Latest Snap-on® Diagnostic Software Release Includes New Access to Nissan Secured Gateway Vehicles

Snap-on® announces it is the first in Europe to receive approval from Nissan for direct access to their vehicle gateway module from Snap-on scan tools. The ability to work with this manufacturer, along with its existing ability to access 2018 and newer FIAT Chrysler Automobiles (FCA), is available in the latest diagnostic software release.

Vehicle manufacturers are developing solutions to protect their vehicles’ networks from unauthorised access, including potential cyber-attacks. Nissan has recently implemented a secure gateway module that was introduced on a selection of their 2019 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 Security Link™ provides a uniform solution for Snap-on diagnostic platform owners, to access secured vehicle systems from their diagnostic tool gateway modules. Snap-on has worked closely with Nissan to develop a solution that uses Nissan’s Aftermarket Scan Tool User Management and Tool Registration system known as AUTOAUTH to allow Wi-Fi-enabled Snap-on diagnostic platforms using current software to perform secure gateway functions. All secure gateway compliant solutions require device and user registration through AUTOAUTH – Nissan and direct with FCA for Fiat, Chrysler and Alfa vehicles. Snap-on Security Link is designed to help navigate through this new process.
