Huawei has denied the report of WSJ, saying that the US official is unable to provide any concrete evidence mentioned in the report about the so-called “backdoors”.
“The Wall Street Journal is clearly aware that the US government can’t provide any evidence to support their allegations, and yet it still chose to repeat the lies being spread by these US officials. This reflects The Wall Street Journal’s bias against Huawei and undermines its credibility,” said Huawei.
Huawei said it’s impossible to access customer networks without their authorization and visibility would be impossible. The company do not have the ability to bypass carriers, access control, and take data from their customers without being detected by all normal firewall or security system.
“US allegations of Huawei using lawful interception are nothing but a smokescreen – they don’t adhere to any form of accepted logic in the cybersecurity domain,” said Huawei.
“We are very indignant that the US government has spared no efforts to stigmatize Huawei by using cybersecurity issues. If the US does discover Huawei’s violations, we again solemnly request the US to disclose specific evidence instead of using the media to spread rumors.” the company added.
On the other hand, a report by the Washington Post revealed this week how the CIA used an encryption firm to spy on other countries for decades. However, the U.S. keeps alleging Huawei of being a security threat, which is not based on doubts and not evidence.
