  • 8. 8 What is a Session Border Controller?  Session = real-time, interactive communications – Voice, video & multimedia – SIP or H.323  Border = IP-IP network borders – SIP trunks to service providers – Remote worker access – Intra- & extra-enterprise  Control – Security & SLA assurance – Revenue & cost optimization – Regulatory compliance Redundant data centers Contact center, audio/video conferencing, emergency services, etc. To PSTN SIP Tele- worker Nomadic/ mobile user SIP Remote site 1.

All rights re
  • 9. 9 Why use an SBC?  Real-time IP communications is different than TDM and other IP flows – Sessions initiated from inside or outside of firewall – Continuous stream vs. traffic bursts, 2-way flows – Interoperability problems between multivendor solutions will occur  Security is paramount – Multi-protocol and real-time nature of IP telephony and Unified Communications traffic demands sophisticated stateful defense strategy – Signaling attacks are simplest to launch  Today’s data-focused security solutions are not enough – Lack ability to dynamically correct VoIP connectivity issues – Unable to perform VoIP signaling/media deep packet inspection – Cannot solve protocol interoperability problems For more information contact us at www.packetbase.com or 866.405.3992 - © 2010 Avaya Inc. All rights re
  • 10. 10 Enterprise and contact center security threats  Denial of Service – Call/registration overload – Malformed messages (fuzzing)  Configuration errors – Mis-configured devices – Operator and application errors  Theft of service – Unauthorized users – Unauthorized media types  Viruses & SPIT – Viruses via SIP messages – Malware via IM sessions – SPIT – unwanted traffic Source: Nemertes Research Enterprise Adoption of Collaboration Tools Increased usage of collaboration tools means security threats are more of a concern For more information contact us at www.packetbase.com or 866.405.3992 - © 2010 Avaya Inc. All rights re
  • 11. 11 How are SBCs different from firewalls?  Traditional firewalls cannot: – Prevent SIP-specific overload conditions and malicious attacks – Open / close RTP media ports in sync with SIP signaling – Track session state and provide uninterrupted service – Perform interworking or security on encrypted sessions – Scale to handle thousands of real-time sessions – Provide carrier-class availability – Solve multi-vendor SIP interoperability problems  InfoSec best practice = deploy defense-in-depth model with application-level security proxies for email and web applications – This means firewalls alone are not sufficient – Same model applies for IP telephony, UC and CC applications For more information contact us at www.packetbase.com or 866.405.3992 - © 2010 Avaya Inc.

  • 12. 12 SBC vs. Firewall with ALG  Terminates, re-initiates and initiates signaling & SDP  Two sessions - one on each side of system  Layer 2-7 state aware  Inspects and modifies any application layer header info (SIP, SDP, etc.)  Static & dynamic ACLs  Unable to terminate, initiate, re- initiate signaling & SDP  Single session dialog across system  Layer 2-4 state aware  Inspects and modifies only application layer addresses (SIP, SDP, etc.)  Static ACLs only SBC SIP trunk IP PBX UC server Data center SIP trunk IP PBX UC server Data center FW with ALG For more information contact us at www.packetbase.com or 866.405.3992 - © 2010 Avaya Inc.
