Will China's new encryption laws affect electronics exported to the USA?
posted 3 years ago
China intends to adopt a new encryption law that will require the Chinese government "to seize all communications, data, and other information stored in electronic form that belong to foreign companies." The aforementioned provision mentions that VPNs will no longer be private if even allowed, and even private servers shall be prohibited. My question is how this new law will affect devices produced in China and exported to the US. For example, will OnePlus devices receive an OTA update that will contain a backdoor? What about Oppo, Lenovo, Huawei, and others?
