Andy Purdy: Why the US is so concerned about Huawei | Talk To Al Jazeera

    It's the world's number-one telecom gear supplier and number-two smartphone vendor after South Korea's Samsung.
    Huawei's revenue grew almost 20 percent in 2018, surpassing $100bn for the first time.
    But the Chinese technology company is at the centre of the trade war between China and the United States.
    Huawei is blacklisted by the White House, and US President Donald Trump said: "Huawei is something that's very dangerous. You look at what they've done from a security standpoint, from a military standpoint, it's very dangerous."
    Why is Huawei regarded as cybersecurity threat by the US? And is it an independent company or an arm of the Chinese government?
    "Right now, we have a geopolitical war between the US and China, and as the largest privately owned company in China and active in telecommunication markets in 170 countries …. we are kind of caught in the middle," Huawei's chief security officer in the US, Andy Purdy, tells Al Jazeera.
    "A number of government people have said it (the Huawei ban) is not really about the company, it's about the country, China. So, I think the fact that we are based in China raises some concerns ... The US is deeply concerned about China and the rise of China economically and militarily. And the US liked the world better when the US was still alone, as the powerhouse militarily and economically," Purdy says.
    "We seem to be being used as a sort of bargaining chip in a way as part of the China-US trade talks. And we don't want to be a bargaining chip. Because the China government doesn't speak through us and we don't want to speak through the Chinese government."
    On this episode of Talk to Al Jazeera, Andy Purdy, Huawei's chief security officer in the US, discusses the Huawei ban and the issues behind it.

All of those who pretend not to understand or are not intelligent enough to understand the threat that the use of Huawei poses to all intelligence agencies apparently have never read about the cold war, etc. Huawei has to follow whatever orders the Chinese communist leaders issue, including gathering intelligence for the PLA, etc. If they own and service any of the equipment used for 5G they can use it to listen in on telephone conversations between politicians or police or military or other personnel. Most importantly, the Chinese communists have their cadres operate companies that are closely linked to the CCP. Thus, they have been using PLA military intelligence to conduct industrial espionage to profit their cronies' companies. You can even remotely hack into phones, so you can listen in on what persons in a particular room say. The same applies to TVs, etc., anything with computer chips-- so long as you can access the network on which they are connected. That is why I will never buy "connected appliances." If EU countries are foolish enough to allow this, they will suffer the consequences, sooner or later. (Note that the CCP is discontinuing use of foreign equipment, etc., to prevent any other country from using such tactics against them.)

I could only read the first few comments to understand you people are not business minded. The CCP is run by 80,000 or 90,000 families that make all the rules and money in China’s communist system.The real people that do not have a say are the billions that are the slaves that make all the products that every class of North American uses in daily life. Business rules 1 o 1 two companies sell the same product. North American CO’s price is $6. Chinese CO sells its for $2 and is funded by those Chinese families CCP in power wipes out all others COMPETING in the marketplace in the world. One of you I>>>ts have lost your jobs for this kind of thing or someone in your family has. The only player left in the marketplace eventually would be China thats how we have lost lost our jobs in North America in since those golden years of the 1940’s 50’s 60’s when one family member worked for one company had a great sized home two cars and took the family on vacations every year. The poor people of the world are suffering due to the Chinese CCP because we allow them into our democracy to do business and they do not play by the rules. Manipulating their own currency when it suits them the list goes on and on of atrocities, not to mention the human rights violations they commit on those slaves that make them all the money on a daily basis. Wake up people for you all are slaves...! All of you that think America is a bully are slaves already and do not have common sense...

...dear Mr. Purdy, ...if Huawei, has confidence in the Canadian Justice system, as you say, I suggest that the two Canadians in affect held as hostages in China for the "Huawei Princess" should be released immediately, (at least, not held incognito, freed on bail charges having been laid). I ask, why such disruption? Indeed it is the Rule of Law, Justice seen, that Canadians are now concerned with: China's Integrity. And China has not demonstrated, a basis for this trust, frankly nor has Huawei, who in their silence, avoid the subject of "their" detention. If it is as partners, (one of the "Five Eyes" no less), Canadians defend (and promote) the credibility of Chinese enterprise, (having done so for so long), why has the Chinese Government exposed itself this way, treating Canada with Tariffs, insult, and such contempt? How does this advance their cause, for Humanity, (or their own People at home or abroad)? Are Huawei phones still sold in Canada, talk about Integrity; (...this is not "America"). This is Canada. ...like I said, partners; Rule of Law: (based on Universal Principals). From a Country and a People as great as China, this is not Leadership, or advancement.

Wow ... Huawei's chief security officer says Huawei isn't a threat. What a shock. The fact is that all telecommunications equipment runs on software, and the next software update can change the entire nature of a piece of equipment silently without your knowing it. All Chinese companies are subject to the whims of the Chinese Communist Party, and have CCP board members embedded within it by law. If the CCP wants something, they get it or you can be bribed, coerced, blackmailed, arrested, or disappeared. You don't even need C** complicity in modifications as trojan code can simply be implemented at the engineering level without anyone the wiser. Do you honestly think the CEO/COO/CFO read each line of the code? The CCP is actively engaged in attempts to steal IP, trade secrets, and military technology through cyber warfare and has been all along - embedding Chinese hardware in your infrastructure simply means that they have a much easier time getting those critical vulnerabilities in place wherever they may want them. The trust you have in a piece of technology ultimately comes down the the trustability of the weakest links and the integrity of those whose job it is to insure that the software and hardware are held to the highest ethical standards - and _nothing_ in China can stand up to that kind of scrutiny. Just look at the fraud perpetuated by Luckin Coffee, and the consequences of those actions: which is to say none. No one goes to jail for lying about earnings, and popular consensus in mainland China congratulates those responsible for taking advantage of those gullible westerners. No one can audit those Chinese companies (unlike their western counterparts) because their real numbers are said to be state secrets - so how can you trust anything they say?

Just mulling. Amongst other reasons. It all seem to have started in Canada arresting Huawei CFO Meng. For allegedly circumventing American sanctions and indirectly deal with Iran. Undermining American agenda. Wonder how many more of such dealings HuaWei has done ,thumbing their noses to American heavy handed bully tactics on weaker countries . And HuaWei just rather not play along with such underhanded tactics to impoverish and destabilize countries with Govts not enamoured to US . And hoping to set up regime changes to regimes friendly and cooperative to US. Afterall HuaWei dont have to take orders from US on who they can or cannot do business with.

China has ten internet stations in Canada and the US which are part of the internet backbone. They diverted the stream of data from North America to China where data was harvested, and once harvested, they sent the data back to North America with only a brief delay. (China will not permit Canada or the US to have stations in China). The US concern with having Wuawei build out the US's 5G network is a very real and legitimate concern. The CCP can command individuals and companies to hand over information if they claim that it has anything to do with national security. In the US, the government has to go through the courts to get a warrant to demand such information. And the US courts are not beholden to the government as Chinese courts are (they have a 99% conviction rate!). Google it (You won't find this information on Baidu (which should tell you something about free access to information in China vs. the US). "China Telecom, a state-owned telecommunications firm, has systematically diverted internet traffic in Canada and the United States by shunting it through its own network in an effort to commit espionage and steal intellectual property, two cybersecurity researchers say. Yuval Shavitt of Tel Aviv University and Chris Demchak of the U.S. Naval War College in Newport, R.I., published a paper recently in Military Cyber Affairs, the journal of the Military Cyber Professionals Association, outlining how China has been rerouting Canadian and U.S. internet traffic via access points it has set up legally in North America, ostensibly to improve service for its customers. Although the Chinese government has signed no-hacking agreements with numerous Western countries, including Canada and the United States, to prohibit direct attacks on computer networks, the accords did nothing to prevent the diverting of online traffic on key Western internet infrastructure, the authors say. "China Telecom has ten strategically placed, Chinese-controlled internet ‘points of presence’ (PoPs) across the internet backbone of North America,” Prof. Shavitt and Prof. Demchak say. “Vast rewards can be reaped from the hijacking, diverting, and then copying of information-rich traffic going into or crossing the United States and Canada – often unnoticed and then delivered with only small delays.”
