Caller ID spoofing

spoofspoofeda false origin is displayed
An orange box is a piece of hardware or software that generates caller ID frequency-shift keying (FSK) signals to spoof caller ID information on the target's caller ID terminal.
This method, informally called orange boxing, uses software that generates the audio signal which is then coupled to the telephone line during the call.

Vermilion box

One proposal to accomplish this involves an orange box used in conjunction with a magenta box, which in combination is called a vermilion box.
The vermilion box incorporates three more basic phreaking boxes: the magenta box, which generates the AC ringing signal required to make the target telephone ring; the orange box, which generates caller ID (although it is not a proper call-waiting caller ID orange box that is used but a modified orange box that generates on-hook (idle state) caller ID); and the beige box that is used to conduct the actual conversation.

A magenta box in conjunction with an orange box (which emulates the caller ID signal to create falsified data) is called a vermilion box.

It takes advantage of call waiting caller ID (also called off-hook caller ID) by mimicking the phone company's central office equipment and sending the call waiting tone followed by the audible caller ID data.

In software engineering, an orange box is any mechanism that records the sequence of events leading to a crash, in analogy to the flight data recorder (FDR) in airplanes, which is typically housed in an orange box to ensure visibility in the wreckage after a crash.
