What I have done in a similar situation is to use  force_send_socket in
Kamailio when sending INVITEs from your trusted host (your trunks) so that
it is coming in to Asterisk from a different port (say 5070), and then in
your Asterisk sip.conf settings create a new peer for this like so:


Now, when Asterisk receives an INVITE from it will match
this peer, whereas the rest, coming from, will match your
other subscribers.

Here is a bit of the Kamailio config:

if (is_method("INVITE"))
        # If call is coming from a trusted source (Trunk/PSTN) then we send
it to Asterisk from port 5070
        # so that Asterisk knows this is not coming from a subscriber. The
peer in Asterisk needs to be set with port=5070
        # as well as the host=<ip address>
        if (allow_trusted())
            xlog("L_INFO","Inbound to Asterisk from Trusted Source IP $si,
Caller: $fU, Callee: $rU with Call-ID $hdr(Call-ID)");
        } else {
            # This is a call from a registered subscriber.
            xlog("L_INFO","Inbound to Asterisk from $fU to $rU with Call-ID

NOTE: Kamailio must be set to listen on as well as your
usual ports for this to work! Also, your SIP Trunk trusted peers need to be
in the Kamailio trusted table, or explicitly test for the src_ip rather
than use allow_trusted().

Hope this helps.
