The 5G Security Conference in Prague kicked off on Thursday, May 2 in the capital of the Czech Republic, bringing together representatives from 32 countries to discuss security issues related to the new telecommunications technology.

Although the title and stated purpose of the conference did not single out any particular nation or company, many have recognized the conference as a U.S.-led effort to build a coalition to confront the threat of Chinese espionage via telecom products and services, particularly those of the Huawei corporation.

The 5G Security Conference was officially organized by Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babiš, who invited 150 experts from across the world to discuss 5G technology, its applications and cyber security issues at the forum. Babiš wants to build an international consensus on the issue of 5G.

Radio Praha reports that the Prime Minister has taken seriously the warnings of the National Cyber and Information Security Agency regarding security threats posed by Huawei technologies.

In order to rebuild its damaged reputation after news broke late last year that spy chips had been allegedly planted in its motherboards, Supermicro is planning on shifting production of its motherboards from China to a factory in northern Taiwan.

In October, Bloomberg reported that tiny rice-sized chips had been implanted on Supermicro server motherboards enabling the Chinese government to spy on servers operated by Apple, Amazon Web Services, and nearly 30 other companies. The chips were allegedly designed to enable a People's Liberation Army unit specializing in hardware attacks to steal data from U.S. companies without being detected.
