Enable intelligent plug & charge for electric vehicles with secure communication
Plug and charge is one of the most advanced developments in electric vehicle technology. It is an easy and straightforward way to charge the vehicle by connecting the charging cable of the EV to the charging station. This process requires the EV and charging station to establish and share a secure communication link. Several required actions from both sides ensure confidentiality, data integrity, and authenticity.
As per international standard ISO 15118, authentication and information exchange must happen with secure encryption and decryption to protect from third-party manipulation.
Secure communication and authentication are possible with cryptographic operations based on hardware security modules.
