Report reveals how CIA has been stealing data of over 120 countries for decades, yet they blames Huawei
Wow, there’s big news just came out regarding the US intelligence agency – CIA and how it was working discreetly to spy on other countries for a long time. While the U.S. alleges Huawei for such crimes.
A report from Washington Post reveals how the CIA used an encryption company – Crypto AG based in Switzerland, to spy on other countries for decades and even robbed its own allies’ secret data such as information regarding spies, soldiers and diplomats secret.
Crypto Ag, got famous with an official contract with U.S. troops to build code-making machines during World War 2 and later became the dominant maker of encryption devices highly trusted by many customers.
According to the source, this encryption firm sold equipment to over 120 countries including Iran, military juntas in Latin America, Indian, Pakistan, and the Vatican.
But none of these customers knew that the Crypto AG was secretly owned by the CIA in a “highly classified partnership” with West German intelligence.
How do they break secret codes of other countries?
Well, these spy agencies customized/installing backdoor in the company’s devices so they could easily break the codes that countries used to send encrypted messages and unfold them for their own use.
This classified information was obtained jointly by Washington Post and ZDF, a German public broadcaster.
Furthermore, the information describes how the U.S. and its allies exploited other nation’s gullibility for years and taking their money while stealing their secret data.
This whole data-stealing operation known first by the code name “Thesaurus” and later “Rubicon”.
“It was the intelligence coup of the century,” the CIA report concludes. “Foreign governments were paying good money to the U.S. and West Germany for the privilege of having their most secret communications read by at least two (and possibly as many as five or six) foreign countries.”
From 1970, the CIA and National Security Agency (NSA), controlled nearly every aspect of Crypto’s operations along with their German partners over new plans, designing its technology, sabotaging its algorithms and directing its sales targets.
The setup shows how the secret agency got a hold of precious data of almost every country around the globe for ages and sold it for its good.
False allegation on Huawei:
The U.S. has been continuously blaming Huawei for stealing customers’ data with its network equipment and banned the company from doing business with US companies.
Moreover, the US administration is also forcing its allies to drop the Chinese tech giant from 5G development projects but Huawei has repeatedly denied these allegations saying that these based on fictions and not based on evidence.
UFIDA reacts to Huawei MetaERP management system
Last week, Huawei Founder, Ren Zhengfei revealed that Huawei has developed its own MetaERP management system. On this, a leading Chinese EPR company, UFIDA reacted to Huawei MetaERP.
UFIDA said that the market has over-interpreted the MetaERP from Huawei. From an industry perspective, it will take at least three to five years for ERP products to mature.
From the perspective of the current competitive landscape, Huawei’s own products are mostly used internally by the company. Whether they can be replicated and promoted in batches in the future has a lot to do with it. There could be some factors that may affect the entire scenario.
UFIDA said that Huawei’s self-developed ERP has little impact because ERP is not a simple tool software. However, it involves a whole set of links such as the design process, experience extraction, and implementation delivery.
Whether it is a Chinese or foreign ERP company, it takes decades of development to form a certain market size. Huawei is not the first company in China to enter ERP, which fully demonstrates the market value of ERP.
Previously, Ren Zhengfei revealed in his speech that in April this year, Huawei’s MetaERP will take an oath, completely using its own operating system, database, compiler, and language to make its own management system MetaERP software.
MetaERP has also experienced the actual application test of various departments of the company around the world and passed the annual settlement test of the company’s general ledger use.
Many design tools are also released to the public on Huawei Cloud, gradually overcoming the embarrassment of supply interruption.
We don’t know much about UFIDA’s viewports but developing a management tool that’s helpful to Huawei itself is an important task to deliver. As the company doesn’t need to rely on other companies to give this service and save money. Huawei has not announced the commercial use of such software for third-party businesses.
Don’t worry guys, Huawei is not taking your work.
