Taiwanese foundries

I imagine some people may decide it is beneficial to source hardware from Taiwanese foundries, given that politically, that area is not mainland Chinese, Russian, or American/5-9-14-eyes controlled. Of course, you would still need to ensure that your supply chain has not been subverted in some way, given the example of the NSA and Cisco.

Assuring that your hardware has not been Trojanned is a hard problem, which the vast majority of people don't need to worry about. I have every sympathy for those whose job such assurance is.
