The Chinese legislature released a Draft Anti-Terrorism Law, which requires telecommunication operators and Internet service providers to build into their networks “technical ports” and to inform the authorities of their encryption schemes. The draft law does not define “technical ports,” but it appears to mean ports that would provide Chinese authorities with access to the networks. The draft law also requires business operators that provide telecommunication and Internet services within China to retain their relevant facilities and the data of Chinese users in China. According to the draft law, failure to comply with the requirements may result in a fine up to RMB500,000 (approximately US$80,000) on the company and RMB100,000 (approximately US$16,000) on responsible individuals. In severe circumstances, those individuals may be detained for five to fifteen days.
