SFD - Schutz FahrzeugDiagnose= Vehicle Diagnostic Protection
Please note for the new MQB Platform cars there is a new security protocol

Bottom line as at 12th June 2020 you can only scan one of these cars with your OBD11 / VCDS Application's,

VCP Have a work around in the latest release but this will be replaced with a proper end to end system (as will OBD11 and VCDS) upgrade.

This extra security is to help stop hacking of your car (which will almost certainly be connected to the internet going forward) but also has the ability to tell VAG Head office what changes you have made to the car.

Time will tell the true motive of this change - eg as stated above plus making all retrofits only possible via an Authorised dealer.

However what we have learnt from the gaming industry every time new anti tamper software is introduced, somebody will be working on cracking it much as the tuning companies do to the ECU's today.

For you information I have attached a document talking about the changes in relation to ODIS
