China to vet IT products and services to boost national security

Beijing will run internet security checks on all “critical” information technology products and services before allowing them to be used in systems that affect national security and the “public interest”.

The aim was to safeguard the country’s users against exposure to illegal access and control of their systems and access to their data, the State Internet Information Office (SIIO) said yesterday.

State media reported that the new measures would apply to both domestic and foreign vendors.

The measure follows the US’ indictment of five PLA officers this week for hacking into US companies for trade secrets.

It also comes after Beijing launched a powerful steering committee for internet security earlier this year, chaired by President Xi Jinping. The SIIO serves as the steering committee’s general office.

At the first meeting of the committee in February, Xi said: “There is no national security without internet security.”

The government would roll out more programmes and measures aimed at improving China’s cyberspace security, China News Service reported.

Xinhua said products and services that failed the vetting would be banned from use on the mainland.

“For a long time, governments and enterprises of a few countries have gathered sensitive information on a large scale, taking advantage of their monopoly in the market,” SIIO spokesman Jiang Jun told Xinhua.
