Abstract

During the process of charging, electric vehicle’s location is usually revealed when making payment. This brings about the potential risk to privacy of electric vehicle. We observe that the trade information recorded on blockchain may raise privacy concern and therefore, we propose a blockchain oriented approach to resolve the privacy issue without restricting trading activities through \((\epsilon , \delta )\)-differential privacy. The proposed scheme does not only preserve the electric vehicle’s location; however, prevents semantic, linking and data mining based attacks. Simulation results show that as the privacy level increases, the risk revealing decreases as well.
