AUTOcyb™ - the World's First Automotive Black Box Cyber Security Lock Project at

The U.S. is proposing mandating automotive "black boxes" commonly termed 'event data recorders' (EDRs) that you cannot turn-off, disable, or remove. Even if they do not proceed with the regulation - your vehicle probably already has one. Secure access to your data and protect privacy with an AUTOcyb™ - cyber security lock.

SOUTHERN PINES, N.C., May 1, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- AIRMIKA, INC. believes 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 and stores. We believe you should control access to this data to prevent tampering and misuse.  Thus, we provide a simple solution to do so, the AUTOcyb™ - automotive cyber security lock, a vehicle connector lockout to safeguard access to in-vehicle electronics networks.  


The AUTOcyb™ is designed for post-1996 light vehicles (cars and light trucks) that contain a Diagnostic Link Connector (DLC) which is accessible and in good working condition. It attaches to the vehicle's DLC, normally located under the dash, and can be removed for vehicle maintenance, inspection, or emissions testing. This connector lockout gives the reassurance of knowing that you have control of crash data access. The black box / EDR will still work exactly as it is designed to. You determine when and who sees the data (within State law) and thus, control how it is used.

This device protects you against unlawful search and seizure and demonstrates that the vehicle owner is actively exerting an expectation of privacy. The AUTOcyb™ is U.S. patented and globally standardized by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) as IEEE-1616a.

Help make it happen for the World's First Automotive Black Box Cyber Security Lock Project.  The crowdfunded project is looking to raise $132,000 by May 14th. Those who contribute $33 will receive an AUTOCyb™ lock for their car or light truck delivered USPS first class nationwide in May 2013. The proceeds of the project, which is hosted on, will go to ramping up product development, production and marketing.  Click here. The project is about driving protection - something everyone needs. Your involvement is essential. Share this important and timely information with others.
