Cybersecurity of Electric Vehicle Chargers

At the very simplest level we’ve seen card skimmers at charging stations. This event is aiming to go much deeper. If you’re in the vicinity of Rockville it looks like a worthwhile trip…:

NIST will host a host a one-day meeting focusing on the current state of federal research around the cybersecurity of Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) on Thursday, September 12, 2019 from 8:30a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence in Rockville, MD.

The goal of the briefing is to showcase the current research in this area, highlight challenges associated with cyber-physical protection of electric vehicle technologies, and determine where further research may be necessary. The session will include briefings from federally-funded research laboratories, academic institutions, and automotive and energy industry associations.

This event is intended to serve as a forum for other Federal agencies to provide insights on their research priorities and areas of focus around securing the electric vehicle charging infrastructure. This will help determine where coordination with these existing and future efforts will be beneficial. A successful outcome includes formulating areas of research where cross-agency coordination and cooperation can be pursued.

The briefing is open to the public, but registration is required to attend.
