Security tooling for vehicle ODB2 ports

OpenCarLink is an initiative aimed at revolutionizing vehicle diagnostics and security through the development of an open hardware device for vehicle OBD2 ports. By supporting communication protocols such as DOIP, CAN, Kline, and Single-Wire CAN, OpenCarLink enables users to perform remote diagnostics, real-time emissions tracking, enhanced vehicle security through penetration testing, and increased driver safety via behavioral data tracking. This project promotes an open and innovative future for the European mobility sector by help circumventing manufacturer limitations. By releasing the hardware design under an open-source license, OpenCarLink fosters a environment where enthusiasts, researchers, and professionals can contribute to and benefit from the advancements in vehicle diagnostics and control. With a focus on democratizing access to the DOIP protocol, OpenCarLink challenges the restrictive policies and secrecy that currently dominate the automotive industry, help paving the way for a more open and informed society.
