Beijing, Chinese Internet of Things modules in critical national infrastructure and key industries can enable espionage, allowing detailed surveillance in smart cities and allowing bad actors to subvert systems, making it key. According to Portal Plus, this is a threat to the world.
The Internet of Things describes a network of physical objects, nodes, that are embedded with software, sensors, and other technologies for the purpose of connecting and exchanging data with other devices and systems over the Internet.
According to Portal Plus, Chinese intelligence services have been able to create an accurate picture of how many spare parts or weapon systems have been transported and where they have been moved to obtain information about US-made weapons.
is possible. Data harvested by IoT modules embedded in supply chains and logistics systems. China can collect data from a wide range of sources, including government systems to trace their identities, habits, contacts, and individuals’ interactions with IoT devices, such as car computers, home appliances or wearable devices, through which it can use artificial intelligence. .
Which can make it easy to target finance prominent government officials or dissidents. British diplomat Charles Patron said countries should take steps to ban Chinese IoT modules from their supply chains as soon as possible and conduct full audits of where these modules are embedded in government assets and services and critical national infrastructure.
He said that A ban on buying new Chinese IoT modules should be imposed by the end of this year and a deadline to replace existing products by the end of 2025 should be issued, Portal Plus reported.
Asian Light International recently reported that China is arming you with smart bulbs, fridges, cars and credit cards with microchips. In particular, the threat appears to revolve around four areas: national security, economic prosperity, privacy, and values and human rights. Three Chinese companies – Quectel, Fibocom and China Mobile – already have 54 percent of the devices and 75 percent of the connectivity in the global market. Customers of the three Chinese companies include computing companies Dell, Lenovo, HP and Intel, car maker Tesla and card payment firm SumUp.
Like all Chinese companies, they must hand over data to the Chinese government if ordered to, which means the Chinese Communist Party can gain access to as many devices as it wants, Shin Light International reported, adding that devices with the modules include: laptops computer; voice controlled smart speaker; smart watches; smart energy meters; fridges, light bulbs and other appliances that can be controlled by the app;
body-worn police cameras; doorbell cameras and security cameras; Asian Lite International reported that bank card payment machines, cars and even hot tubs. The modules collect data and then transmit it through the 5y network, allowing China to monitor the movement of intelligence targets including people, weapons and supplies, and to use equipment for industrial espionage, many of which are already in use in the UK.SS1MS
