OCPP 1.6 Security Whitepaper
This white paper describes how the security enhancements, introduced in OCPP 2.0 and later OCPP 2.0.1, can be used, on top of OCPP 1.6-J, in a standardized way.
The security part of OCPP 2.0(.1) was developed to strengthen and mature the future development and standardization of OCPP. Security requirements are included, on security measures for both Charge Point and Central System, to help developers build a secure OCPP implementation.
This document contains the following security improvements:
- Secure connection setup
- Security events/logging
- Secure firmware update
OCPP 1.6 Security Whitepaper edition 2 is supported by a compliance testing tool for self-testing and can be certified as part of the OCPP Certification Program.
