#Huawei Planned Covertly to Sell Smartphones in #US disguised as non-Huawei devices - Chinese telecom sought to circumvent U.S. government ban…
US intelligence agencies learned of the plans last month and alerted senior policymakers. According to the officials, the Shenzhen, China-based company planned to ship a large number of its smartphones to Mexico where the smartphones would be re-labeled and shipped into the US.
As non-Huawei devices, there would be no prohibition on selling them in the United States. The phones, however, could be identified as Huawei devices by examining their electronic components that can be traced to the Chinese telecom.

Thread: Nearly 60% of #Huawei’s 50 5G contracts are from #Europe - Huawei said 28 of 50 commercial contracts for 5G that it signed globally are with operators in Europe - Some people never learn, money & trade above security 👎👎👎…
Huawei’s major competitors in network development, Finland’s Nokia and Sweden’s Ericsson, had secured 43 contracts and 22 contracts as of the end June, respectively. Huawei’s crosstown rival, ZTE, has publicly announced 25 commercial deals.
Europe, which has generally resisted pressure from the US to shut out Huawei, is an important market that the company could not afford to lose after a series of bans in North America and Oceania.

Is #Huawei a Security Threat? #Vietnam Isn’t Taking Any Chances - As the world splits along #US-China# fault lines, telecom companies in Vietnam appear to be quietly avoiding the Chinese tech giant in their 5G plans.…
At first glance, this fast-developing nation might seem to be a natural customer for Huawei. Its economy is entwined with China’s, and Beijing has embraced the country’s Communist Party leaders in Hanoi as ideological brethren.
Yet Vietnam’s leading mobile carriers appear to be keeping Huawei out of their 5G plans, even if the government’s fear of incensing Beijing most likely prevents them from saying so.

Thread: Two-thirds of #Canadians reject closer ties to #China and want #Huawei banned from 5G networks, poll says - People’s perceptions of China have ‘deteriorated markedly’, poll says…
The poll, conducted from July 6 to 9 by Research Co, also found increasing support for Canada’s handling of the case of Meng Wanzhou, the Huawei executive whose arrest in December at Vancouver’s airport sent Sino-Canadian relations plummeting.
Mario Canseco, president of Research Co, said Canadian perceptions of China had “deteriorated markedly over the past five months” and that the speed of deterioration “was really surprising”.

The UK's Intelligence and Security Committee has published what I think is easily the best summary and explanation of the increasingly convoluted British debate around #Huawei and 5G.

If you want to understand what is going on, read this
Main takeaway from the ISC statement is conclusion that Britain's delayed and so far yet-to-materialise final decision on Huawei is damaging international relations. Urges next PM to make a decision "as a matter of urgency"
It then clearly lays out @NCSC case that network security not about a vendor's country of origin and UK needs to be able to defend against attacks "from any quarter." Security officials say supplier diversity best way to achieve this.

Secondly, Britain and the US are both members of the Five Eyes security alliance. Trump's administration would have shared their intel on #Huawei with the UK.

It is very telling that Britain did not buy in to Trump's anti-Huawei narrative that it poses a #security risk.

Trump's position was already undermined when he had said that @Huawei could be part of a trade deal with #China - apparently ignoring the "fact" that it is a #security risk. If it was such a risk, it would never be allowed to trade in the US. 3/8

Excellent report on the technical vulnerabilities found in #Huawei’s devices, code, and #5G systems. A superb and highly technical report, but the main finding? Multiple backdoors were found. Thread 👇🏻…
“Finite State’s conducted comprehensive, unbiased analysis of the security properties of (Huawei) devices. Our automated system analyzed more than 1.5 million files embedded in 9,936 firmware images supporting 558 different products within its enterprise networking product lines”
“The results of the analysis show that Huawei devices quantitatively pose a high risk to their users. In virtually all categories we studied, we found Huawei devices to be less secure than comparable devices from other vendors.”

Should #India allow #Huawei a role in building the country’s #5G network? @AKanisetti and I have tried to provide a roadmap for the government in our new discussion document.…
We argue that India’s decision on Huawei in the context of 5G has strategic implications and should not be looked at only from the prism of economic benefits.
India needs to think about Huawei’s checkered history and linkages with the #Chinese Party-state, the potential of and threats from 5G and the country's position in the world of tech geopolitics.

« #Huawei's 'HongMeng' operating system to gradually replace Android »

As I explained yesterday, if you don’t have access to the GApps and the Play Services, your only choice is to create another OS.…
#Huawei was ready for the ban and started to work on their OS since 2012. But, for the reasons I said yesterday, they also know that stay on #Android is better for the business.
After all these years, they didn’t release their OS for this exact reason.

So no, the ban is not a good news for them at short term. On the long term they might benefit from it but nobody is really able to say it.

Let's do a short contrarian #Thread on #Huawei and #Google

There's a substantial outrage right now around Google's announcement that Huawei will be excluded from the Android ecosystem. (They're essentially complying with a Trump administration directive, but park that.)
What is not being highlighted is the fact that Google is excluded from the biggest ecosystem of all – the #China market. All of the internet in mainland China is subject to Beijing's control – it's referred to as "The Great Firewall of China".
So a lot of the Google ecosystem which I use every day – search, Gmail, Google Drive, Google Docs, Google Maps – is not available in mainland China. Last time I was in Beijing late 2017, I found myself deaf, mute, blind as a result.

Google acting as a wing of the U.S. gov't is pulling Huawei’s Android license. Huawei will lose Android updates, Google Play Store access in order to discourage Chinese government spying on users while monopolizing
US government spying on users.…
Huawei will have to create own OS to continue updates which the Chinese government is already developing. Meaning they will have even larger control over devices, apps, and the total ability to spy on millions of users that will not stop using their products because why?
Needless to say, anybody working for @Google , @GooglePlay , or has ever worked for them or contractors directly associated to them, should 100% not go to China right now unless they really want to get State fucked and guillotined.

There is a misunderstand in the #Huawei story.

The main issue is to lose the right to preinstall the GMS which contain the GApps and the Play Services
1) People buy an Android phone to use the Google Apps. Not having these apps preinstalled is an issue. Maybe you are a techy but the average user will not install all the Google apps on the PlayStore. He want all the apps preinstalled.
2) The Android Open Source Project (AOSP) is SUPER MEGA GIGA dependent to the Google apps… and this is on purpose.

Did you use a vanilla version of the AOSP? I do and it sucks.
