Summary : Asterisk, the Open Source PBX, is highly regarded and heralded by masses of eggheads as the next killer DIY app. You've been to their presentations and have overheard their conversations at the bar: "Imagine having all the power of a large commercial PBX in your home. Asterisk gives you this power --- Multiple extensions, advanced call routing, separate voice mail boxes -- plus a lot more." This presentation will take a look at the potential business and home uses of Asterisk. We will then consider the many security issues inherent to most VoIP deployments and showcase the SIPinator, our appliance created to exploit one of our favorite vulnerabilities.
