A “nationally significant” vulnerability were discovered in Huawei equipment used in the UK’s telecommunications networks. Vulnerabilities are usually software design failures which could allow hostile actors (in particular the Chinese state when it comes to Huawei) to conduct a cyber attack. They are not necessarily intentional and can’t be seen as an indication of any hostile intent on the part of the developers themselves.

Having an independent and trusted IAM provider as well as platform in place would really support Huawei during this time as it would provide the CyberSecurity Analysts with that independent assurance on who accessed their most critical information assets (equipment, networks and systems). Independent Assurance for identity and access management is a business decision executive leadership are now making to protect themselves and provide assurance during investigations and eDiscovery cases.
