United States claims Huawei has backdoor to all mobile networks

United States claims Huawei has backdoor to all mobile networks

As in the United Kingdom, all three network operator in Germany use the technology of Huawei, and outright ban could prove costly and delay the deployment of 5G for clients in all parts of the country.

"Equipment makers can only be trusted if they verifiably fulfill a clearly defined security catalog that rules out any influence from a foreign state on our 5G infrastructure", the document says.

A report by The Washington Post this week reveals how the Central Intelligence Agency has been using a crypto company for decades to monitor other countries.

"The United States shouldn't be sharing valuable intelligence information with countries that allow an intelligence-gathering arm of the Chinese Communist Party to operate freely within their borders", Cotton wrote.

Huawei denies the allegations, telling the Journal that it 'has never and will never do anything that would compromise or endanger the security of networks and data of its clients'. The Wall Street Journal is plainly conscious that the United States federal government can't offer any proof to support their accusations, and yet it still picked to repeat the lies being spread out by these United States authorities. This reflects The Wall Street Journal's bias against Huawei and undermines its credibility. According to the WSJ report, Huawei violates relevant laws and "can access the network secretly without the operator's knowledge through the backdoor on its device".

The Journal reported that the US has been aware of Huawei's alleged backdoor access since 2009, but officials declined to say if they've actually observed the company exploiting those loopholes.


Earlier it was reported that Huawei is planning to open in Europe, several centers for manufacturing equipment that would ensure the operation of mobile communication of the fifth generation (5G) in the EU. In this function, accessing consumer networks without their permission and presence would be hard.

"We do not have the ability to bypass carriers' access control and take data from their networks without being detected by all normal firewalls or security systems", a company spokesperson told Information Security Media Group. "This is where Huawei's obligations with regards to lawful interception end".

"Huawei doesn't develop or produce any interception equipment beyond this", the business stated.

This isn't Huawei's first run-in with the White House; the company has been accused for years of unfair trade practices and of being used by the Chinese military to spy on Americans.

"Why are so many smaller USA wireless companies working with Huawei, even after a 2012 government report warned that equipment from Huawei and ZTE could be used by the Chinese government for espionage?" asked FierceWireless' Tom Dano.

The United States/Huawei disagreement assists show the value of file encryption.
