[asterisk-users] Get a SHAKEN Identity Token (Alexander Perkins)

Thanks Joshua, that was warranted IMO. I have to admit I am curious 
about his solution, though, and maybe we can turn this into a discussion 
about how we are handling STIR/SHAKEN collectively.

Our biggest issue is the fact that we use (our own) LCR to choose 
outbound routes for calls in real-time.  An outbound call could end up 
on any of several upstream providers, not necessarily the one that 
"owns" the DID that is making the outbound call.  Because of this we 
cannot rely on our upstreams to be the originating carriers - they won't 
be able to sign for calls from DID numbers they have no record of. We 
aren't alone in this, and Bandwidth.com is making noise about this issue 
and the "forward" problem, where we bounce a call to another number, and 
the original token info is lost.  I'm pretty sure this lands us in the 
"need to be an originating provider and generate crypt tokens".  I'm 
only just beginning diving into what that entails.

So how does this guy get around it?  It sounds to me like he is offering 
to sign calls for whoever, which IMO totally defeats the purpose.  So if 
I am some spammer and find my calls are rejected, I can just get him to 
sign them for me?  If I were him I would get a bunch of lawyers ready 
for when he becomes responsible for what they end up doing.  Isn't that 
the whole idea?
