Electric vehicles (EV) exist in a context that sees cars exchange data more than ever before. Vehicle software updates, communication with nearby devices, and even managing and unlocking vehicles remotely are all now becoming part of the daily reality of EV consumer ownership. But how are all of these communications secured?

About the event

This talk will introduce how modern cryptography is used to secure transport layer communications and especially how lightweight secure channel protocols can be applied in the context of Electric Vehicles. Namely, the following questions will be discussed (and more):

  • What are cryptographic protocols? How can they be useful in the context of EV?
  • How do we choose the right cryptographic protocols? How do we determine which security guarantees we need? Do we really need to use TLS?
  • How do we verify the correctness of protocol specifications, designs and practical implementations?
  • How do we ensure that deployed cryptographic protocols can survive on hardware meant to last for a decade without necessitating expensive upgrades and replacements?
