SAE ITC launches EVPKI Consortium for secure EV charging

The mission is to create and manage an inclusive framework for secure digital trust across the electric mobility PKI ecosystem.

SAE Industry Technologies Consortia (SAE ITC) launched the Electric Vehicle Public Key Infrastructure Consortium (EVPKI Consortium). The Consortium has formally launched with four charter members: ChargePoint, Electrify America, Ford Motor Company and General Motors (GM).

According to the Consortium, the mission is to create and manage an inclusive framework for secure digital trust across the electric mobility PKI ecosystem to accelerate EV adoption and optimize the user experience. The Consortium welcomes additional private companies and public sector organizations in the EV charging ecosystem to participate, the companies say. 

The Consortium implements and manages the SAE EVPKI Platform, which was developed and tested by a cross-industry team of EV industry leaders including EV OEMs, charging manufacturers and providers and EV ecosystem companies. It is focused on creating an open and interoperable PKI marketplace for the global EV ecosystem.  

The Consortium said its goals include:

  • Deliver and manage a comprehensive, transparent PKI governance for all industry;
  • Develop a certificate trust list to achieve an interoperable PKI marketplace;
  • Implement a robust PKI testing program to achieve PKI interoperability;
  • Enhance cross-industry PKI collaboration, insight and education.

SAE said it will publish the SAE EVPKI Certificate Policy in the coming weeks. The Certificate Policy is a document that provides an integrated set of technologies, protocols, identity-proofing, lifecycle management and auditing requirements for the issuance and management of an SAE EVPKI-compliant PKI root.
