Securing Asterisk

Only way to cope with hackers would be that Digium comes to its senses and accepts to disable any response to a REGISTER whose username is unknown. I cannot think of a good reason why Digium finds this proposal unacceptable, given the onslaught of hacking that we are seeing in the industry. It may take a single line of code and it would save millions of $$$. Not only because the hackers will never get in, but because we would save a huge CPU impact responding to hundreds of REGISTER attempts per minute. It is a NO brainer. Can please the Powers that Be reconsider and add this option to sip.conf?


Browser based SIP UA

I mean anything not an extension that can run on Linux (Apache/Tomcat).


Browser based SIP UA


can anyone recommend a browser based SIP client that works well with Asterisk?
I need something that requires authentication (based on Asterisks peer name and pass).

Thanks in advance!
