==== Security Notes with Asterisk ==== PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING IMPORTANT SECURITY RELATED INFORMATION. IMPROPER CONFIGURATION OF ASTERISK COULD ALLOW UNAUTHORIZED USE OF YOUR FACILITIES, POTENTIALLY INCURRING SUBSTANTIAL CHARGES. First and foremost remember this: USE THE EXTENSION CONTEXTS TO ISOLATE OUTGOING OR TOLL SERVICES FROM ANY INCOMING CONNECTIONS. You should consider that if any channel, incoming line, etc can enter an extension context that it has the capability of accessing any extension within that context. Therefore, you should NOT allow access to outgoing or toll services in contexts that are accessible (especially without a password) from incoming channels, be they IAX channels, FX or other trunks, or even untrusted stations within you network. In particular, never ever put outgoing toll services in the "default" context. To make things easier, you can include the "default" context within other private contexts by using: include => default in the appropriate section. A well designed PBX might look like this: [longdistance] exten => _91NXXNXXXXXX,1,Dial,Tor/g2/BYEXTENSION include => local [local] exten => _9NXXNXXX,1,Dial,Tor/g2/BYEXTENSION include => default [default] exten => 6123,Dial,Tor/1 DON'T FORGET TO TAKE THE DEMO CONTEXT OUT OF YOUR DEFAULT CONTEXT. There isn't really a security reason, it just will keep people from wanting to play with your asterisk setup remotely.
