Re: Interesting summary on the China Chip controversy

Of course they had to deny it ... the implication is that everything on AWS has been compromised.

Basically, when you setup this sort of access, you do it in a way that allows you to turn it on when you need access and you make it invisible when you are not using it ... so when the customer tests the system it has a clean emissions profile and it stays that way until it's turned on. After it's been running for a while and the system appears to be in use, it turns on quietly and waits for a wake up packet.
