Sorry, but my solution is vastly superior. Was it not understood?
It should have been realized that the core problem that we are dealing with is one of authentication. The ‘winning solutions’ are doomed to failure because they do almost nothing to address the core problem that caller ID can be effortlessly spoofed.
My solution involves a very unique application of public key infrastructure. I argue that it is by far the most practical, simplest, and most rapidly deployable solution that will ACTUALLY WORK. It requires only a one-time update on behalf of either telephone companies or calling device developers, yet universal deployment is not needed before it starts to work.
A vast number of legal callers will have their calls authenticated after the participation of a small number of companies. In relatively short time universal authentication of calls will be inevitable as the only one-time participation of a finite number of companies is required.
It has the following properties:
- It will authenticate all calls. Conventional landline phones as well as personal computer based phone calls will be authenticated.
- Legal robocallers will not be blocked.
- Calls that are legally spoofed will not be blocked.
- Legal calls that use caller ID blocking will not be blocked.
- It will be completely invisible to the consumer.
Can anyone point out a flaw in this system? If so, I would like to know it.
