Huawei Internet Cable Seen As New Risk To Oz

Huawei has revealed a plan to build a massive undersea Internet cable stretching from South America to China with a possible diversion to Sydney.

Unnamed experts are warning that the plan could be an espionage risk, according to an Australian newspaper report.

It notes that Australia has spent nearly $137 million to lock Huawei out of a major Pacific undersea cable project linking Sydney, the Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea because of national security fears.

The head of the International Cyber Policy Centre at the Australian Strategic Policy Institute, Fergus Hanson, said it was possible Australian Internet traffic could be viewed through the cables.
