Stir/Shaken Quick Facts
What is Stir/Shaken?
With STIR/SHAKEN in place, phone calls are verified and signed using digital toKENs (also known certificates) so spoofed calls can be identified and displayed on caller ID or detected and stopped before they reach consumers, by validating every ANI and using the insertion of digital toKENs into every outbound call.
Under the STIR/SHAKEN national protocols, telephone calls without valid digital toKENs may be blocked or have phrases such as “Suspected Spam” “Spam Risk” or “Spam Likely.” inserted into the caller’s ID display. Valid toKENs will display phrases such as “Valid Call” on the caller’s ID display.
STIR/SHAKEN has a three-level system to categorize the essential information about the caller into levels of “attestation” for the call. The different levels describe the level of trust or proof a provider has in the caller’s right to use that particular number, with attestation levels ranging from 'A' to 'C'. These three different levels of operating Stir/Shaken toKENs will be issued, and inserted into the SIP header of each call.
What is the Deadline?
The TRACED Act was signed into law on December 30, 2019 and since many telecommunications carriers have already implemented STIR/SHAKEN technology, which allows citizens to receive a warning on incoming phone calls that may display phrases such as “Suspected Spam” “Spam Risk” or “Spam Likely.” or “Valid Call”
Every outbound call generator sending calls throughout or into the USA is required to use verified ANIs with digital toKENs attached ensuring calls reach their dialed destinations correctly.
STIR/SHAKEN is an FCC and Congressionally mandated program designed to reduce robocalling by the insertion of digital toKENs into every outbound call. It stands for Secure Telephone Identity Revisited (Stir) and Secure Handling of Asserted Information using toKENs (Shaken).

The simple description of the Stir/Shaken process
1 Call Connect receives the SIP data query from you;
Optional: We add a “verified caller-ID” from our ANI inventory (this can also be your existing ANIs that can be ported to 1 Call Connect's CLEC);
We produce our Service Provider signature certificate that has been generated by the national STIR/SHAKEN administrator, and is accepted by every major telephone carrier in the U.S. for termination;
We return the signature certificate to you, for insertion into your call SIP header. We also have produced an API where you can add/edit/delete any ANI in your account;
The destination call receiver will see a message which will display phrases such as “Valid Caller" in its caller ID screen. If the toKEN is B or C level attestation, the receiver may get a different message.
