Dates & Information on Online Trainings in May 2020 | In spite of standardization and user-friendly tools, the complexity of vehicle diagnostics basically demands more or less sound know-how, depending on the area of application and requirements. Whether beginner or advanced, of course we are happy to support you with your daily challenges and offer a wide range of basic and specialist training sessions and workshops on the topics of vehicle diagnostics, the ODX and OTX standard and the use of our tools.

Diagnostics and Security: Brave new world

Diagnostics and Security: Gateways for hackers and how to close them – As long as diagnostics takes place locally, in other words using a cable connection between the diagnostic tester and the diagnostic interface or the vehicle, it is safe to assume that the diagnostic system is basically secure as far as unauthorized access is concerned. But the picture changes as soon as there is a remote data connection over the Internet.

Secure and Convenient Diagnostics in ECU and Vehicle Engineering over DoIP

OBD to Ethernet Adapter for DoiP

Softing Automotive offers wireless and wired adapters for secure, convenient diagnostics in ECU and vehicle engineering. Communication with a Device under Test (FMU, HiL, vehicle, ..) takes place over the DoIP interface between an application and the VCI VIN|ING 600 (WLAN to Ethernet Bridge). Alternatively, we offer wired connections using patch cords and individually angled OBD diagnostic connectors on RJ45.

Cybersecurity: Protecting a cyber-physical remote diganostic communication system against cyberattacks

Article on Cybersecurity

The wireless and remote connection between a diagnostic tester and a fleet of vehicles can be considered a technical masterpiece, but only if new challenges such as closing security gaps are mastered. The article analyzes the components of the cyber-physical system (CPS) for remote diagnostic communication and provides measures to improve the resilience against cyberattacks.
