Red flags on Huawei's NBN ban

At the centre of NBN Co's decision to block China's Huawei from tenders is the concern of 'backdoor' infrastructure access. Does this mean there's an issue with NBN Co's ability to closely monitor its suppliers?

Former foreign minister Alexander Downer looks a little uncomfortable in a picture snapped of him with his fellow Australian-based board members of Chinese technology giant Huawei.

That picture is now getting a lot more attention following news NBN Co has effectively banned Huawei from tendering for lucrative national broadband network contracts on cyber security advice from ASIO.
