Secure SIP Failover for SRST

Feature Key Capacity Increase for Cisco Unified IP Phones

Longer SIP Authentication Name

Secure SIP Failover for SRST

Firmware release 8.5(3) provides support for secure calls on a Cisco Unified IP Phone running the SIP protocol to remain secure once the call fails over to SRST from Cisco Unified Communications Manager. In addition, this feature enables the user to verify that the call is still secure by the lock icon that remains on the phone display.

The SRST supports RTP and SRTP media connections according to how the security settings are configured on the IP Phone.

The system administrator configures SRST on a Cisco router to allow endpoints using SIP to register to SRST using SIP/UDP, SIP/TCP, and SIP/TLS/TCP.

An example of a complete secure configuration for the SRST is shown below:

voice service voip
srtp fallback
allow-connections sip to h323
allow-connections sip to sip
sip
url sips
srtp negotiate cisco
voice register global
security-policy secure
sip-ua
registrar ipv4:10.2.0.10 expires 3600
xfer target dial-peer
crypto signaling default trustpoint 3745-SRST strict-cipher

Note The default value for the CLI command security-policy is device-default. If the value is set to the default value, the existing transport mechanism will be accepted by and registered to the SRST on failover. If the value is set to secure, the SRST will only accept the following transport mechanisms in order to ensure the call maintains its secure state, if applicable—SIP/TLS/TCP.


An example of a complete device-default configuration for the SRST is shown below:

voice service voip
srtp fallback
allow-connections sip to h323
allow-connections sip to sip
sip
url sip
srtp negotiate cisco
voice register global
default security-policy
sip-ua
registrar ipv4:10.2.0.10 expires 3600
xfer target dial-peer

crypto signaling default trustpoint 3745-SRST

Beginning in firmware release 8.5(3), when an IP Phone endpoint using SIP is in a secure call that fails over to SRST from Unified CM, the user will continue to see the lock icon on the phone display, indicating the call remains secure. In previous releases, a SIP/TLS/TCP call that fails over to SRST will display the play arrow icon to indicate a non-secure call.

When IP Phones register to the SRST, if all segments of the call are SIP endpoints, all of the supplementary features are supported—conference, transfer, blind transfer, and call forward. If the segments of the call are both SIP and SCCP endpoints, only basic call is supported.

This feature is supported on the following IP Phones:

Cisco Unified IP Phone 7975G

Cisco Unified IP Phone 7971G-GE

Cisco Unified IP Phone 7970G

Cisco Unified IP Phone 7965G

Cisco Unified IP Phone 7962G

Feature Key Capacity Increase for Cisco Unified IP Phones

The feature key capacity increase for Cisco Unified IP Phones allows administrators to use all 48 additional keys on Cisco Unified IP Phone Expansion Modules 7915 and 7916.

A maximum of 56 keys can be configured for a Cisco Unified IP Phone 7975G and up to 54 keys can be configured for Cisco Unified IP Phones 7965G and 7962G.

The line capability increase includes Directory Numbers (DN), line information menu, line ring menu, and line help ID.

This section describes how to install firmware release 8.5(3) for SCCP, and includes these topics:

Firmware Upgrade Issues for SCCP

Firmware Installation Procedure for SCCP

Firmware Upgrade Issues for SCCP


Note For all SCCP firmware upgrades from firmware release versions earlier than 8.3(3) to version 8.5(3) or greater, you must first upgrade your firmware to version 8.5(2). Once you have upgraded to version 8.5(2), you can upgrade your IP Phone to version 8.5(3) or later.



Note This section applies to the Cisco Unified IP Phone 7971G-GE, 7970G, 7961G-GE, 7961G, 7941G-GE, 7941G, 7931G, 7911G, and 7906G.


The following upgrade issues apply:

If you are currently running firmware earlier than 6.0(2) on a Cisco Unified IP Phone and want to upgrade to 8.x(x), you must first install an intervening 7.0(x) load to prevent upgrade failure. Cisco recommends using the most recent 7.0(3) load as the intervening load to avoid lengthy upgrade times.

If you are currently running firmware 6.0(2) to 7.0(2) on a Cisco Unified IP Phone and want to upgrade to 8.x(x), you can do so directly. However, expect the upgrade to take twice as long as usual.

Device packs are required to enable IP Phones in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager database. For Cisco Unified CallManager 4.2 and earlier, these device packs are required. For Cisco Unified CallManager 4.3 and Cisco Unified Communications Manager 6.0 and later, you must run the device pack and reboot the Cisco Unified Communications Manager server.

To access the device packs, follow these steps:
