China has started government-wide deployment of a home grown Secure OS called Kylin ” A mythical Creature in the Chinese history, that reflects Serenity” . The FreeBSD Based OS was developed back in 2002 by China’s University of Science and Technology for National Defense usage, it was approved by a panel of experts from the state 863 Hi-tech Research and Development Program office.

In a recent Article in Washington Times , the paper quoted an official stating that such a roll out makes the current US Offensive cyber capabilities ineffective!.

“We are in the early stages of a cyber arms race and need to respond
accordingly,” said Kevin G. Coleman, a private security specialist who
advises the government on cybersecurity. He discussed Kylin during a
hearing of the U.S. China Economic and Security Review Commission on
April 30.”

“This action also made our offensive cybercapabilities ineffective
against them, given the cyberweapons were designed to be used against
Linux, UNIX and Windows,” he said.
