  • New 5G networks. How vulnerable ?

    From what I understand the new 5G networks are supposed to be the best thing since sliced bread. Faster by a quantum leap than existing networks.

    With that speed comes a possible increase in vulnerability.

    From what I understand the U.S. government has banned Huawei from putting their equipment in U.S. networks. Are we still vulnerable if foreign countries use their equipment? Will some of the Huawei's equipment find its way into our networks?

    So long as Huawei has access to the chips, they will be able to compromise any equipment that uses those chips.

    Here is an example of how thoroughly the technology can be compromised:

    Basically, anything the USA shares with a country that is compromised will be seen and read by the PRC.

        5G isn't really that impressive in reality, granted it has only just rolled out in certain cities but relying on millimetre wave the signal strength can be blocked but just anything and it has a limited range.

          Excellent point, HH.
          Some corporations have such a completely corrupted corporate culture that the risk premium of allowing them access is far too great to allow them access. While Huawei was not the only cause of Nortel's demise( the corporation was an internal mess) they were a leading cause , and have been deeply implicated in internal espionage.

          Not controllable- don't let them in. Ever.

            There will definitely be a good and bad impact, most of the articles state that a potential malicious attack can happen with 5G connection.
