  • DrCaleb: And that's how this decision should be made, in the private sector, not government.
  • BartSimpson: Government impacted the move because government agencies would be barred from using the Huawei crapnets.
  • DrCaleb: And private carriers could never trust their equipment wasn't compromised, even if it were edge gear as the UK was proposing.
  • herbie: Oh for FFS you still going on we're too fucking stoopid to find and correct any spyware you're imagining exists?
    Maybe the Swedes and Norwegians are going to steal your souls now. Sell them to the UN Blue Helmets and New World Order....

    It's not imagination if it is shown to be ongoing. Pretty much every network appliance or equipment phones home, all the time. You can't use it, or many advanced features if it's not allowed to send and receive data from the mothership. Do you know what they are sending? Is it your SSL keys that you installed to enable encrypted communications? Did that new update suddenly start sending all your secrets to a third party who compromised the manufacturer?

    All of these things I can show you have happened. Russia, China, Israel, India - they all knock on our firewalls 24/7/365 looking for vulnerabilities, and Huawei has been shown to be an arm of the Chinese government through the Meng Wanzhou fiasco. Huweai have also shown perfectly willing to steal secrets for the Chinese government in the T-Mobile fiasco. And that was just last year!

    Why would they not use the opportunity to spy from the inside instead of hoping we misconfigure equipment somewhere? Can they really be trusted not to?
