Configure Ingress Trunk

Class 4 provides built-in functionalities to verify stir/shaken identity header and sign call using stir/shaken certificate.

By default, class 4 automatically pass the stir/shaken identity header from ingress trunk to egress trunk. Class 4 can also be provisioned to sign calls that don't have stir/shaken header. To enable Class 4 to sign call, you will need to configure Stir/Shaken in both ingress trunk and egress trunk.

Stir/Shaken setting in the ingress trunk defines what attestation is to be used to sign call. Stir/Shaken setting in the egress trunk defines whether a call should be signed when it is being passed to the egress trunk.
