Hubject and Penta Security have partnered to develop a system of secure communication for EVs and charging stations through the ISO 15118 standard, which supports the Plug&Charge charging and payment process. The partnership allows the companies to validate authentication data through the Vehicle to Grid Root Certification Authority (V2G Root CA).
Seokwoo Lee, CEO of Penta Security, said, “Security in EV charging is an infrastructure that allows more openness with improved control. Through this cross-certification realization, we present the basis for an unrestricted charging environment that provides convenience and accuracy throughout the entire charging and paying process.”
Christian Hahn, CEO of Hubject, said, “We are working for globally open standards. This goes for security as well. Companies adopting the ISO 15118 standard, especially the Plug&Charge use case, now have the security, that, whatever service provider they are choosing to work with, will be supported by the other Root CA operator, so that there is no lock-in effect.”
