SHAKEN allows the originating service provider to create a digital signature that attests to the users right to use the telephone number shown in the caller ID. But in today’s network, many enterprise customers control the caller ID without input from the service provider. This creates a challenge: how can the originating service provider determine if the enterprise has the right to use that number?
