Keep Your Key Code Account working - Learn About the SDRM 2.0 Account Migration

The new SDRM 2.0 Registry software is set to release on November 5th. It brings a number of new features that you have never had before. VSPs will be able to manage their accounts and passwords, Renew or apply for new Primary and Sub accounts, Check status of automaker websites and most importantly fill out D1 forms that are custom tailored for the different jobs you do online. 

To migrate over 6000 active VSPs NASTF needs your help to review your account and move us off of paper by uploading your membership documents. This is a directed process that will take less than 30 minutes from beginning to end including setting up your smart phone or tablet to access our new 2 form factor authentication system (Authy). To help you to prepare we have created two tools to help. 

 Click here for a list of the documents we need you to collect so you can electronically upload them to SDRM 2.0. Please read this before you ask us about surety/employee dishonesty bonds. The information is right there in the document as to the conditions under which you must have one.  

Click here for a 14 minute video on what to expect and how to migrate your account when we send your invitation. If you do not watch the entire piece you will not know how to complete the process and upload your documents. We have received dozens of calls and emails on this. Hint: it is in the last two minutes of the video. Currently the average time spent watching is 37 seconds. 

NOTE: We are working with our very large accounts, who have agreed to help us refine the process for everyone else. Starting the week of October 15th we will start rolling out invitations to the rest of the community. Primary account holders will be invited first as they must be setup before sub accounts can setup. Please review this information carefully and completely before calling or emailing questions. All the answers you should need for this part of the process are contained in the two pieces above. We will not leave any active VSPs behind. If you have not received an invitation by Nov 5th reach out to us.  

We have found that many of our VSPs are sharing email addresses or using generic emails like Each VSP should have their own private email to avoid account mismatch problems. This is particularly important with businesses with multiple sub accounts.

What is the VSP Registry?

The NASTF Vehicle Security Professional (VSP) Registry is a service created from the NASTF Secure Data Release Model (SDRM), a project of the NASTF Vehicle Security Committee. SDRM is a data exchange system (see graphic below) conceived and designed cooperatively by automakers, the independent repair, 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.  The NASTF VSP Registry program allows access to security-related information while protecting the safety and security of consumers and the integrity of automobile security systems.

Who should use the NASTF VSP Registry and why?

USA-resident* locksmiths and automotive technicians qualified in vehicle security system repairs need a subscription to the NASTF VSP Registry in order to purchase security codes and VIN-specific computer files directly from the OEM/automaker. Most automakers/OEMs make this information available instantly from their websites 24/7/365. See a list of the OEMs and the model year ranges available in this pdf file (click HERE).

Canadian resident locksmiths and automotive technicians can participate in the VSP. Email John Norris.
