US Officials Have Evidence That Huawei Has Backdoor Access to Mobile Networks

The Infinite Brief
US officials say they have evidence that Huawei has backdoor access to mobile-phone networks around the world.

US hasn’t made evidence public but reportedly shared it with UK and Germany.

US officials said they have been aware of Huawei’s backdoor access “since observing it in 2009 in early 4G equipment.”

Telecom-equipment makers who sell products to carriers “are required by law to build into their hardware ways for authorities to access the networks for lawful purposes,” but they “are also required to build equipment in such a way that the manufacturer can’t get access without the consent of the network operator.”
