China Uses its Own Encryption Standards for Wireless Networks

Here is a report from Seattlepi entitled “China pushes network encryption standards” It said “China has ordered equipment makers to use the country’s own encryption standards for wireless networks, ensuring stronger government control and giving domestic manufacturers a slight respite from some foreign competition.

The new rules, which took effect Monday, apply to manufacturers at home and overseas. They cover the import and sale of all equipment used in wireless networks, the so-called Wi-Fi services increasingly used to provide Internet connections in public spaces such as hotels, cafes and airports.
