New ways to stop caller ID spoofing to be investigated

Fraudsters regularly use a fabricated caller ID to look like they are calling from a trusted source to convince people over the phone to hand over money. The current solution, which the Federal Communications Commission is urging telecom providers in the US to adopt, requires a globally trusted authority, but such authority is difficult to manage. Researchers at the University of Warwick will find new ways to tackle this problem without requiring trusted authorities or modifying the existing telecommunication infrastructure, thanks to a grant from the EPSRC.
