U.S. Panel Warns China Tech Prowess Threatens U.S. Security

Nov 14 , 2018

WASHINGTON—A commission of security and economic experts convened by Congress warned that China’s technology-manufacturing strength threatens U.S. national security and advised U.S. government agencies to be mindful of Chinese attempts to compromise government systems.

In a new report, the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission found Chinese dominance of networking-equipment manufacturing threatens the security of U.S. fifth-generation, or 5G, wireless infrastructure. The panel cited Chinese telecommunications giants Huawei Technologies Co. and ZTECorp. in particular.

In addition, China’s position as the world’s largest manufacturer of internet-connected household devices creates “numerous points of vulnerability for intelligence collection, cyberattacks, industrial control, or censorship,” said the panel, which includes appointees by Senate and House leaders of both parties.
