They stole Cisco's source code and denied it, so how can you believe them on this issue. http://blogs.cisco.com/news/huawei-and-ciscos-source-code-correcting-the-record/

If you afraid Huwei's product performance is better than Cisco and lower price. Pls improve your product. Or you give any proof to testify your opinion and go court. Did Cisco can beat huawei in any market ? I'm dispoint about Cisco.

What comment would you have expected from the CEO? Yes we are loyal to China our motherland, home of our extended families. Yes of course we put in back doors, just like all the other U.S. companies. Not likely. Anyone could have predicted his response.

Hackers seem very good at finding ways to compromise the security and privacy features of electronic devices. It seems just a matter of time before these devices - and their competitors - are compromised. With mainstream products we have a chance of hearing about the flaws and addressing them; the more obscure items may be compromised and we'll never know it.

Incidentally I came across this paper today from cambridge university. Yes backdoors in silicon devices can exist and could be real threat in future. http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/~sps32/ches2012-backdoor.pdf

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
