- China clamps down on holes in ‘Great Firewall’
By Joe McDonald - Friday Jul 21, 2017
BEIJING — As part of a crackdown on Web surfers who evade censorship, China is tightening control over foreign companies’ Internet use — a move that some worry might disrupt their operations or jeopardize trade secrets.In a letter to corporate customers, the biggest Chinese Internet service provider says virtual private networks, which create encrypted links between computers and can be used to see sites blocked by Beijing’s Web filters, will be permitted only to connect to a company’s headquarters abroad.The letter from state-owned China Telecom Ltd. says VPN users are barred from linking to other sites outside China, a change that might block access to news, social media or business services that are obscured by its “Great Firewall.”Authorities have tried to reassure companies they won’t be affected, but if the rules in the China Telecom letter are enforced, they could hamper activity ranging from gathering information for business deals to employees working on business trips.The crackdown reflects President Xi Jinping’s vision of “Internet sovereignty,” or Beijing’s absolute right to control what people can do and see online.Control over information is especially sensitive ahead of a party congress late this year at which Xi is due to be appointed to a second five-year term as leader.Beijing has repeatedly pressured foreign companies to hand over technology, encryption know-how and other trade secrets in exchange for access to its huge and growing market.In a survey by the American Chamber of Commerce in China last year, 79 percent of companies that responded said Web filters hurt them by blocking access to information and business tools.President Trump said in April he would temporarily set aside disputes with Beijing over market barriers and currency while the two sides cooperated over North Korea’s nuclear program.A Western diplomat who asked not to be identified further due to the sensitivity of the issue said companies have told his government they worry the controls might lead to weaker data security and trade secrets being leaked to Chinese competitors.China Telecom and the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, which announced the January crackdown, did not respond to requests for information about the letter.[...] companies increasingly limit VPN access to employees such as media managers “with a critical business need” to see a banned website, according to Jake Parker, vice president of China operations for the U.S.-China Business Council.
