The future of data security for electric vehicle charging is here and it’s called: Plug & Charge. Advanced Course II teaches you to successfully apply this multifaceted data security mechanism to your product line.

This course is for programmers, engineers and manufacturers looking to create a tamper-free and standard-compliant product that is interoperable with the vast majority of products out there, leading to increased demand on your customer base.

Without secure communication between EVs and charging stations, man-in-the-middle attacks can intercept and modify messages. By using Plug & Charge, you’ll prevent:

  • Financial loss for drivers and charging station operators from manipulated energy flow data
  • Driver frustration and loss of trust in EV technology
  • Grid blackouts due to massive data attacks during simultaneous charging sessions

The energy grid is a critical infrastructure and needs to be protected with the utmost measures of data security. Advanced Course II enables you to do just that.

Step-by-step, I’ll help you guarantee secure and reliable charging and billing within your product line. You’ll also learn how to establish authenticity and data integrity using digital signatures, the types of digital certificates needed, and the precise handling of digital certificates within the public key infrastructures specified by ISO 15118.

With that knowledge at hand, we’ll dive into the trickiest part of security handling: the installation of the contract certificate that enables the EV to authenticate itself for a secure charging session. This particular part is often misunderstood and implemented incorrectly.

All these security-related functions are carried out in the very core of RISE V2G, which also manages other common functionalities that can be accessed by EVs and charging stations running ISO 15118. Among those common functionalities are fundamental operations for sending and receiving messages, checking the validity of each message, and helpful utility classes that make coding ISO 15118 more straightforward for you.

Once you’ve finished Advanced Course 1 and 2, your ability to adapt RISE V2G to your exact needs will be limitless. With a thorough understanding and implementation of ISO 15118, you’ll minimize implementation costs and maximize the outcome of your investment. Join now and develop secure and future-proof market solutions in no time.

This in-depth video course builds on my free course, Revolutionize Electronic Vehicle Charging – with RISE V2G Powered by Plug & Charge.

What Others Say About RISE V2G

Stephan Cater
ICT Solutions eMobility, innogy SE

RISE V2G has accelerated the implementation of ISO 15118 Plug & Charge in our backend. With open sources and compatible licensing, it can be a future-proof building block of our software. Conversely, we can share our experience with the V2G community and help design a reference implementation.

We are an R&D company specializing on electric mobility and high efficiency Silicon Carbide charging systems. Thanks to RISE V2G, we were able to develop our own solution for DIN SPEC 70121 and ISO 15118 communication in just a couple of months. The knowledge offered by V2G Clarity, like the ISO 15118 Manual and the RISE V2G software, really helped to better understand the standard.

What Marc has done is meaningful to the world. It not only decreases the difficulty to implement the brand-new Combined Charging System, but also increases the efficiency by which innovative charging infrastructure can be built for the upcoming EV era. Thanks to RISE V2G, I have a feeling smart grid technology innovations will become a reality around the world in the years to come. I believe this achievement is a historical milestone and will be appreciated and utilized from one generation to another.

RISE V2G is a practical technology that helps to develop charging devices that meet the international ISO 15118 standard. In addition, the explanations given via email and in his ISO 15118 Manual tremendously minimize the developers’ confusion about the difficult parts of the international standard itself. His products and services are an excellent and well-appreciated resource.

As a 1st tier supplier of several automotive OEMs (e.g. VW, Daimler, Porsche, BMW, Audi) we develop various electronic control units, including OnBoard-Chargers (AC / DC). Due to the high effort to set up this EVSE simulation, however, I decided to deploy RISE V2G to a RaspberryPi, which is an affordable system-on-chip Linux system. A QCA7000 chip is connected via SPI to the RaspberryPi. RISE V2G is running in parallel with Oracle Java for the ISO 15118 communication. This significantly reduces our costs and scales way better to set up various test sites across our department.

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 innovations.

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.
