US claims Huawei can secretly access carrier backdoors

As per the US government, Huawei can reportedly access the networks it helped build that are being used by mobile phones around the world. The WSJ, quoting US officials, said the Chinese tech giant has been using backdoors intended for law enforcement for over a decade. The backdoors were inserted for law enforcement use into carrier equipment like base stations, antennas and switching gear.

To summarize: a US government official is warning that a Chinese telecom equipment manufacturer might use "backdoors" that the US government requires to be built in the telecom equipment? In other words, "we choose which companies are allowed to participate in the telecom business and which are not"...

Like the SSL exploit of a few years ago, back doors and network monitoring designed to enable law enforcement and anti - terrorism can be rapidly converted into surveillance of dissidents. We aren't as far down the path of government totalitarian control as the Chinese, but we're moving the same direction. Our founders knew that the federal government needed to be restrained, but they are dead and gone and now SCOTUS decides what our rights are. It's only a matter of time.

It is true. Worked with Huawei equipment. It does have mysterious traps and backdoors.
