ACTION-40: Phones and scope






Out of scope:
 
Communications that are initiated by means of a telephone number including 
telephone calls and SMS messages regardless of whether Internet Protocol 
and/or Web Services are employed as a transport mechanism
 
 
Rationale:
 
While attacks against both the legacy telephone system and VOIP are 
increasing the architecture and governance of the telephone network and 
Internet are very different. In particular any communication that is 
initiated by means of a telephone number is effectively regulated by one 
or more governments at a detailed level regardless of where it is made. 
Remediation methods such as interception or termination that are routinely 
used to control telephone based fraud are challenging in the unregulated 
Internet environment where accountability is poor and even the determining 
who the responsible party is represents a significant challenge, let alone 
getting them to act.
