Within the CharIN association, the Task Force PKI has created a guideline on how to build up a Certificate Policy (CP) for certificate services that are used within a Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) referencing ISO 15118 use cases.

A Certificate Policy sets the requirements of how to manage certificates which ensure the security and integrity within the PKI. CharIN´s CP for ISO 15118 V2G PKI is a guideline that defines the minimum requirements for a dedicated PKI implementation guaranteeing a sufficient level of security. The document is supposed to help and accelerate the market rollout of the Plug and Charge feature.

 The Task Force PKI consists of numerous experts all coming from companies that are involved in the Plug and Charge environment such as OEMs, EVSEs, CPOs, eMSPs, and IT security. Therefore, this consolidated cross-industry document represents a reliable guideline for the PKI implementation in systems using ISO 15118.
