This paper will cover the basics of unified Communications. What it is, how it works and how it is vulnerable to attack. I will begin with a short discussion on how the Unified Communications Server fits into the traditional communications networks of telephone, voice mail, fax, and Email, and the new technologies involved in making a messaging environment a communications environment. The paper will then discuss the security implications of unified communications particularly focusing on new technologies and how traditional technologies are exposed in new ways. Finally I will finish up by discussing design of a secure Unified Communications Environment.
