16:45-17:15 ♦ The Various Ways Your RTC May Be Crushed
Sandro Gauci, Owner Enabled Security, Germany
From the author of SIPVicious (aka friendly-scanner), this presentation is taking a look at how attackers may bring to its knees an RTC system running on a decent setup (i.e. a medium sized telco, or a large RTC platform). It will cover the various attack vectors that have been explored in our past work, including the obvious (e.g. SIP, websockets) and the less obvious (e.g. recording systems). Additionally, it will discuss how rate limiting and other security solutions may be bypassed, subverted and become harmful in certain situations. Demos will be included to illustrate the beauty of it all.

12:30-13:30 ♦ Lunch Break
13:30-13:55 ♦ Dealing With Outages
Simon Woodhead, CEO Simwood, UK
There’s two types of company: those who have had an outage and those who are going to have an outage. Their impact can be diminished through good architecture and planning but we are all likely to find ourselves responding to, possibly alone, a service affecting issue? What do you do? Through the real life account of Mr Black (name changed) we’ll look at what he did when in this situation, and what, eventually, the speaker lead him to do based on years of experience and lots of practice doing it wrong!
13:55-14:00 ♦ SimCon Awards 2019
Presenting the SimCon Awards 2019.
14:00-14:30 ♦ What Can You Do With Wazo And How Kamailio Can Help Us
Sylvain Boily, CTO Wazo, France
One of the typical problems nowadays is how to build a business oriented voice application to support both customers and partners, each with specific workflows, when the existing legacy solutions are too rigid, too complex, too expensive, too locked, too … Wazo is an open-source programmable platform for telecommunication that lets its users create value and build innovation on top without the traditional vendor lock-in. Our primary goal is to unlock your communication! We will show an example how a customer connected its existing business applications to our platform as well as how we provided an “infrastructure as code” for this particular case so that its service could scale and evolve easily.
14:30-15:00 ♦ What Is Going On In The World Of Asterisk?
Matthew Fredrickson, Manager Of The Asterisk Project, Digium, USA
The goal with this presentation is to talk a little bit about Digium’s recent acquisition and keep everybody informed on the current state of the Asterisk project. This will include what’s happened in the most recent major release of Asterisk, as well as what’s going on as we prepare for a new major release.
15:00-15:30 ♦ 12 Years Journey With Kamailio
Yufei Tao, VoIP Consultant, PhD and PostDoc University of York, UK
From my 12 years experiences working with SIP and Kamailio, building SIP client software and implementing SIP servers, I have learned a lot from the work and the Kamailio community. With this sessions I am aiming to share some of my experiences and couple of nice tricks, which hopefully would be interesting and useful to the community, especially for new comers, but not only. They can be directly related to technical aspects of building VoIP systems with Kamailio and RTPEngine, such as SBCes, or to the social side of the open source community interactions.
15:30-16:00 ♦ Coffee Break
16:00-16:30 ♦ What The Fuzz! Or Why You Should Really Fuzz Your RTC Code
Lorenzo Miniero, Co-Founder Meetecho, Italy
In the past few months, fuzzing has become a hot topic within the context of RTC projects. In fact, while in principle this is not strictly speaking a new or innovative approach (past Kamailio editions, and the latest one in particular, have already been home to some excellent talks on SIP fuzzing, for instance), its application to RTC projects, and WebRTC in particular, has always been limited up until very recently, when a blog post on Google’s Project Zero highlighted several key vulnerabilities in known and widespread multimedia applications. This sparked the interest, among WebRTC developers, on fuzzing their applications as well. Considering how complex the whole suite of WebRTC protocols is (ICE, DTLS, SRTP, RTP/RTCP, data channels, and even codec-specific payload access), there are several aspects that go beyond pure signalling and require dedicated considerations.

This talk will address some of the efforts most projects have taken in that direction, with a few additional details on how we tackled that in our Janus WebRTC server in particular. It will describe the process we followed with practical examples, and how we applied the same concepts to different protocols (RTP, RTCP, codec-specific payloads and SDP in particular) in order to make the implementation as robust as possible. Some considerations will also be provided on the steps we took to integrate fuzzing as part of the whole development process, on other fuzzing techniques that might be used, and on how this pattern could be deployed in existing scalable infrastructures to execute tests in a distributed way thanks to frameworks like OSS-Fuzz.

16:30-17:15 ♦ Your Deployment On Stage – 5 Minutes 5 Slides

12:30-13:30 ♦ Lunch Break
13:30-14:00 ♦ Voice Over RTP != Video Over RTP
Tim Panton, CTO at |pipe|, UK
Many in the audience come from a VoIP (where V=Voice) background. Users however expect Video in their services and whilst both use the (S)RTP protocol on the wire, there are huge practical differences
between carrying voice and video. This talk describes the painful lessons I learnt when adding WebRTC Video to an existing technology stack. Hopefully this will make the transition easier for others. There will (of course) be demos and droids.
14:00-14:30 ♦ Advanced SIP: Communicating With Humans
Fred Posner, Owner The Palner Group, USA
Learning SIP was the easy part. Communicating with Humans requires the ability to adapt, improvise, and overcome. This presentation will discuss lessons learn and tips for how to better communicate with humans outside of the SIP protocol.
14:30-15:00 ♦ Building Your New Native Softphone With Web Technologies
Dan Jenkins, Founder of Nimble Ape, UK
Building native apps is a costly business; both in development time as well as developer costs. Web oriented web developers cost less than “pure” native developers for many reasons – but modern day web development techniques allow us to move super fast in development cycles. Want a new custom softphone for your VoIP business and don’t want to white-label an existing solution? Then you’re stuck building something that can handle all of Android and iOS’s nuances with integration into iOS’s CallKit and Android’s Connection Service as well as giving the user the best quality audio and call set up times experienced. The answer is to build your native app with Web Technologies using WebRTC and all of the libraries that bridge the gap between Web and Native. I’ll show you how those two worlds join and some of the things we have to think about.
15:00-15:30 ♦ Designing A Scalable Billing System Using Blockchain Technology
Fabio Tranchitella, Evosip Cloud, Italy
Why and how created a real time scalable cloud native distributed billing platform for Kamailio with Docker and Kubernetes, with particular emphasis on security and consistency with hyperledger fabric blockchain technology for service providers.
15:30-16:00 ♦ Coffee Break
16:00-16:30 ♦ Kamailio As An SBC: Definitive Answers
Alex Balashov, Owner Evariste Systems, USA
The question is frequently asked in the larger user community: can Kamailio serve as a Session Border Controller (SBC)? vThe aim of this presentation is to convince you that while the answer is rather generally “yes”, this is the wrong framing of the question. We will briefly explore the role of SBCs in the service provider voice network and where Kamailio fits in, and how the movement of RTC service providers to the cloud is shaping the next iteration of folk wisdom on service provider network architecture and best practices.
16:30-17:00 ♦ SIP3 For Troubleshooting, Monitoring And VoIP-services Metrics Analysis

17:00-17:30 ♦ Making Kamailio More Inclusive And Easier To Adopt
Mack Hendricks, Founder dSIPRouter Project, USA
When the work on dSIPRouter started, the goal was (and still is) to create a UI that would make installing and configuring Kamailio much easier. We wanted to provide a prescriptive way to use Kamailio and as people became more comfortable they would use the Kamailio.cfg file we provide as a basis to create more sophisticated use cases or they would move to using Kamailio directly. In this session, I will give your an overview of the dSIPRouter project and walk you thru how people are learning Kamailio using this project and how carriers are using this project to help expedite scaling out their environment.
17:30-17:55 ♦ Replication Mechanisms For Multi-Node Kamailio Platforms
Daniel-Constantin Mierla, Co-Founder Kamailio, Germany
Kamailio offers several mechanisms to replicate data and states between different nodes in a VoIP platform. One can choose from low lever TM based replication functions, to PubSub architecture, database layer mirroring or going with the all-in-one solution DMQ (distributed message queue) with node auto discovery. This presentation shows all of them, when one suits better than the others and what are the aspects to be taken in consideration for various use cases, such as replication for user location, active calls or in memory hash tables.
