US House Passes Bill Banning Gov Use of Dahua and Hikvision

Author: John Honovich, Published on May 24, 2018

Today, the US House of Representatives passed H.R. 5515, a bill that includes a ban on the US government's use of Dahua and Hikvision. This follows growing US awareness that Hikvision is owned and controlled by the Chinese government plus last year's disclosure of Dahua's backdoor, Hikvision's backdoor and Dahua device's global hacking attacks.


The minimal impact is increased recognition and publicity of Chinese video surveillance manufacturer risks. If this becomes law in the next few months, the direct impact to Dahua and Hikvision would be moderate, as they primarily supply SMB based on low cost. However, Hikvision specifications have been increasing inside the US government (e.g., 1, 2, 3). Moreover, both Dahua and Hikvision are increasing their emphasis on enterprise and government sales with thermal cameras and AI.
