The Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia reported that work on the modernization of the unified automated information system for technical inspection of vehicles (EAISTO) has been fully completed and it is being prepared for commissioning. 80 million rubles were allocated for the modernization of EAISTO. With the help of this system, the police want to tighten control over the conduct and quality of maintenance in the field. The work was carried out in preparation for the reform of the entire maintenance system, which is scheduled for March 1, 2021. The purpose of the event is to completely get rid of the practice when diagnostic cards are issued even without checking the car, for money, of course.
A completely ready-made EAISTO algorithm will be at the disposal of the Ministry of Internal Affairs in mid-December and its test period will begin immediately. In the ministry itself, they are now developing an order "On the operation of a unified automated information system for technical inspection of vehicles (EAISTO)" which will launch the reform.
From the beginning of March next year, maintenance stations will be required to photograph the cars they inspect twice - at the very beginning of maintenance and after its end. The photographic materials will be stored in the EAISTO database, and will be issued to the regulatory authorities upon request. And diagnostic cards, which will become electronic, will begin to be signed with an electronic signature of an expert with enhanced protection. Without this signature, the diagnostic card in the system simply will not be generated.
In fact, EAISTO began its work back in 2012 in accordance with the current law on maintenance. True, only in experimental mode. This is due to the presence of a large number of vulnerabilities, using which cybercriminals gained access to the system and forged diagnostic cards. They tried to start the system 6 times.
The EAISTO modernization is designed to introduce cryptographic protection during data transmission. The work is being carried out by Software Product LLC.
