed before, what’s new is the “catchy” terms themselves.
