Ensuring the integrity of components in critical infrastructure supply chains has never been more important.  While much attention has been focused on cyber threats posed by outside hackers, the insidious risk posed by compromised components and software in computer-controlled systems is just as great.  This is especially true in the telecommunications supply chain, as communications equipment forms an integral part of so many other critical systems.  The threat is real; the answers are very difficult.
