Do as we say, not as we do: The U.S. has told China that forcing U.S.

tech firms to install backdoors into their products under a draft law is '

going too far.' This, as U.S. spies insist Apple and Google do the same.



Beijing Calls Out Obama on 'Backdoor' Hypocrisy (Xinhua, China)


As we have been reporting, China has decided to take a page out of the NSA playbook, but rather than doing so secretly, it is working on a counterterrorism law that would demand that all manufacturers of electronics or software submit to the authorities all source code and encryption keys for their products if they wish to continue operating in the vast China market. A few days ago, President Obama was quoted as saying that the law goes too far, and that it will have to be changed if China wants to continue doing business with the United States. According to this news item from the state-run Xinhua News Agency, Beijing's is anything but receptive to Obama's guidance.


March 5, 2015


People's Republic of China - Xinhua - Original Article (English)

BEIJING: China on Wednesday justified the drafting of its first counterterrorism law, saying that the section concerning Internet technology firms doing business in the country is in line with laws and international practice.


The latest comment came two days after U.S. President Barack Obama voiced concerns that an article of the draft law requires technology firms operating in China to hand over encryption keys - the pass codes that protect data.


[Editor's Note: President Obama told Reuters: "We have made it very clear to them that this is something they are going to have to change if they are to do business with the United States."]


Beijing has slammed Obama's accusation, saying that such lawmaking is an internal affair of China.


Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said implementing the nation's first counterterrorism law is an "absolutely necessary" requirement for combating terrorism and information leaks.


"On the information security issue, There is a media revelation about a certain country embedding spying software in the computer systems of another country's SIM card maker. That is only one of the recently disclosed cases. All countries are paying close attention to this and taking measures to safeguard their own information security, an act that is beyond any reproach.


"I'd like to point out that the Chinese side firmly opposes cyber surveillance using information technology advantages or exploiting the convenience of information technology products, and consistently supports and promotes the formulation of international rules for cyberspace under the framework of the United Nations. Given the frequent incidents in the cyberspace, it is especially important to set up a uniform code of conduct for all parties. Back to September 2011, together with relevant countries, China submitted a draft proposal of the International Code of Conduct for Information Security to the U.N. General Assembly. In a bid to maintain the peace and stability of cyberspace, China submitted an updated version this January with more emphasis on fair governance of the Internet and building confidence measures in cyberspace based on the principles of respecting the sovereignty of other countries, not interfering in the domestic affairs of others and peacefully resolving disputes. We hope the U.S. side contributes constructively to relevant discussions to forge an international consensus as soon as possible and create a cyberspace that is peaceful, secure, open and cooperative."


She was responding to President Obama's comments that China should review the law to ensure smooth economic ties with the United States.

China is likely to ask domestic and foreign information technology vendors to hand over critical information, such as encryption keys, passcodes and software source codes that the law references.


U.S. companies, including IBM, Oracle and Microsoft, have major concerns about submitting such data to China's government. They cite the data's significant business value and say such a move would damage the credibility of their companies in the eyes of some customers in the United States.


The Obama Administration fears that China's tightening grip on information security will harm the interests of the U.S. technology vendors that dominate China's high-end IT market.


The three companies were not available for comment on Tuesday, but China Daily has learned that IBM and Microsoft have expressed a willingness to work with the government on security issues.


According to industry consultancy IDC, by 2018 China will contribute more than 10 percent of global spending on IT - despite a slowing economy.


Kitty Fok, manager of IDC China, said that following the Edward Snowden case in 2013, a higher degree of data security awareness among political leaders and state-owned enterprises has greatly boosted the use of local providers.


Snowden, a former U.S. National Security Agency subcontractor, made headlines when he leaked top secret information about the agency's surveillance activities.


"The market share of foreign IT providers is set to drop because China is keen to have the ability to fully control and influence every IT product running in strategically important industries such as banking and energy," Fok said.


Fu Ying, spokesperson for the Third Session of the 12th National People's Congress told a press conference that Article 19 of the draft counterterrorism law, which is still under heated discussion, will not affect the legal interests of Internet businesses in China. She said that the measure will only be used to prevent and investigate terrorist activities and that only China's public security and national security organs can use such information.

Fu said that officials involved must follow strict procedures of approval before having access to such data. She added that in Western countries like the United States and Britain, it is common to ask technology firms to disclose their encryption methods. Fu said the fact that the U.S. government is following China's lawmaking process is a form of progress, but that Washington endeavor to better understand what's really going on.


"We advocate dialogue and cooperation on the basis of mutual respect in regard to cyberspace," she said. "There should be no 'double standards' in establishing universal Internet regulation rules."

The spokeswoman also criticized U.S. double standards in its policy toward Chinese companies. "The U.S. government imposes many restrictions on Chinese companies in that country, but U.S. companies here  are developing well, growing like tall trees," she said.


"We hope that foreign companies in China continue to support and participate in China's reforms," she added.


Western countries, including the United States, have accused Chinese technology firms, such as ZTE and Huawei, of posing a national security threat to them. China's annual NPC session is scheduled to open Thursday, when nearly 3,000 national lawmakers will gather in Beijing.
