Vehicle Bus Usage Policy (J1708/J1939)

Micronet device can be connected to a vehicle's on-board communication bus using protocols such as CAN or J1708.

WARNING: This capability, included when the CAN or J1708 or other on board communication protocol are implemented and/or licensed, could provide an opportunity for an unauthorized user to interrupt or take control of vehicle functions, which could result in potentially severe consequences of property damage, injury, or death. Accordingly the use of the communication protocol is provided for your convenience and its use is at your own risk. It is NOT INHERENTLY SECURE and we cannot and do not guarantee the privacy of your data and communication while using such communication protocol.

Furthermore, due to the nature of the on-board communication protocols it is possible that the data stored on the vehicle could be mistakenly released, lost or even hacked by unwanted individuals. Therefore if you feel that such a risk can cause loss then please do not use on-board communication protocol. We recommend that the Micronet product would only be used in an environment that is appropriately secured against both physical and remote access from unauthorized users. Prudent measures may include, among other items, storing vehicles in locked facilities, encrypting and authenticating all wireless communications to or from the device, disallowing direct access to public zones such as the Vehicle functions, reducing exposure to data originating from or traversing untrusted or unsafe servers, and real-time monitoring of all incoming and outgoing data traffic. As mentioned there are potentially serious security issues with any computer connected to on board communication protocol without the appropriate protection, ranging from viruses, worms and other programs that can damage the user’s computer, to attacks on the computer by unauthorized or unwanted third parties. By using the on board communication protocol, you acknowledge and knowingly accept the potentially serious risks of accessing the Vehicle functions over an unsecured network. It is recommended that users take steps to protect their own computer system, such as installing current anti-virus software and maintaining appropriate firewall protection. For further information on how to protect yourself on this open network, consult a security professional.

You acknowledge and agree that YOUR USE OF ON BOARD COMMUNICATION PROTOCOL IS SOLELY AT YOUR OWN RISK.
