News Summary: Cybersecurity takes center stage

Associated Press

TECH TALKS: President Barack Obama will be looking for signs from China's leader at their upcoming meeting that Beijing is ready to address its reported high-tech spying, which the White House sees as a top threat to the U.S. economy and national security.

IT'S PERSONAL: The summit Friday and Saturday at a California estate also is aimed at establishing personal ties between Obama and Xi as relations between the two global powers grow increasingly complex.

TALK ABOUT NOTHING: The Chinese government denies it engages in such spying against the U.S. But analysts say Beijing has started to indicate some willingness to address the problem during private talks with Secretary of State John Kerry, national security adviser Tom Donilon and others.
