MFA: Ensure Network Security and Guard against Cisco and Apple instead of Huawei

Updated:2019/9/17 21:00

On September 16, Hua Chunying, the Foreign Ministry spokesperson, hosted the regular press conference. A reporter asked how China commented on the recent hype by the US over Huawei's 5G network security risks, requiring the US Department of Commerce to take immediate action to approve the sale of products to Huawei.

In response, Hua Chunying said that the US always stirs up trouble around the world as well as brings shame and attack on Chinese companies. However, there is no country, organization, company or individual giving any evidence to prove that Huawei poses a threat to them. In contrast, Cisco devices in the United States have security flaws. Since 2013, there have been 10 backdoor incidents. In 2014, Apple admitted in a statement that it can extract data such as SMS, contacts and photos through the backdoor of iOS.

She asked, if there is no prejudice, I wonder if I can conclude that if you want to ensure network security, you should guard against America’s Cisco and Apple instead of China’s Huawei. The head of Huawei has made public clarifications and commitments on security issues on various occasions, whereas whether the US can also make the same clarifications and commitments.
