In the future, electric vehicles will communicate to a great extent with their surroundings, both while driving and during charging. In particular, by integrating these vehicles into the intelligent energy grid (smart grid) and the use of value added services, the topic of data security and data protection has to be integrated into the system approaches in the charging and billing process from the very beginning.

The charging process of an electric vehicle requires a large number of different use cases on the basis of several standards. These are developed or expanded and supplemented (as described in the German Standardization Roadmap Electromobility Version 3.0) and serve as basis for a comprehensive IT security analysis. In this case, the requirements for information security for emobilty must be assessed with regard to intelligibility, everyday suitability, adequacy, economic viability and longevity, and supplementary recommendations for action must be taken in order to ensure a complete data security during measurement and billing processes. For the safety and transparency of the measurement and billing procedures, the requirements resulting from the measurement and calibration law are to be presented, as well as suitable systems for measurement, testing and billing are to be designed and implemented prototypically.

Project duration: 01.01.2016 - 31.12.2018

The goal of the subproject of the TU Dortmund in the consortium project DELTA is to develop procedures and processes for the conformance of the protection profile against the background of the communication between primary and secondary actors, and to derive necessary tests for this purpose based on a jointly developed protection profile.

The resulting results are to be introduced into the development of an edition 2.0 of the ISO 15118 standard. In addition to the consideration of the safety-relevant properties, this subproject is also intended to elaborate and evaluate approaches to the extent to which metrological aspects can also be automatically integrated into a test process.

Location & approach

The campus of TU Dort­mund University is located close to interstate junction Dort­mund West, where the Sauerlandlinie A 45 (Frankfurt-Dort­mund) crosses the Ruhrschnellweg B 1 / A 40. The best interstate exit to take from A 45 is “Dort­mund-Eichlinghofen” (closer to South Campus), and from B 1 / A 40 “Dort­mund-Dorstfeld” (closer to North Campus). Signs for the uni­ver­si­ty are located at both exits. Also, there is a new exit before you pass over the B 1-bridge leading into Dort­mund.

To get from North Campus to South Campus by car, there is the connection via Vogelpothsweg/Baroper Straße. We recommend you leave your car on one of the parking lots at North Campus and use the H-Bahn (suspended monorail system), which conveniently connects the two campuses.

TU Dort­mund University has its own train station (“Dort­mund Uni­ver­si­tät”). From there, suburban trains (S-Bahn) leave for Dort­mund main station (“Dort­mund Hauptbahnhof”) and Düsseldorf main station via the “Düsseldorf Airport Train Station” (take S-Bahn number 1, which leaves every 20 or 30 minutes). The uni­ver­si­ty is easily reached from Bochum, Essen, Mülheim an der Ruhr and Duisburg.

You can also take the bus or subway train from Dort­mund city to the uni­ver­si­ty: From Dort­mund main station, you can take any train bound for the Station “Stadtgarten”, usually lines U41, U45, U 47 and U49. At “Stadtgarten” you switch trains and get on line U42 towards “Hombruch”. Look out for the Station “An der Palmweide”. From the bus stop just across the road, busses bound for TU Dort­mund University leave every ten minutes (445, 447 and 462). Another option is to take the subway routes U41, U45, U47 and U49 from Dort­mund main station to the stop “Dort­mund Kampstraße”. From there, take U43 or U44 to the stop “Dort­mund Wittener Straße”. Switch to bus line 447 and get off at “Dort­mund Uni­ver­si­tät S”.

The AirportExpress is a fast and convenient means of transport from Dortmund Airport (DTM) to Dortmund Central Station, taking you there in little more than 20 minutes. From Dortmund Central Station, you can continue to the university campus by interurban railway (S-Bahn). A larger range of international flight connections is offered at Düsseldorf Airport (DUS), which is about 60 kilometres away and can be directly reached by S-Bahn from the university station.

The H-Bahn is one of the hallmarks of TU Dort­mund University. There are two stations on North Campus. One (“Dort­mund Uni­ver­si­tät S”) is directly located at the suburban train stop, which connects the uni­ver­si­ty directly with the city of Dort­mund and the rest of the Ruhr Area. Also from this station, there are connections to the “Technologiepark” and (via South Campus) Eichlinghofen. The other station is located at the dining hall at North Campus and offers a direct connection to South Campus every five minutes.

The facilities of TU Dortmund University are spread over two campuses, the larger Campus North and the smaller Campus South. Additionally, some areas of the university are located in the adjacent “Technologiepark”.
