‘Publish it, let the world see it,’ says Huawei on US evidence of alleged crimes

Yesterday, the United States Department of Justice filed a formal indictment against Chinese tech giant Huawei. The indictment accuses Huawei of some serious crimes, including racketeering, theft, and obstruction. Although the accusations are serious, the indictment doesn’t provide much evidence to support them.

Now, Huawei is calling for the US to make any of its evidence against the company public. Huawei maintains that is innocent of all crimes.

We just say: ‘Don’t hide it, don’t be shy. Publish it, let the world see it’,” said Huawei’s cybersecurity chief John Suffolk.

Suffolk is specifically referring to evidence related to the allegations that the company uses so-called “backdoors” to spy on network communications performed by other countries. However, he also references the allegations that Huawei steals trade secrets in order to bolster its own brand.

On the latter charge, Suffolk pointed out that, if these allegations were true, Huawei’s competitors would be growing at a significant rate. He posits that if there are lucrative trade secrets Huawei has stolen from competitors, then these other companies should be growing as much as Huawei has.

Before the Huawei ban began, the company’s smartphone division was poised to overtake Samsung and become the biggest smartphone manufacturer in the world. Even now, the company still sits comfortably in second place, above even the likes of Apple.

The faith of our customers — and you can see this in the results over the past 30 years — gives an indication of what our customers think of those allegations,” Suffolk said.

    LOL. Huawei is basically telling the US government to put up or shut up. My bet is that the US will publish nothing because: 1.)They have nothing to publish or 2.) Any information they publish will expose the illegal method in which the US government obtained the information.

    Germany, however, did publish something in 2014 called “Der NSA-Komplex” by Marcel Rosenbach and Holger Stark (ISBN-13: 978-3421046581). Only problem for the US is that what was published shows exactly the opposite of what the US claims. Based on documentation released by Edward Snowden, it was revealed that it was actually the NSA who had broken into Huawei as early as 2007 in attempt to steal source code and covertly implant backdoors into Huawei products. Google “Shotgiant” or the NY Times article “N.S.A. Breached Chinese Servers Seen as Security Threat” for more info.

      Obviously the NSA failed to mess with Huawei’s source code so they consider Huawei to be a threat. If any countries, including American themselves, use Huawei, the NSA would be deemed obsolete as it would be a handicapped organization. With the source code more sophisticated than any American programmers can understand, they are really blind. To a recently blind person, the world around them is very scary. A blind NSA could explain American excessive paranoia, especially when they are so comfortable peeking and messing with other people. They would be imagining that those people they ruined could now get back at them, somehow. It would be just like paranoia toward the Chinese after 150 years of bullying. Denying the controling access would be just like taking a gadget from a very spoiled rich brat who got used to get everything he wants. His world would be ended suddenly. He would get PTSD for sure.
