EV-201-2019: Security architecture for EV charging infrastructure [PUBLIC]

This document describes a security architecture for electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure specifying the technical security measures charge point operators (CPOs) can implement. The architecture can act as a blueprint for system integrators and the departments maintaining the system. The architecture is intended to be used together with an information security management system (ISMS) based on ISO 27001:2013 or similar.

Charge Point Operators (CPOs) are controlling more and more electrical load. To support the rapid growth in electric vehicles (EVs), hundreds of thousands of charging stations are being placed throughout Europe, most of them being remotely controlled by CPOs. In this way, larger CPOs are already controlling hundreds of megawatts of demand, comparable to a large gas power plant. And the controlled load will only grow in the future.

The architecture consists of a set of recommended technical security measures that CPOs can use to prevent and detect sabotage and fraud attacks on the EV charging infrastructure.
