One of the conferences I've found most interesting each year is the SIP Network Operators Conference (SIPNOC) produced by the SIP Forum, a nonprofit industry association. Part of my interest is that it is only an educational conference, i.e. there's no massive exhibit floor or anything... it's all about education. It also brings together pretty much all the major players in the "IP communications" space - certainly within North America but also from around the world.
I'll be there this week in Herndon, Virginia, talking about how VoIP can work over IPv6 and how DNSSEC can make VoIP more secure. The sessions I am directly involved with include:
- Panel Discussion: Anatomy of a VoIP DMZ
- VoIP Security BOF
- Panel Discussion: IPv6 and SIP - Myth or Reality?
- Who Are You Really Calling? How DNSSEC Can Help
It should be quite a good show and I'm very much looking forward to it. I'm particularly looking forward to my "DNSSEC and VoIP" talk on Thursday as that is a topic I've not presented on before... but I think there is some quite valuable potential about using DNSSEC with VoIP.
If you are there at SIPNOC this week, please do say hello!
