Re: Huawei Cyber Security Evaluation Centre (HCSEC)
I wonder why. They are obviously not concerned with protecting Chinese state secrets here.
Because, O Brain of Britain, finding a backdoor or, more likely, a vulnerability in a piece of Huawei kit which may also exist in sensitive networks in the UK would be a matter of UK national security. It also facilitates discussions with the spooks about the possible implications of bugs and vulnerabilities in such equipment.
And, oddly, it probably reassures the Chinese that the UK is taking this seriously.
