Huawei says security issues could take five years to resolve

In a letter to Norman Lamb MP, chair of the science and technology committee, Ryan Ding, an executive from the controversial Chinese technology company, pledged to spend £1.5 billion over five years to address security issues flagged last year.

Vodafone, which has "paused" deployment of Huawei equipment in its core networks until Western governments give the Chinese firm full security clearance, has Huawei as one of its technology partners in 5G testing in Milan.

The government now has no own information on whether the Chinese company could be a security threat, Altmaier was quoted as saying, adding that the Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) had been activated.

The move, reported Thursday by Politico, would see the USA doing what it's been pressuring its allies to do: shut Huawei, the world's biggest telecoms equipment manufacturer, out of new networks that will support the upcoming "fifth generation" (5G) of mobile connectivity.

Beyond the Old Continent, Huawei-made equipment is already banned for federal use in the United States which is now pressuring its allies into following suit.

It states that Chinese organisations are obliged to "support, cooperate with, and collaborate in, national intelligence work".

Huawei wants cyber-security to be viewed as a technical rather than ideological issue and is open to supervision by European governments to prove the point, a senior company executive is expected to say on Thursday evening.

It said Russian Federation was violating the treaty's terms and had six months to become compliant. The US responded by saying it would withdraw and design its own treaty-busting missiles.


Huawei defended itself in a letter to United Kingdom lawmakers made public this week, saying that it would take up to five years to see "tangible results" in upgrading its systems.

July's report identified what it called technical problems which limited security researchers' ability to check internal product codes and concerns about the security of third-party components from a USA supplier.

The pleas come after Huawei's continuing battle with multiple governments, including Poland, Australia, New Zealand, United States and multiple other countries to prove it's not attempting to infiltrate 5G infrastructure builds to spy on the countries.

It is likely that Trump may sign an order banning use of Chinese telecom equipment in USA networks citing security issues.

Huawei has offered to launch a cyber security center in Poland, Tonny Bao, head of the company's Polish unit, said on Wednesday. "We are ready to establish a cyber security center in Poland if authorities accept this as a trusted solution", Bao said. In its turn, Germany said it hopes to adopt high data security standards for its 5G network.

Its chief financial officer Meng Wanzhou was arrested in Canada in December at the request of the US.
