The Voice over IP Security Alliance is responding to security threats by its first comprehensive list of Voice over IP (VoIP) security threats. The "VoIP Security Threat Taxonomy" provides a clear and concise view of VoIP threats, and aims to provide core definitions that give specific meaning to privacy and security.

"The importance of this accomplishment is that it gives a foundation to all future discussions on VoIP security that are both technically and socially informed. Until now, the public has been uncertain about the various threats, how risks related to each other and technical trade-offs. This is fundamental to all future work in the field." said Jonathan Zar, secretary and outreach chair for VOIPSA, head of the taxonomy project and senior director for SonicWALL.
