    Backdoors are once again thrust into the forefront with this week’s breaking news that the NSA allegedly hacked Chinese router company Huawei’s servers. Back in October 2012 the House Intelligence Committee accused Huawei, which claims to interconnect one third of the Internet, of embedding backdoors into routers and “posing a national security threat.” And thanks to another Edward Snowden bombshell, we now know that the NSA took their own measures to ensure perpetual access to Huawei routers.

    Government espionage is nothing new. Although both sides in the example above dismiss the claims, these recent developments confirm that the location of the battlefield is forever changed. Instead of bullets and bombs, the new intelligence war is being fought with almost imperceptible bursts of electricity. Reminds me of the classic AC/DC song “Dirty Deeds Done Dirty Cheap,” where they poetically proclaim that, “For a fee I’m happy to be your backdoor man.”
