I assume that an Indian intelligence agency would
be more concerned about things like hidden remote
control or data collection services on the systems.
Exactly. The Chinese version of Cisco's CALEA code with different access
methods would be pretty threatening in general. Not saying that they
have one, did one, or will... but its a security risk even before you
show intent on the part of Huawei. Maybe the Indian gov't is going to
request the source to Huawei's code? I remember Germany or Russia
requesting it of Microsoft for Windows and Microsoft complied.
