Interesting SmartGrid use case for wolfSSL: ISO 15118

Hi!  If you`re interested in smart grid security, and specifically the security required when connecting an electric car to the smart grid, this post is for you!

wolfSSL has recently been supporting the development efforts of eNterop (as of 26 March 2018 at 9:30m MDT, this link no longer works and has no alternative), which is a group led by Germany`s Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology (BMWi), and includes Germany`s Continental AG, a leading auto parts manufacturer, as well as DaimlerVolkswagenBMW and Siemens.  The eNterop group is putting together an open source implementation of the vehicle-to-grid (V2G) standard ISO 15118.  A component of their open source release will be CyaSSL.  

The standards designers for ISO 15118 knew they had some security critical data flowing between the vehicle and the smartgrid, including billing data, Customer ID, location data, firmware and software updates.  As such, security is a critical part of the standard, and TLS 1.2 is the chosen method, which is where CyaSSL comes in.

As the most widely used embedded implementation of the TLS 1.2 standard, CyaSSL is the ideal choice for electric vehicle to grid security.
