THE SECURE DATA RELEASE MODEL
VSP (Vehicle Security Professional) is a data exchange system conceived and designed cooperatively by automakers, the independent repair community, and the insurance and law enforcement communities; it allows the aftermarket to access security sensitive information related to automobiles (i.e. key codes, PIN numbers, immobilizer reset information and similar types of information). VSP allows access to security-related information while protecting the safety and security of consumers and the integrity of automobile security systems.
