NCCoE Learning Series: Electric Vehicle (EV) Extreme Fast Charging (XFC) Cybersecurity Framework Profile


As the next step in charging speeds, Electric Vehicle (EV) Extreme Fast Charging (XFC) offers a competitive solution by providing EV drivers up to, and potentially beyond, 350kW of power along transportation corridors, allowing small vehicles to charge in minutes instead of hours and laying groundwork to make large EVs realistic.

During this learning series, attendees will learn about: 

  • The National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) new Electric Vehicle Extreme Fast Charging Cybersecurity Framework Profile Initiative
  • Why we are undertaking this initiative
  • What the project will entail
  • How the public can get involved in the project


The electric vehicle (EV) extreme fast charging (XFC) infrastructure ecosystem relies on multiple connected subsystems to include eXtreme Fast Charging, Electric Vehicle, XFC Cloud or Third-party Operator, and XFC and Utility-Building Networks. The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Vehicle Technologies Office (VTO) and Office of Cybersecurity, Energy Security, and Emergency Response (CESER) has funded a collaborative project through the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) to establish Cybersecurity Framework Profile for EV XFC infrastructure. The primary stakeholders initiating the effort include DOE, NIST, and the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI). This effort will provide users with a national level, risk-based approach for managing cybersecurity activities for EV XFC systems.
