Open Source Center Views China’s Huawei Technologies

10.13.11 | 1 min read | Text by Steven Aftergood

The DNI Open Source Center produced a report this month profiling Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd., China’s largest telecommunications company.  See “Huawei Annual Report Details Directors, Supervisory Board for First Time,” October 5, 2011.

The report is based primarily on Huawei’s own website, which released new details earlier this year about the company’s management team.  “The release of this information may be intended to counter media accusations that the company lacks transparency,” the OSC said.

The OSC profile of Huawei was reported in “Chinese Telecom Firm Tied to Spy Ministry” by Bill Gertz, Washington Times, October 11.

The Open Source Center is a component of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence and is managed by the Central Intelligence Agency.  Although the Huawei report is unclassified and derived exclusively from public sources, the CIA does not permit public access to this report or similar OSC products on an authorized basis.
