3.13.14[a]

  • Determination Statement

    Use of voice over internet protocol (VOIP) technologies is controlled.

  • Requirement

    Control and monitor the use of Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) technologies.

  • Requirement Discussion

    VoIP has different requirements, features, functionality, availability, and service limitations when compared with the Plain Old Telephone Service (POTS) (i.e., the standard telephone service). In contrast, other telephone services are based on high-speed, digital communications lines, such as Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN) and Fiber Distributed Data Interface (FDDI). The main distinctions between POTS and non-POTS services are speed and bandwidth. To address the threats associated with VoIP, usage restrictions and implementation guidelines are based on the potential for the VoIP technology to cause damage to the system if it is used maliciously. Threats to VoIP are similar to those inherent with any Internet-based application. [SP 800-58] provides guidance on Voice Over IP Systems.
