Auto Task Force Releases System to Access Key Codes

February 14, 2008

LEESBURG, Va. --- The National Automotive Service Task Force (NASTF)  announced that the Secure Data Release Model (SDRM), which allows properly vetted technicians and security professionals to access key codes, immobilizer PINs and other security-related information, has been released to the collision-repair industry. 

"The NASTF Vehicle Security Committee has been working on the SDRM model for over three years and we are pleased to have achieved this historic agreement," said NASTF Chairman Charlie Gorman. "Until now, there has never been general access to the security-related information available directly from the vehicle manufacturers."  

Details about the SDRM are now available on the NASTF website at www.nastf.org. This information covers the registration process and the requirements necessary for a repairer or other security professional to access this security-related information. The website also provides a link to download the necessary forms to apply for inclusion in the national registry, which prequalifies participants who will then be able to access the security-related information directly from automaker websites.
