OCPP Protocol: Security Threats and Challenges

  title={OCPP Protocol: Security Threats and Challenges},
  author={Cristina Alcaraz and Javier L{\'o}pez and Stephen D. Wolthusen},

One benefit postulated for the adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) is their ability to act as stabilizing entities in smart grids through bidirectional charging, allowing local or global smoothing of peaks and imbalances. This benefit, however, hinges indirectly on the reliability and security of the power flows thus achieved. Therefore, this paper studies key security properties of the already-deployed Open Charge Point Protocol specifying communication between charging points and energy… CONTINUE READING
