FCC Votes to Finalize Program to Replace Huawei Equipment in U S Networks
Article Title: FCC votes to finalize program to replace Huawei equipment in U S networks | Network Security.
When AT&T’s former chief information security officer, Chris Daniels, made the case in an earlier column for the New York Times, “Why Is The FBI’s Huawei Inquiry So Secret,” I wrote that the FBI’s announcement of its inquiry into the company’s technology had brought to light a “hidden” problem for the Department of Justice, which was to find an alternate path to exploit it. The new story of Huawei’s cooperation with the FBI, the report says, shows that the FBI, too, is learning how to access the companies of its adversaries. The FBI is using the companies’ equipment and even their software to bypass U. national security measures. Its own investigations of Iran’s alleged cyberweapons programs are being carried out with Huawei’s equipment.
“Once the FBI realizes it can tap Huawei’s network without the government’s permission, it can use that information to make its own illegal spying easier and more undetectable.
The report describes the FBI’s approach. In this case, “no one has been brought to account. In the vast majority of cases, the telecom companies that do business with the government have taken the FBI’s word that they have no knowledge of what they are doing. ” The report goes on to say that officials have “had to work to keep these secrets from the public, in the hope that no one will notice that Huawei is even there.
The story of Huawei and the FBI reveals some of the flaws that plagued the Obama administration’s attempts to bypass US national security regulations in its dealings with Chinese telecom companies. Most troubling is the extent to which the FBI has been able to manipulate the companies’ own equipment and software to carry out unauthorized surveillance. The FBI’s methods have not been disclosed.
The Huawei case may also point the finger at a problem that even the Obama administration’s critics at the National Security Agency would find hard to believe: that the government has been “able to tap Huawei’s network without the government’s permission.
Huawei and ZTE as national security threats to communications networks.
Article Title: Huawei and ZTE as national security threats to communications networks | Network Security.
Huawei and ZTE pose an enormous security risk to telecoms communications networks, a threat that cannot be ignored. Both companies have a growing customer list and have been subject to repeated fines or lawsuits over their use of the 5G communications network, and the new security arrangements their joint venture is making. The telecommunications networks that they are investing heavily in are global broadband networks, making their presence here even more likely.
Huawei and ZTE’s activities also raise a serious doubt about the reliability of the 5G telecommunications infrastructure, something that has never been a real concern for many telecoms operators in the past. The joint venture has stated that it will not put security in the 5G infrastructure but that it will focus on 5G network security itself, to make the network more effective. Some security experts have suggested that the joint venture between China’s Huawei and ZTE will be the first to invest in a 5G infrastructure, which has a lot of security benefits, including the possibility of 5G being used for commercial content, such as video.
The joint venture between ZTE and Huawei has now been established for over two years, and the two companies are actively developing their new security arrangements. Both companies are known for their poor record when it comes to securing communications, in part because of the fact that they do not have adequate security in their networks. Huawei and ZTE are clearly two of the most promising security companies to watch in 2018.
Huawei and ZTE have a long track record of violating network security. For years that has been a problem for the major telcos in China. ZTE became the first Chinese company to be sued by the US authorities in the US for taking advantage of an open Internet in China by intentionally flooding certain pages with advertisements, something that led to the ZTE lawsuit being dropped in 2014. Huawei was also the first Chinese company to be fined by the US for being an internet provider in the US.
There has also been a growing interest in a security assessment for the joint venture for years.
The FCC’s Final Order on U.S. Telecommunications Equipment
Article Title: The FCC’s Final Order on U S Telecommunications Equipment | Network Security.
The FCC is scheduled to release its final order on telecommunications equipment on Nov. This report describes the major issues raised in the order by the FCC in the course of its proceedings.
In its order it also noted that “[w]hile the FCC’s decision was motivated by a desire to eliminate all regulatory barriers to the introduction of new products and services in the telecommunications industry, the order does not set aside the agency’s findings on the merits.
(9) The FCC concluded that it would not be in the public interest to require that telecommunications operators label the telecommunications product, particularly where, like products advertised in connection with telecommunications services, such products bear no indication of their product’s connection to telecommunications services.
Consequently, to provide an additional incentive for the providers of telecommunications equipment and services to provide such information on their commercial offerings and make their product available to the end-user, the FCC found that a third party, unaffiliated with telecommunications operators, could be designated at “customer-request” as the sole representative of the end-consumer user of the telecommunications services to be included in the telecommunications equipment. In effect, the FCC found that the telecommunications equipment manufacturer was not required to label or otherwise disclose information with respect to products sold to end-consumer users unless a third party is designated as such user.
The FCC is currently reviewing the application of the above rules to products that include a communications device, such as cordless phones and cordless and cordless base stations.
In its order, the FCC determined that the “interconnection with local communication networks” that is an integral part of the “telecommunication” activities described in the Communications Act of 1934, 42 U. §153, et seq. , is an “end-user” activity as defined in the Communications Act of 1934, as amended, 47 U. §§2501, et seq.
The 2020 US Trade Warfare Warning
US Trade Warfare. How to stop the trade wars? One way is to start them NOW.
Since Trump took control of the American Presidency in May, the United States has launched a series of trade wars with China. The latest of these, Trump’s first on-record foreign trade actions, is a dispute over the so-called “Made in China” label on certain Chinese goods. These goods include things like washing machines and small appliances, which are labeled in China as Made in China on the basis of Chinese manufacturing, even though they are made in other countries.
This week, the Trump administration officially launched a trade war with China.
A few months ago, there were about 50 American and 5,000 Chinese factories in “Made in China” on the Chinese side of the border. Now these things are estimated to be somewhere between 12,000 and 15,000 across the border. This is a very significant change from a year ago, when the two sides were mostly in complete mutual peace.
In December, Trump’s own Justice Department said that there was a “reasonable basis” to believe that Chinese manufacturing might be dumping American goods on the Chinese market as a way to drive down the global value of the Chinese currency.
The Justice Department’s analysis was based on “an extensive and systematic” examination of information obtained from Chinese trade partners. A Chinese industry official, who requested anonymity, said that US officials had begun their “impartial” investigation of the matter “only after we observed that the Chinese were dumping American-made products into the China market.
On the day that the Trump administration declared the alleged dumping of American goods as a trade war, Trump called China a currency manipulator, but the US president did not name China and he did not mention the country’s alleged dumping. There is no indication, from press reports or from administration officials, that the Trump administration has said that it wants China to stop its currency manipulation.
The administration did say, however, that “trade is not the only tool we have at our disposal” in its fight with China.
The US president’s assertion, however, is not supported by statistics. There is not a single instance where the Chinese have dumped anything into the American market to drive down the value of the Chinese yuan.
