Configure the VoIP security setting

 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2013, Exchange Online

Topic Last Modified: 2013-02-22

You can enable Voice over IP (VoIP) security for a Unified Messaging (UM) dial plan. By default, when a UM dial plan is created, it will use Unsecured mode or no encryption. Exchange servers can answer calls for single or multiple UM dial plans and can answer calls for dial plans that have different VoIP security settings.

When you configure a UM dial plan to use Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) secured or Secured mode, the Exchange servers that answer calls for the UM dial plan will encrypt the SIP signaling traffic (for SIP secured mode) or both the Realtime Transport Protocol (RTP) media channels and the SIP signaling traffic (for Secured mode).

ImportantImportant:
For on-premises and hybrid deployments, when you configure the SipTCPListeningPort, SipTLSListeningPort, or the UMStartUpMode on a Client Access server running the Microsoft Exchange Unified Messaging Call Router service or a Mailbox server running the Microsoft Exchange Unified Messaging service, you will need to configure the Windows Firewall rules correctly to allow SIP and RTP network traffic.

For additional management tasks related to UM dial plans, see UM dial plan procedures.

  • Estimated time to complete: Less than 1 minute.

  • You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure or procedures. To see what permissions you need, see the "UM dial plans" entry in the Unified Messaging permissions topic.

  • Before you perform these procedures, confirm that a UM dial plan has been created. For detailed steps, see Create a UM dial plan.

  • For information about keyboard shortcuts that may apply to the procedures in this topic, see Keyboard shortcuts in the Exchange admin center.

  1. In the EAC, navigate to Unified Messaging > UM Dial Plans, select the UM dial plan on which you want to change the VoIP security, and then click Edit Edit icon.

  2. On the UM Dial Plan page, click Configure.

  3. In General, under VoIP security mode, select one of the following options:

    • SIP secured

    • Unsecured (default)

    • Secured

  4. Click Save.

This example configures a UM dial plan named MySecureDialPlan to encrypt both SIP and RTP traffic.

Set-UMDialPlan -identity MySecureDialPlan -VoIPSecurity Secured

This example configures a UM dial plan named MySecureDialPlan to encrypt SIP but not encrypt RTP traffic.

Set-UMDialPlan -identity MySecureDialPlan -VoIPSecurity SIPsecured

This example configures a UM dial plan named MySecureDialPlan to not encrypt SIP and RTP traffic.

Set-UMDialPlan -identity MySecureDialPlan -VoIPSecurity Unsecured
