re: What Huawei, ZTE Must Do To Regain Trust
Sounds like fodder to justify import/export negotiations or help american firms. Almost all the vendors (Chinese and Western alike) build in backdoors. Publicly the answer is for technical support of their product, but only the naive wouldn't suspect there is the possibility for it to be used for other purposes, repurposed for causes such as law enforcement (remember Govt requests for monitoring and backdoor access), or misused. Govts need to err on the side of caution and consider it as a fact that happens in a competitive, free enterprise economy not as a vague possibility and that China, with greater govt control of its industries, uses it to achieve their national objectives.

re: What Huawei, ZTE Must Do To Regain Trust
Western countries have been known to initiate Cyber attack of other countries' facilities. China is using a lion share of US companies hardware and software (HP, Windows, INTEL, AMD,etc). On security grounds China could ban western hardware and software products. How many western companies do not have veterans working for them? Also which IT company has not been involved in intellectual properties (pattern) disputes?

re: What Huawei, ZTE Must Do To Regain Trust
When reading this article one can't help feeling soft violins should be playing in the background. Here's Claburn asking how a company that has ransacked and stolen ideas and intellectual property from the major network equipment houses (and even found guilty in a Chinese court) and Claburn wonders how they can be rehabilitated.

Well what about a less politically correct article saying we want nothing to do with Huawei and ZTE otherwise we are simply rewarding bad behavior.

There is still strong evidence that China is using network technology to spy on all and sundry both inside and outside China. Indeed there is evidence that there have been instances when China has rerouted network traffic for who knows what purpose.

Consider the following article:

Come on Thomas, stop being so politically correct, grow some balls and state the reality as it is. You cannot trust these Chinese network companies.
