The STIR / SHAKEN Cert is a necessary prerequisite step for call origination providers to adopt to authenticate telephone calls in the future.
The adoption of this standard helps to mitigate spoofing, robocalling, scam calls, etc.

ConnexCS doesn't provide the STIR / SHAKEN Certificate.
You must get it from a designated authority, such as Ofcom or the FCC (for the FCC, this began June 30, 2021).
Once you have the certificate, it's added to ConnexCS as described in the steps below.
See Wikipedia STIR / SHAKEN and the FCC Report on Selection of Governance Authority and Timely Deployment of SHAKEN/STIR for details.
