The use of Internet technologies for emergency calling creates opportunities for fraud, relative to traditional circuit-switched emergency calling. This document describes the context for IP-based emergency calling, and the types of fraud which are possible within the system. A mitigation strategy for fraud against voice service providers is described; techniques for detecting or preventing other types of fraud will be incorporated in this document as they are available.
