The AUTOcyb™ - seeks to protect the security, integrity and authenticity of your vehicle's network electronic data. Your Black Box / Event Data Recorder (EDR) will work exactly as it was designed to. However, you determine data access (within State and Federal laws) and thus, control how it is used.
The World's First and Only Automotive Cyber Security Lock - Innovation of the year!
An Event Data Recorder (EDR) is a device or function in a vehicle that records dynamic time series data during the time period just prior to a crash event for post-crash analysis. EDRs are commonly called Automotive "Black Boxes". The U.S. is proposing mandating EDRs that you cannot turn-off, disable, or remove.
Cars and trucks are the next victims of cyberattacks. Our view is that when you purchase a vehicle you own more than just the vehicle. You own the electronic data the vehicle creates. We believe you should control access to this data to prevent tampering and misuse. Thus, we provide a simple solution to do so - a connector lockout.
To install, first find the vehilce's Diagnostic Link Connector (DLC). The location of this port varies by manufacturer and model but all post-1996 light vehicles are required to include this port. Look under the dashboard. Simply plug in the AUTOcyb™ - cyber lock and turn the key. You control data access.
EDRs are willfully installed by automakers in post-1996 light vehicles. The AUTOcyb™ - cyber lock is designed to work with post-1996 passenger cars and light trucks that include an accessible DLC in good condition.
Increasingly, data from EDR / black boxes have been used in court cases nationwide. The AUTOcyb™ - cyber lock secures the download port and establishes a chain of custody for probative evidence. The vehicle owner actively exerts his/her Fourth Amendment expectation of privacy protection.
Privacy and Consumer Protection advocates are rightfully concerned that consumers lack knowledge and understanding of EDRs. Lacking federal protection, 14 states have EDR statutes but they vary widely.
AIRMIKA, INC., is located in the Sandhills region of North Carolina with an office in Southern Pines and warehouse in Aberdeen. We began in 1997 as Click, Inc., and re-started in December 2010 as AIRMIKA, Inc., to enhance two rapidly growing technology spaces: Motor Vehicle Event Data Recorders (MVEDRs) and the Connector Lockout Apparatus for the MVEDR. Tom Kowalick is Founder / President with 15 years of high-level Washington experience working with the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the National Academies of Sciences (NAS), The Transportation Research Board (TRB), the Government Accounting Office (GAO) and the U.S. Congress. Our focus is providing cyber security solutions to enhance automotive networks. We offer essential consumer protection safeguards to vehicle owners. Since 1997, we have been actively involved in Event Data Recorder (EDR) technical development via global standardization, federal legislation and regulation. We hold several U.S. and Foreign EDR patents and have others pending. Our market is 243 million light vehicles. Everyone would benefit from our automotive cyber security safeguard solution. Specifically, vehicle owners must "own" the EDR data, become "aware" of EDRs existence and functioning and must "control access" to the EDR data in their vehicles.
