Nvidia jumps on the Rambus

by on25 October 2016

Will use Differential Power Analysis technology

Rambus has announced that Nvidia has licensed its Differential Power Analysis (DPA) countermeasures to protect its visual computing products against side-channel attacks.

Martin Scott, general manager of the Rambus Security Division said that the technology will be used by Nvidia to continuously assess the security risk associated with higher levels of connectivity.

“By integrating DPA countermeasures into their products, NVIDIA is at the forefront of ensuring the integrity of their solutions in a variety of advanced application areas,” he said.

DPA countermeasures, developed by Rambus Cryptography Research, consist of a broad range of software, hardware, and protocol techniques that protect devices.

DPA is a type of side-channel attack that monitors variations in the electrical power consumption or electro-magnetic emissions from a target device. These measurements can be used to obtain cryptographic keys and other sensitive information from semiconductors and devices.
