Automobile manufacturers are developing solutions to protect their vehicles’ networks from unauthorized access, including potential cyber-attacks. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) recently implemented a secure gateway module that was introduced on a selection of their 2018 and newer model vehicles.
For those vehicles with the secure gateway module, access to certain diagnostic functions requires registration and authentication through an approved device for all aftermarket scan tools.
Snap-on introduced its Secure Vehicle Gateway™ solution to provide direct access to secure OEM vehicle gateway modules. Snap-on and FCA worked closely to develop a solution that uses FCA’s Aftermarket Scan Tool User Management and Tool Registration system known as AUTOAUTH to allow Wi-Fi enabled diagnostics platforms using current software to perform secure gateway functions.
All FCA secure gateway compliant solutions require device and user registration through AUTOAUTH. The Snap-on Secure Vehicle Gateway™ is designed to help navigate through this new process.
As additional OEMs implement similar network protection technology, the Snap-on Secure Vehicle Gateway will help you manage multiple OEM accounts for direct from the tool vehicle network access.
