下記タイトルのレポートが、米議会のIntelligence Committeeから、報告されたとの事です。

Investigative Report on the U.S. National Security
Issues Posed by Chinese Telecommunications
Companies Huawei and ZTE





intelligence committee's report (以下、引用)
The House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (herein referred to
as “the Committee”) initiated this investigation in November 2011 to inquire into the counterintelligence and security threat posed by Chinese telecommunications
companies doing business in the United States. Prior to initiating the formal
investigation, the Committee performed a preliminary review of the issue, which
confirmed significant gaps in available information about the Chinese
telecommunications sector, the histories and operations of specific companies
operating in the United States, and those companies’ potential ties to the Chinese state. Most importantly, that preliminary review highlighted the potential security threat posed by Chinese telecommunications companies with potential ties to the Chinese government or military. In particular, to the extent these companies are influenced by the state, or provide Chinese intelligence services access to telecommunication networks, the opportunity exists for further economic and foreign espionage by a foreign nation-state already known to be a major perpetrator of cyber espionage.
As many other countries show through their actions, the Committee
believes the telecommunications sector plays a critical role in the safety and
security of our nation, and is thus a target of foreign intelligence services. The Committee’s formal investigation focused on Huawei and ZTE, the top two
Chinese telecommunications equipment manufacturers, as they seek to market
their equipment to U.S. telecommunications infrastructure. The Committee’s
main goal was to better understand the level of risk posed to the United States as these companies hope to expand in the United States. To evaluate the threat, the investigation involved two distinct yet connected parts: (1) a review of opensource information on the companies’ histories, operations, financial information,and potential ties to the Chinese government or Chinese Communist Party; and (2) a review of classified information, including a review of programs and efforts of the U.S. Intelligence Community (IC) to ascertain whether the IC is appropriately prioritizing and resourced for supply chain risk evaluation.3 Despite hours of interviews, extensive and repeated document requests, a review of open-source information, and an open hearing with witnesses from both companies, the Committee remains unsatisfied with the level of cooperation and candor provided by each company. Neither company was willing to provide sufficient evidence to ameliorate the Committee’s concerns. Neither company was forthcoming with detailed information about its formal relationships or regulatory interaction with Chinese authorities. Neither company provided
specific details about the precise role of each company’s Chinese Communist
Party Committee. Furthermore, neither company provided detailed information
about its operations in the United States. Huawei, in particular, failed to provide thorough information about its corporate structure, history, ownership, operations,financial arrangements, or management. Most importantly, neither company provided sufficient internal documentation or other evidence to support the limited answers they did provide to Committee investigators.
During the investigation, the Committee received information from
industry experts and current and former Huawei employees suggesting that
Huawei, in particular, may be violating United States laws. These allegations
describe a company that has not followed United States legal obligations or
international standards of business behavior. The Committee will be referring
these allegations to Executive Branch agencies for further review, including
possible investigation.

In sum, the Committee finds that the companies failed to provide evidence
that would satisfy any fair and full investigation. Although this alone does not
prove wrongdoing, it factors into the Committee’s conclusions below. Further,
this report contains a classified annex, which also adds to the Committee’s
concerns about the risk to the United States. The investigation concludes that the risks associated with Huawei’s and ZTE’s provision of equipment to U.S. critical infrastructure could undermine core U.S. national-security interests.
