Huawei has opened a cybersecurity lab in Brussels in an attempt to reassure European legislators that the Chinese giant does not pose a security risk.
Huawei's deputy chairman, Ken Hu, said that trust is one of the major challenges facing all tech firms in a global community.
"Trust needs to be based on facts. Facts must be verifiable, and verification must be based on common standards," he said.
"We believe that this is an effective model for building trust in the digital era."
The news comes as US authorities continue to lobby European governments to reject Huawei from having access to national infrastructure contracts.
The US alleges that Huawei is involved in state espionage and hacking.
Last month, secretary of state Mike Pompeo warned that the US would be unable to share information with intelligence partners that allowed Huawei into their "critical information systems".
"Where we are going to have concerns is where our security systems, our communications systems have vulnerabilities and could be compromised, and it's been made very clear from a US perspective, our independent judiciary, that companies like Huawei pose some threats," Pompeo said.
Huawei has always denied being controlled by the Chinese government.
Its CEO Ren Zhengfei recently dismissed concerns against his firm as "politically motivated, vowing that "the US will never crush us".
Yesterday, a report in the New York Times suggested that Huawei plans to sue the US government over its attempts to build an international anti-Huawei coalition.
Huawei says that its new Brussels lab will have three key functions: to showcase Huawei's end-to-end cyber security practices, including around 5G, IoT, and cloud; to communicate with stakeholders and partners on cyber security strategies; and to provide a product security testing and verification platform to Huawei customers.
At its launch today, Hu added: "Huawei's cybersecurity transparency centres are open to customers and independent third-party testing organisations. They are invited to perform fair, objective, and independent security tests and verifications according to industry-recognised cybersecurity standards and best practices."
