Huawei working with British intelligence to prove its hardware is backdoor-free

Posted on Monday, August 06 2012 @ 21:01:26 CEST by


Engadget reports Chinese telecom firm Huawei has opened a Cyber Security Evaluation Center in Banbury, UK to work together with GCHQ, the British signals-intelligence agency located in nearby Cheltenham, to offer proof that its telecom infrastructure and handsets don't contain backdoors. The firm is taking these measures because the US and other countries are suspicious about Huawei's hardware.
Since Huawei's president formerly served as a senior engineer in the People's Liberation Army of China, it's unsurprising that it's raised the hackles of the US and other countries. It's been blocked from a variety of prime, security-sensitive contracts on suspicion of espionage, but the Chinese company seems bent on proving its honorable intentions, and has opened a "Cyber Security Evaluation Center" in Banbury, UK to do exactly that. According to the Economist, the company will work closely with GCHQ, the British signals-intelligence agency located in nearby Cheltenham, to persuade the UK and other governments that its equipment is trustworthy. It even has security-cleared staff, including some from the British agency, to shake down the gear and ensure it can't be exploited by spooks or crooks.
