    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (173 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This article presents the challenges and compares the alternatives to interoperate between SIP-based systems and the emerging standards for web real-time communication (WebRTC). We argue for an endpoint- and web-focused architecture, and present both sides of the SIP in JavaScript approach. Until WebRTC has ubiquitous cross-browser availability, we suggest a fallback strategy for web developer: de... View full abstract»

    In this article we describe Source Address Validation Implementation (SAVI), a security architecture being standardized by the IETF to prevent source address spoofing within a link. SAVI devices, usually layer 2 switches, create bindings between the IP address of a node and a property of the host¿s network attachment, such as the port through which the packet is received. Bindings are creat... View full abstract»
