Today, the Secure Telephone Identity Governance Authority (STI-GA) and iconectiv, the US Secure Telephone Identity Policy Administrator (STI-PA), announced the availability of the Certification Authority Agreement (CAA). The CAA is a standardized, signed agreement between all approved Certification Authorities (STI-CA) and the STI-PA.
Earlier this month, registration opened for companies interested in becoming a Certification Authority for the nation’s Calling Number Verification Service, which is based on the SHAKEN framework to authenticate Caller ID and mitigate illegal robocalling. Following approval of their Certificate Practice Statement (CPS), the CAA is the last step for prospective Certification Authorities to officially participate in this service.
Prospective Certification Authorities currently participating in the CPS vetting process that are interested in reviewing the CAA, may request access by emailing iconectiv at STIPA@iconectiv.com.
