In the context of Vehicle To Grid, various cyber attacks can target electric vehicles as well as their charging station.
The present invention solves the security problem related to the EVExchange attack and, in general, to all relay-type attacks: it allows for greater security in communication and in energy exchange between electric vehicles and smart grids.
This countermeasure allows to prevent relay-type attacks without having to make changes to the implementation of current communication protocols.

  • A Method and system for reconstructing the micro-Doppler spectrogram from estimated scattered channel in communication and sensing joint applications

    There is growing interest in human tracking, human activity recognition (HAR), and person identification by reusing wireless signals transmitted by existing communication devices, such as WiFi and cellular radio transceivers. Radiofrequency sensing systems have emerged as viable alternatives to cameras[...]

  • Device authentication through earphones

    This patent covers a method than can authenticate a person using earphones, thanks to the movement of the mouth. The earphones record the shape of the ear canal during a predefined movement of the mandible and a machine learning algorithm[...]

  • A resilient and user-friendly CAPTCHA

    In order to protect on line services form malicious attacks, access is only granted to users by solving a CAPTCHA (Completely Automated Public Turing Test to Tell Computers and Humans Apart) to distinguish a human user from a malicious software[...]
