Comments on: Huawei? The how, what, and why of telecom supply chain threats News, Views, and Insight from the ESET Security Community Mon, 03 Feb 2014 08:49:00 +0000 hourly 1 By: Tommi Tue, 09 Oct 2012 13:35:26 +0000 Thanks for the heads-up, Stephen. The thought could be spun a little further – your point on the supply chain for U.S. vendors is quite clear – in my eyes it could be easy for a government of a "suplier's" country to force them to integrate "certain functionalities" already in chipsets and so on. But who tells U.S. customers that the U.S. government would not also fall for such a thought "in-house"? Besides the fact that the U.S. economy has a huge interest in "Buy american!" ;)
It will be pretty interesting how such topics will develop and also influence the political debate with technically (and economically) highly important but politically also highly doubtful countries like China and more…!
