The best U.S. diplomat to get cybersecurity policy on Wednesday commended Germany’s draft security standards for second generation cellular systems, which he said might effectively shut outside China’s Huawei.
The criteria published last month were a”positive step,” said Rob Strayer, who is directing the U.S. campaign to persuade its allies to stop employing the Chinese tech giant’s community equipment.
The German standards, which are subject to comments from the industry, call for cell providers to utilize”trustworthy” telecom equipment providers that comply with national security regulations covering communications secrecy and data protection.
The U.S. has been lobbying European allies to prohibit Huawei from fresh 5G networks over concerns China’s communist leaders may induce the company to use its own equipment for cyberespionage. Huawei, the planet’s biggest manufacturer of telecom network equipment, has always denied the U.S. allegations.
“At this point we are searching for governments to adopt safety standards like we’re seeing in Germany,” Strayer told reporters on a conference phone.
The German requirements have been somewhat incompatible with China’s federal intelligence legislation, which compels organizations to collaborate with intelligence orders, therefore”it’s hard to realize how Chinese technologies could satisfy that standard,” Strayer said.
The U.S. is worried that intelligence sharing or alternative types of cooperation with its allies might be hurt if these countries utilize unsecure gear from untrusted countries in their 5G networks, Strayer stated.
The conflict above Huawei everywhere prepare to deploy 5G networks and has intensified in recent months, beginning with the market of frequencies this season.
