The Future Is Now
Imagine the scene: an electric vehicle driver pulls up to a charging station and tamper-proof charging begins, automatically. No driver action is required! This futuristic scenario isn’t all to far off, but it depends on us to program products that will enable this technology to be interoperable worldwide.
Plug & Charge Technology
Plug & Charge is an innovative and industry-approved solution that makes RFID cards and QR codes a thing of the past. Part of the international ISO 15118 standard, Plug & Charge is a completely tamper-proof charging communication protocol that ensures user convenience and encrypted end-to-end security.
The problem? Plug & Charges requires hundreds of complex security specifications to implement. This prevents many companies from using this incredible, future-proof technology in their products. And thus, puts end users and charge point operators at risk of attacks from malicious third parties and hackers.
Understandable and Step-By-Step Instructions
“Data Security and Plug & Charge With ISO 15118” is the world’s most comprehensive course on secure electric vehicle charging communication. All 30 videos will take your knowledge and operations to the next level as we go through all you need to know, in an easy-to-follow format.
This course was designed specifically for engineers who want to implement the secure Plug & Charge technology into their EV charging products. You don’t need to be a cryptography expert to follow along. But you will be, by the end of the course!
The intensive, multilevel training is structured into three modules: each of which you can enroll in separately, as they are available in both a bundle package and as standalone courses. You can complete the entire intensive course or choose which modules you need and build your own individualized study plan.
This first module will build your working knowledge of cryptography and explore the world of hybrid cryptosystems, digital certificates and signatures, and public-key infrastructures.
After completing the 11 videos in Module I, you will:
The second module is dedicated to understanding how the EV and charging station establish a secure communication channel using Transport Layer Security. You’ll also learn how to set up the EV so it can automatically and even wirelessly authorize itself for charging, no RFID cards or QR codes needed.
After completing the eight videos in Module II, you’ll:
During the final module of the course, you will learn all about market roles, processes, and interfaces necessary to establish a smoothly running Plug & Charge ecosystem.
After completing the 11 videos in Module III, you will:
Ongoing Resources & Community
“Data Security and Plug & Charge With ISO 15118” comes with the full transcript of each of the 30 videos, so you can follow along as we go. You can also use this hundred-and-ten-page document after the course as a reference guide and for searching within the document to access the detailed information you need during a specific implementation. Overall, this course will save you time and resources by preventing you from implementing faulty software and through bulletproofing your solutions before they leave your computer.
Joining this course also means you are officially joining the V2G Clarity community. Together with myself and countless other engineers worldwide, we will openly troubleshoot any issues that come up within each other’s implementations. You’ll also have access to me as a resource any time you get held up by a concept within the curriculum.

Over the last decade, I have become a recognized e-mobility expert after developing
the widely-used RISE V2G software and co-authoring the ISO 15118 and related
international standards. I now work with companies and research institutions across the globe to integrate RISE
V2G and ISO 15118’s promising Plug & Charge feature into their products and
While I was working on my Ph.D. in computer science at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), I became a member of the prestigious German DIN standardization committee. Since then, my mission has been to help bring convenient, secure, and user-friendly electric vehicle charging to a global audience.
I genuinely believe ISO 15118 and Plug & Charge will transform electric vehicle charging. With this course, my “ISO 15118 Manual” eBook, and my consulting within the industry, I hope to contribute to making this vision a reality. Join me in driving the electric vehicle market forward to revolutionize the future of worldwide transportation.
