ABSTRACT
China may embark on a full-scale program to assess the trustworthiness of software-intensive electronic products used by consumers and businesses. The proposed program goes well beyond attempts in other countries to accredit applications and systems. This article raises the questions: Is the program overly ambitious? Will the program actually improve our ability to introduce trusted products into the marketplace?
