A unique, secure test bed will be used to investigate Voice over Internet Protocol vulnerabilities.

A University of North Texas-led collaboration is developing a geographically distributed, secure test bed to analyze Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) vulnerabilities. VoIP allows people to make toll-free phone calls over the Internet. Some 24 million U.S. households are predicted to use the new technology by 2008. The test bed project aims to identify security issues and solutions before damage is done.
