India Should Indigenise Military Equipment to Stay Ahead in Cyber Warfare, Says Hooda


Not just data localisation, India should have its own operating systems, software, networking equipment and cryptographic algorithms to secure itself from present-day threats of cyber warfare, said Lt. General (retired) Deependra Singh Hooda, the architect of the 2016 surgical strikes on terror camps across Line of Control.

General Hooda, who presented India’s National Security Strategy document to the Congress, said, “In India, we seem oblivious to the vulnerabilities that exist in our critical networks due to foreign hardware and software. This needs to be quickly reversed.

The government should promote and support Indian companies through funding assistance and give them preference in the purchase of equipment for critical infrastructure.” Read More
