« Blue Box #42: The Rant edition - the ticking time bomb of VoIP service provider insecurity, Skype security, Swiss government and spyware, listener comments and more | Main | Blue Box SE #13: "VoIP Security Best Practices" panel at Internet Telephony Fall 2006 »

October 24, 2006


Hello Dan and Jonathan,

Congrats on completing a very productive first year. Thanks to your efforts, we as a community, and I personally, have learnt a lot on the VOIP Security and you kept us up-to-date on the latest happenings.

The recent special editions have great content and discussion, especially, Blue Box SE #10: Interview with Gary Miliefsky of Netclarity and Blue Box SE #12: "Intro to VoIP Security" panel at Internet Telephony Fall 2006. Thanks for providing us "free tickets" to parts of that conference and making us "virtual" audience to that panel discussion (on VOIP security by Ken Camp et al). A big "Thank you" to Rich Tehrani as well. We would love more such special editions (panel discussions and perspectives from industry leaders).

The format of presenting standalone special editions is better than sandwiching an interview or topic in a regular episode. It keeps the focus on the specific topic being discussed.

Appreciate all the time and effort you put in.

Full Disclosure

  • Dan York, CISSP, is the Chair of the VOIP Security Alliance (VOIPSA) and Senior Content Strategist for the Internet Society.

    Jonathan Zar is affiliated with Pingalo and is the Secretary of VOIPSA and member of the Board of Directors.

    This is a personal project and neither the Internet Society, Pingalo nor VOIPSA have any formal connection to this podcast. In the interest of transparency we just thought you should know our affiliations.

Why "Blue Box"?

  • We chose the name "Blue Box" primarily as a nod to the era of phone phreaking in part to illustrate that threats to telephony are not new - they just continue to change and evolve. That and admittedly the name just sounded cool.
