Unknown But Unavoidable: The Secret Ways of Chinese Telecom Giant Huawei
Almost a third of the planet is thought to be using its products and yet few know much about the highly secretive Chinese telecommunication equipment company Huawei. Should customers be concerned about the company founder's military background or the security vulnerabilities of its products?

>Two years ago, the company took a bold and radical step aimed at eliminating suspicions about its possible involvement in espionage. It set up the Cyber Security Evaluation Centre,
"Aimed at". And just from that, it's easy to see that they would be motivated to put out nothing but positive spin, Chinese style. The announcements will be "harmonized".
But if the British staff at CSEC really were doing the supposed work, and did find those router holes in two years (FX & Greg did so in apparently much less time), why would the UK still be so gung-ho for Huawei?
Ont he other hand, if they really had no findings, doesn't that raise some questions about CSEC's competence or objectivity especially considering that Huawei is the instigator of CSEC? Recurity didn't need Huawei skulking around the lab to do good work.
Unavoidable? Not for the US.
