Mark B. Cooper, president and founder of PKI Solutions, is known as "The PKI Guy" since his early days at Microsoft. He has deep knowledge and experience in all things Public Key Infrastructure (PKI). PKI Solutions Inc. provides consulting, training — including online training — and implements software solutions for Microsoft PKI and related technologies at enterprises, many of them Fortune 500 companies. PKI Solutions has led hundreds of PKI trainings, including private trainings, across the country and around the world. Cooper is an avid proponent of the SHAKEN/STIR global standard to end robocalls, that uses authentication and PKI to verify callers’ identities. Prior to founding PKI Solutions, Cooper was a senior engineer at Microsoft, where he was a PKI and identity management subject matter expert who designed, implemented, and supported Active Directory Certificate Services (ADCS) environments for Microsoft's largest customers.<br><br>'''Segment Topic:'''<br>How SHAKEN/STIR and PKI will end the global robocall problem<br><br>'''Segment Description:'''<br>There is a new ecosystem underway that will impact everyone, especially the irritated people in the U.S. who have received more than 48 billion robocalls last year. This new ecosystem will hopefully put an end to these annoying and fraudulent robocalls calls, which the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) estimates will constitute more than half of all phone calls placed in the U.S. this year. The FCC and major telecommunications companies including Comcast, AT&T, and T- Mobile are behind a new, global technology standard called SHAKEN/STIR (Signature- based Handling of Asserted Information using ToKENs and Secure Telephony Identity Revisited) to combat robocalls and caller ID spoofing. This new standard addresses the issue of commercial robocallers who are impersonating other callers and committing fraud via Caller ID.<br><br>Public key infrastructure (PKI) is the backbone of the SHAKEN/STIR global technology standard. In order for the entire ecosystem to work, it needs to be created with a trusted PKI system as the base, using digital signatures in every single call, which are verified and authenticated.<br><br>'''Segment Resources:'''<br> * https://www.darkreading.com/endpoint/shaken-stir-finally!-a-solution-to-caller-id-spoofing/a/d-id/1336285 * https://www.pkisolutions.com/shakenstir/
