China to demand source code from hardware makers?

Posted on Friday, October 10 2008 @ 05:11:55 CEST by


A report surfaced on Slashdot that claims hardware makers who wish to sell certain products in China will need to send the source code to the Chinese government:
"Products expected to be subject to the system are those equipped with secret coding, such as [a] contactless smart card system developed by Sony Corp., digital copiers, and computer servers. The Chinese government said it needs the source code to prevent computer viruses taking advantage of software vulnerabilities and to shut out hackers. However, this explanation is unlikely to satisfy concerns that disclosed information might be handed from the Chinese government to Chinese companies. There also are fears that Chinese intelligence services could exploit such confidential information by making it easier to break codes used in... digital devices."
