Security

How can I secure my UA (User Agent)?
If you are using an IP PBX, such as Asterisk...etc, or software/hardware, also known as a UA, which allows one to access it from the internet then proper precautions should be taken to secure and protect your UA.

If you are running an IP PBX we strongly recommend you read our security considerations guide.

You should ensure that your configurations are secured by strong passwords and only allow access to specified users. For users who have more advanced configurations you may allow access only from certain IP addresses and may also want to block well known ports which are not in use, such as SSH, FTP, HTTP, HTTPS...etc.

Please note that Callcentric is NOT responsible for a users UA being compromised. We hold no financial responsibility over your UA not being configured for proper security or proper tests being done to prevent unwanted access.
