Understanding Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP)
Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) is a form of communication that allows you to
make phone calls over a broadband internet connection instead of typical analog
Basic VoIP access usually allows you to call others who are also receiving calls
over the internet. Interconnected VoIP services also allow you to make and receive
calls to and from traditional landline numbers, usually for a service fee. Some VoIP
services require a computer or a dedicated VoIP phone, while others allow you to use
your landline phone to place VoIP calls through a special adapter.
This paper discusses the advantages and disadvantages of using VoIP services,
focusing primarily on security issues that may affect those who are new to VoIP.
