If Huawei, ZTE and Kaspersky are suspected of helping China and Russia spy on US government computer systems, they shouldn’t be allowed near sensitive academic research projects.
That’s the argument made by three Republican lawmakers who introduced a bill Tuesday that would bar researchers who work on many federally funded projects from using any technology from those companies – or from any other companies with close ties to the Russian or Chinese governments.
