Abstract
The goal of this thesis is to investigate the security of the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP). This was accomplished by researching previously discovered protocol and implementation vulnerabilities, evaluating the current state of security tools and using those tools to discover new vulnerabilities in SIP software. The CVSS v2 system was used to score protocol and implementation vulnerabilities to give them a meaning that was used to compare the severity of protocol vulnerabilities versus the implementation vulnerabilities. Comparison between protocol and implementation vulnerabilities reveals that software remains the greatest weakness of SIP. One particular ...
