ETI Joins New SAE Initiative On Automotive Cybersecurity

The newly formed task force is looking to create a set of standards to help secure the diagnostic link connector while maintaining legitimate access for OBD emissions testing, aftermarket repair tools and technicians.

ETI is now participating as a charter member of a new SAE initiative on automotive cybersecurity.

SAE J3138 Data Link Connector Vehicle Security Committee and the associated Task Force has been created to address security concerns with the OBD (J1962) connector. This effort is in response to recent inquires from Congress and NHTSA to prevent unauthorized vehicle hacking.

The newly formed task force is looking to create a set of standards to help secure the diagnostic link connector (DLC) while maintaining legitimate access for OBD emissions testing, aftermarket repair tools and technicians.

ETI encourages technical participation in this effort from all of its members that access in-vehicle network data. The relevant SAE committee identifiers are TEVDS20 and TEVDS21 for the committee and task force respectively.
