Live and Let (Robocalls) Die

The PKI Guy Stirs Up Las Vegas at Black Hat USA 2019 & DEF CON 27

More than 48 billion robocalls were placed in the U.S. last year alone.

The Federal Trade Commission estimates that more than half of all phone calls being placed in the U.S. in 2019 will be these annoying and fraudulent robocalls. Globally, the number of robocalls is skyrocketing as well.

New global technology standard: SHAKEN/STIR

Fortunately, there’s an important, new global technology standard called SHAKEN/STIR (Signature-based Handling of Asserted information using toKEN/Secure Telephone Identity Revisited) supported by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the top telecom companies that is shaking things up. It’s laser focused on stopping these robocall criminals. The PKI Guy’s favorite technology, PKI or Public Key Infrastructure, is the backbone of the SHAKEN/STIR technology and PKI is the key to this battle to put an end to fraudulent robocalls. Read more about how SHAKEN/STIR is getting real here.

Let’s work together to ensure all call identities are trusted globally. Live and Let (Robocalls) Die!

“Live and Let Die” Lyrics

*with The PKI Guy's Interpretation of the Lyrics (TPG text in blue)

When you were young and your heart
Was an open book
You used to say live and let live
(You know you did)
(You know you did)
(You know you did)

TPG: IN THE PAST, YOU COULD TRUST PEOPLE TO NOT MESS WITH YOUR SECURITY WITH BAD INTENT.

But if this ever changin’ world (TPG: CHANGING WORLD WITH MORE CYBERSECURITY ISSUES/CYBER CRIMINALS/ROBOCALLS THAN EVER BEFORE.)
In which we live in
Makes you give in and cry (
TPG: STOP THOSE ROBOCALLS!)
Say live and let (
ROBOCALLS) die 

Live and let (ROBOCALLS) die (TPG: PKI IS THE KEY, CORE TECHNOLOGY TO STOPPING ROBOCALLS.)

What did it matter to ya
When you got a job to do you got to do it well (TPG: PKI EXPERTS HELP PROTECT COMPANIES/PEOPLE. YOU SHOULD TAKE OUR PKI TRAINING COURSES TO BECOME A PKI EXPERT SO YOU CAN ENSURE YOU “DO IT WELL.”)
You got to give the other fella hell (
TPG: “FELLA” COULD BE INTERPRETED AS THE BAD GUY CYBER CRIMINALS OF ANY SORT WHERE PKI IS TOOL TO STOP/FIGHT THEM.)

But if this ever changin’ world
In which we live in
Makes you give in and cry
Say live and let (ROBOCALLS) die 
Live and let (ROBOCALLS) die

Say live and let (ROBOCALLS) die
Live and let (ROBOCALLS) die
Live and let (ROBOCALLS) die
Live and let (ROBOCALLS) die (THANKS TO PKI!)
