Britain Yet to Decide on 5G Security Policy

UK Security Heads Say They Can Handle Potential Huawei 5G Threat

Britain has not seen any evidence of malicious activity by Huawei, the head of its National Cyber Security Center told the same conference.

"Because of our 15 years of dealings with the company and ten years of a formally agreed mitigation strategy which involves detailed provision of information, we have a wealth of understanding of the company", he said, noting that Huawei kit is not deployed in any sensitive networks. It wasn't quite the briefing that I got about them (Huawei).

In December, EE said it would not be using Huawei equipment in the core of its 5G network and was in the process of removing its hardware from the core of its 3G and 4G networks.

Responding to the US' allegations that the company is a security risk to Western countries, Ren Zhengfei, founder of Huawei, told the BBC: "There's no way the United States can crush us".

Large amounts of money and resources are at stake as Huawei is deeply involved in European telecoms networks.

According to Huawei Technologies Deputy Chairman of the Board and Rotating CEO Eric XU, the firm is investing at least US$2billion to enhance its software engineering capabilities as the cornerstone that enables Huawei to realize its long-term aspiration.

The RUSI report assessed the ways the Chinese are spying and using so-called "soft power" to achieve their aims in the UK.

"In the 1,200 or so significant cybersecurity incidents the NCSC has managed since we were set up, the country of origin of suppliers has not featured among the main causes for concern in how these attacks are carried out", he said.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said essentially the same thing on Wednesday, saying the country had to make its own decisions about Huawei regardless of its intelligence relationships with Five Eyes members.

"Because of these intelligence laws, we have to deal with risk assessment".

Canada has yet to make a decision on the issue.

Authorities and telecom operators in countries such as Germany, Norway and the Czech Republic have been reassessing Huawei's role in 5G networks while Australia, New Zealand and Japan have already moved to curb the use of its gear to varying degrees.

"Some politicians have turned either 5G or cyber security into political or ideological discussions, which I believe are not sustainable".

Ren Zhengfei told "CBS This Morning" that the allegations that he is coordinating with Chinese intelligence officials or unwittingly supplying them with eavesdropping tools are not based on facts.

Martin said Huawei had accepted the findings of the report and pledged to address them, but acknowledged that doing so would take some years.

But he insisted the NCSC is closely monitoring Huawei and said it would not give the all-clear unless there is sufficient evidence. Furthermore they could not find any proof that Huawei has done anything wrong when it comes to their networking solutions, and in particular that the security holes identified by the United States were inconclusive.
