 CHINA?S WAPI POLICY: SECURITY MEASURE OR TRADE PROTECTIONISM?
Even companies that decided to comply with WAPI were not without trepidation, as the potential remained for Chinese firms to extort technology transfers from foreign wireless companies in return for access to WAPI.
Even if China could convince the WTO that WAPI is necessary to protect one of the enumerated governmental objectives, the policy would probably still fail, as it is applied in a discriminatory manner.
This characteristic of the WAPI policy is at the heart of what National Treatment proscribes, and the exceptions do not excuse such discrimination.

 EETimes.com - Chip designers: Spell out WAPI crypto details
As proponents of the WAPI and 802.11i templates for wireless-LAN security continue to trade insults in the wake of the ISO's rejection of the Chinese WAPI standard, IC designers who have looked at both proposals say there is merit in the direction China's government wants to take WAPI.
The problem, sources said, is that WAPI has not specified the encryption algorithms to be used in implementations supported by the Chinese government and by the new WAPI Industrial Union.
While WAPI can use a variety of encryption methods, proposals offered to IEEE and ISO to date suggest that implementations accepted by the Chinese government and the WAPI Industrial Union will not be based on common public-key or private-key encryption algorithms, but instead will use algorithms that the Chinese government has yet to disclose.

WAPI has serious technologoical advantages such as public key encryption, better security, etc. China has declared WAPI and not Wi-Fi as the wireless standard in China.
But officially, the world will not see the WAPI spec until after the Chinese have forced their better standard upon the world.
Whether China mandates WAPI for home market or not, they aren't going to get it forced upon the rest of the world.

 Wi-Fi Networking News: WAPI Unwrapped
EE Times provides more detail on the history and future of the WAPI standard in China: The security standard has been rejected by international standards group ISO “overwhelmingly.” The Chinese backers declined to release details of the encryption algorithm, the development process was closed, and there were concerns about its integration with existing 802.11 standards.
The "allegations" that WAPI was developed by a company with close ties to the military and government is complete speculation based on no evidence whatsoever.
The idea that WAPI would be developed without scrutiny by a group with alleged ties to the military and security apparatus of the state and not have the ability for those agencies to observe traffic passing across secured WLAN networks is simply absurd.

 EETimes.com - WAPI battle exposes technology rifts with China   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-04)
The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) recently confirmed that its members have overwhelmingly rejected the Chinese technology as a global standard, deciding instead to approve 802.11i as a candidate for a more-secure wireless protocol.
In comments attached to their votes, some ISO members also expressed concerns about WAPI's incompatibility with the well-established 802.11 protocol and noted that WAPI's development process was relatively closed.
When ISO members meet this summer to review the results, WAPI backers promise they will make a last-ditch effort to appeal the decision, based on what they believe was a dirty-tricks campaign waged by IEEE after the voting process began in October.

 Wi-Fi Networking News: China Appeals WAPI Decision
The 802.11i standard was fast-tracked for consideration of approval; WAPI was rejected, in part, according to reports in March of this year, that China failed to disclosed key portions of the specification, including cryptography.
The group of 22 firms that are involved with WAPI’s future were earlier reported to include many with government and military investments and control, which is a typical occurrence in China.
My ongoing concern, shared by many Wi-Fi industry insiders, is that without WAPI being fully published for examination, there’s no way to determine the strength and integrity of the protocol—including whether backdoors are part of the standard.

The standard, called Wireless LAN Authentication and Privacy Infrastructure (WAPI), was scheduled to be adopted as a mandatory security measure in China on June 1, but Chinese officials agreed to work with international standards bodies instead after meeting with U.S. trade officials Wednesday.
Zoellick and Wu didn't comment further on the WAPI agreement, which was one of several trade agreements the two countries signed Wednesday.
China's decision on WAPI "demonstrates its commitment to leadership in the IT industry," said Intel spokesman Chuck Mulloy.

Chinese engineers want to see their own WAPI standard adopted as the official ISO successor to WiFi, but they're facing stiff competition from a rival technology, 802.11i, which is backed by Intel, among others.
While this in itself might not be front-page news, the Chinese engineers have also stepped up a war of words and now accuse (PDF) the US-based IEEE of "conspiracy," "unethical activities," and "cultural chauvinism," among other strongly-worded charges.
The anger is coming from the Broadband Wireless Internet Protocol Standard Group (BWIPS), the Chinese consortium backing WAPI, which feels like the IEEE has been out to sabotage them at the ISO in order to promote their own 802.11i technology.

 ISO rejects China's WAPI security protocol - Network World
ISO turned down the Chinese technology, called WAPI (WLAN Authentication and Privacy Infrastructure), in voting to adopt the IEEE 802.11i security specification that was developed by the IEEE, according to a member of the IEEE 802.11 Working Group who asked not to be named because of working group rules.
The proposal to adopt WAPI as a standard was defeated, with eight votes in favor of the proposal and 17 against, according to a statement released by ISO.
Cao Jun, general manager of IWNCOMM Co. Ltd., the company that developed the technology behind WAPI, reportedly said the ISO results are preliminary and do not mean that 802.11i has been confirmed as the ISO standard.

An international dispute over a wireless computing standard took a bitter turn this past week with the Chinese delegation walking out of a global meeting to discuss the technology.
The delegation's walkout from Wednesday's opening of a two-day meeting in the Czech Republic escalated an already rancorous struggle by China to gain international acceptance for its homegrown encryption technology known as WAPI.
It follows Chinese accusations that a U.S.-based standards body used underhanded tactics to prevent global approval of WAPI.

 China Forges Ahead With Homegrown WAPI Standard Instead of Wi-Fi - Sep 27, 2006 - Digital Communities
WAPI became a subject of controversy in 2003 when Chinese government selected this home-grown technology and controlled by its local companies as its national standard for WLAN and mandated that all WLAN equipment sold in China be WAPI-complaint as of December that year.
This not only meant that all 802.11-compliant equipment without WAPI couldn't be sold in China, but to be able to be WAPI-complaint, international vendors had to partner with government-selected Chinese companies for accessing the secret WAPI block cipher thereby revealing their products to IPR and business risks.
In their view it "served no justifiable or sound regulatory need and erected unnecessary trade barriers." For instance Intel realized that its popular Centrino chips were not compliant with the Chinese WAPI standards, and it had no other alternative but to withdraw from the Chinese WLAN equipment market.

 wireless.itworld.com - China's Lenovo hedges bets against WAPI
However, the Chinese standard uses a different security protocol, called WAPI (WLAN Authentication and Privacy Infrastructure), that is not compatible with the security protocol used with 802.11.
U.S. industry groups and U.S. government officials have objected to the implementation of WAPI because of a provision that requires foreign vendors to license the technology and share technology with Chinese vendors.
While Lenovo's Vela prototype is based on 802.11 technology, the company has also developed products that support WAPI, said Angela Lee, a spokeswoman for Lenovo in Hong Kong, noting that the company is one of more than 20 Chinese companies that have been granted the rights to license WAPI by the Chinese government.

The Chinese government has been trying to push for the new standard to be adopted by the ISO consortium but has been receiving very little in terms of success.
In China, WAPI is still the preferred method for encryption and data security.
If WAPI is accepted as part of an ISO standard, it would be good news for China, which is trying to gain more leg room in emerging technologies and developing new ones.

 WLAN vendors gain back-door WAPI support | The Register
From 1 June all WLAN equipment sold in China must adhere to WAPI, an alternative to Wi-Fi/802.11 that the Chinese government claims is more secure.
The trouble is, to do so they need access to the standard's specifications, and these are available only through a limited number of local partners.
But, according to unnamed Taiwanese sources cited by local news site DigiTimes, a number of chip design houses have obtained WAPI certification and are building relationships with international WLAN firms which would prefer not to work with state-authorised businesses in mainland China.
