Bai Yi, director of China National Laboratory of Computer Network and
Information Security, said on June 5 that China should develop its own
information industry on the one hand and stipulate strict regulations
on management and prevention on the other in order to strengthen the
management of information security.
He noted that as some key technologies for the Chinese computers are
imported, and so in many aspects we have to rely on other countries
and the United State, a superpower in information, is trying to
monopolize the information industry in the world. In such a serious
situation as we are confronting, it's necessary for China to adopt the
dual tactics at the same time.
The expert says, China should develop its own information industry to
gradually take the place of imported products with homemade ones, such
as the operating system, router and chip. He also reminded that this
can be carried out step by step as time goes on for it takes time for
domestic products to rise in the competition and replace the imported
products, and surely this can't be accomplished at a go.
Moreover, before the Chinese information industry is capable to
compete that of developed countries, China should lay stresses on
countermeasures of rules and regulations and the network. security as
well. So far, China has done quite a lot to tighten regulations, offer
technological support to ensure the network and information security.
He also indicated that the management is the most serious hidden
trouble for the information security. Taking the hacker battle online
between China and the US of last month for example, though only simple
methods were resorted to by the US hackers, that could be fully warded
off with the present technology, yet quite a few Chinese webs were
still attacked. It is the neglect in management to blame.
