Snap-on granted direct access to Nissan's vehicle gateway module

April 16, 2024
For vehicles with the secure gateway module, registration is needed for access to certain diagnostic functions.

Snap-on has been approved by Nissan for direct access to their vehicle gateway module from Snap-on scan tools. The Nissan secure systems are available on Snap-on Wi-Fi-enabled products operating the latest software. 

To protect their vehicles' networks from unauthorized access, Nissan, along with other automobile manufacturers, have 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. 

The Snap-on Security Link solution provides diagnostic platform owners with a uniform method to access secured vehicle systems from their diagnostic tool gateway modules. Snap-on 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 diagnostic platforms using current software to perform secure gateway functions. Nissan's secure gateway compliant solutions require device and user registration through AUTOAUTH. The Snap-on Security Link is designed to help navigate this process.
