These technology companies always do, periodically or whenever they got a new product. They call up a bunch of ethical hackers and offer them their tech to hard crack it, thus, finding loopholes and rectifying in next versions.
Such types of bug bounty programs actually help companies to develop their product to maximize resistance against hacks, before launching commercially to the public. And here’s Huawei, redefining its integrity for all governments out there.
The Secret Hackers Meeting hosted by Huawei
From Techcrunch, it’s learned that the company is planning a meeting later this month (November 16) in Munich, Germany. The meeting is a callup for the industry’s best security researchers to surface vulnerabilities in their past and future products, entitling them to rewards if they found any.
Further, the company will be testing its in-house developed operating software, HarmonyOS. This would help the company to patch up any vulnerabilities and stand rigid in front of world governments.
Security and Trade Issues
The actual heat is first caused by US disbelieving Huawei in terms of technology. Observing Huawei’s supreme growth in 5G services, US doubts its integrity and marks it as a national threat. The US has deeply convinced that Huawei could be used as a spying machine against them by China, provided how deeply the company and the Chinese government are related. Trade tensions between China and the US have further fueled this heat, forcing the Chinese tech giant to cut off ties with US companies.
Huawei is the number two smartphone maker in the world, just behind Samsung. The heat it has been facing from US-led the company to blacklist and restrict it from trading with US companies. This made Huawei develop its own operating system, HarmonyOS, reliving itself from the clutches of Google’s Android. Though developed, Huawei admits that’s HarmonyOS couldn’t be a direct replacement to Android, rather used for industrial purposes.
