Huawei will help set up a research centre in Bangalore dedicated to checking out foreign kit for covert listening technologies, something Huawei obviously knows nothing about. The centre has already started operating on a pilot basis, but is funded for expansion, according to The Times of India. Who is paying – and how much – …
So the crazies are running the asylum.
sealed up for decryption if/when necessary ...
who are they kidding. That code is being studied the moment it arrives in India.
except that the iisc has some of the best brains on the planet
i doubt huawei would be allowed to get away with any shenanigans.
From the department of useless facts ...
Times, 29 March 2009, Spy chiefs fear Chinese cyber attack, http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/uk/article5993156.ece :
"... equipment installed by Huawei, the Chinese telecoms giant, in BT's new communications network could be used to halt critical services such as power, food and water supplies ..."
"Ministers expressed concern that replacing the Chinese components with British parts would clash with government policy on competition."
This is the same Huawei that the US senate blocked from buying 3Com because it's basically the Chinese army's networking division ?
The Indian government is paying the PRC to have the PLA confirm that it's spy kit laden switchery is not so spy-laden.
Wonder how much graft the Indian government is getting from the PRC in return for this?
And of course, no one, save for those dastardly Chinese,
would ever, ever dream of installing covert listening software on kit sold to foreign nations. Never, never, never !...
Slap yourselves upside the head, once more, laddies !...
Yet Again more racism
The old chesnuts keep coming out. US senate were upset that a chinese company wanted to buy 3COM and the old farts at the MOD quoted (Spy Chiefs) as feariing chinese spy war. Load of old tosh.
Huawei have invited the US Senate to investigate their links with the chinese government.
This is just racism.
