At Voicecon 2009 in Orlando this week Sipera Systems announced a new free tool for assessing unified communications and VoIP security. The OCS Assessment Tool, dubbed OAT, is available as a free download from Sourceforge.

According to the OAT download site, Sipera’s “VIPER Lab created OAT because OCS and other Microsoft products are frequently being used as part of a unified communications infrastructure in many enterprises. Our mission is to help IT manager and security practitioners evaluate the security architecture of their deployments and ensure that their mission-critical communications and systems are protected.”

OAT starts off with a dictionary attack against a known user. Once the password is determined, OAT can run a variety of UC / VoIP attacks against the OCS environment. OAT can be run internally, as if an authorized user is performing malicious or unauthorized activities, or as an external attack against OCS. OAT can perform the following functions:

  • Online Dictionary Attack
  • Presence Stealing
  • Contact List Stealing
  • Single User Flood Mode (Internal)
  • Domain Flood Mode (Internal)
  • Call Walk (Internal/External)
  • Play Spam Audio
  • Detailed Report Generation
