|Summary:||ASTERISK-17652: permit/deny for hostnames|
|Date Opened:||2011-04-06 12:42:14||Date Closed:||2011-06-07 14:00:44|
|Description:||Please re-consider https://issues.asterisk.org/bug_view_advanced_page.php?bug_id=781.|
While hostnames can be spoofed, allowing for setting something like allow=mydynamicip.dyndns.org ADDS an additional level of security above just the username/secret check.
From a user perspective, this has value.
Perhaps, re-using some of the code for the externhost feature for this would make the addition of this feature feasible?
By the way, the original reporter in 2004 for ASTERISK-7400781, also included a suggestion for ranges as well. That might also be a good idea but I would emphasize the hostname functionality as greater value to security.
