NVIDIA chips are widely used in cloud computing and AI server today. Various companies uses those cloud computers and AI servers to deliver their product and the data processed by the cloud computer and AI server is the most valuable assets for them. This requires NVIDIA to deliver the world's most secure chip and system for cloud computing and AI server. We, NVIDIA MMPLEX SECURITY team, delivers secure engines to NVIDIA's GPU and Tegra chips to help protect both NVIDIA and customer's assets. Those engines are usually composed by a RISC-V core with secure extension, some crypto HW accelerators, and other components which is required to form a security sub-system.
