Single central authentication at Hella Gutmann Solutions

Cyber security function added to mega macs diagnostics software

Hella Gutmann Solutions (HGS) has implemented a universal key to legally unlock secured vehicles via its mega macs software.

The new ‘cyber security management’ (CSM) function gives workshops access diagnostic releases for their customer vehicle’s using one-time authentication instead of having to register individually with each OE portal.

A HGS spokesperson said: “Proof of identification by passport or identity card is all it takes and the mega macs user then has a clear path to work on all vehicles with a security lock at the usual diagnostic depth.

“The mega macs user is also spared the need to load and install manufacturer-specific decryption software on a notebook or PC, because HGS has implemented all the necessary modules for the exchange of vehicle-related security certificates with the vehicle manufacturer’s relevant servers and backends, in the mega macs software.”

The CSM will be available to users of mega macs 42 SE, 56, 66, 77 devices and mega macs PC automatically from the update to software version 60 and will grow its coverage of the VM’s secured models step by step.

The first integrated brands include FCA and Mercedes-Benz, followed by VW and Kia.

Full implementations with Hyundai, Nissan and Renault are to follow shortly.

Vehicle cyber security systems explained

Security Gateway, Certificate Based Automotive Security, Protection of Vehicle Diagnostics, Central Gateway, CAN Gateway – behind these terms are systems designed to protect modern vehicles against unauthorised access and manipulation of their data.

This may be beneficial to security, but it involves considerable effort for garages working across multiple brands.

Only authentication in the respective OE portal, the installation of activation software and the acquisition of digital authorisations in the form of certificates, tokens or keys clear the way to the ECUs.

Now mega macs has a cyber security management function offers workshops a one-time authentication process.
