National Security Telecommunications Advisory Committee, An Assessment of the Risk to the Security of the Public Network (Apr. 1999) (not available online).

Overview Edit

This report concluded that its 1995 findings regarding the overall vulnerability of the public network (PN) are still valid — old vulnerabilities are still being exploited, even though fixes are readily available for most of those discovered; vulnerabilities in many of the PN's diverse technologies (e.g., SS7, IN, ATM, and SONET) remain unaddressed; and technologies and networks are highly interconnected.
