cisco router 2651XM running a sip trunk (call manager express)

IOS: c2600-adventerprisek9-mz.124-15.T9.bin

after having my sip account hacked I want to harden the encryption in my router. I'm fairly certain my sip details were hacked using packet sniffing but not 100% sure. My sip provider has changed my password but I'm reluctant to re-register with my sip provider because my new details will just get sniffed again. In the meantime I have changed all the router passwords to strong ones and I'm going to set up a logging trap as well.

How can I harden the encryption in my router?: - specifically the sip-ua section which currently looks like this in my config:


authentication username xxxxxxxx password 7 152552393279781D06

calling-info pstn-to-sip from number set xxxxxxxx

retry invite 2

registrar expires 3600


Thanks for any advice.
