U.S. officials are considering using visa restrictions to prevent Chinese hackers from attending popular summer hacker conferences in Las Vegas as part of a broad effort to curb Chinese cyber espionage, a senior administration official said on Saturday.

The official said the U.S. government could use such visa restrictions and other measures to keep Chinese nationals from attending the Def Con and Black Hat conferences in August to help maintain pressure on China after the United States this week charged five Chinese military officers with hackinginto U.S. nuclear, metal and solar companies to steal trade secrets.

China has denied the charges, saying the U.S. grand jury indictment was « made up » and would damage trust between the two nations.

Organizers of the two conferences said they knew nothing about the efforts under consideration by Washington, but that they believed limiting participation from China was a bad idea.
