White House Proposes Blacklist of Dahua, Hikvision Users

By: Charles Rollet, Published on Feb 04, 2020

The White House is proposing to blacklist Hikvision and Dahua users from federally-funded contracts, even if their use of this equipment is unrelated.

The new proposal, subject to public comment until March 22, uses the strongest language so far from the federal government, reflecting the Trump administration's broad interpretation of the NDAA's blacklist clause.

In this post, we examine this important development.
