Proposal Title: AlertPrime: Tokenizing WEA
Topic Number: H-SB017.1-007
Phase: Phase I
Topic Title: Over-the-air Authentication Technology for Messaging via Emergency Alerts
Organization: NAND Technologies Inc
Address: 170 Shannon Woods Drive
Front Royal, VA 22630-9212  
Abstract: Currently all callerID displays on all cell phones are totally unauthenticated. This means that with the right software or hardware voice spammers can impersonate any corporation, individual or location. Ultimately the solution to this problem is to update the 3GPP standards and require this field to be validated and authenticated. Until that time NAND Technologies proposes to use a combination of techniques already being successfully applied to spam in other areas. The unique adaptions to voice form the basis of this proposal and can serve as an effective stop gap measure until the root cause of the problem is resolved. These methods and the linked applications can also serve as a case study for the needed standards updates.
