SecEdge and Advantech Partner to Deliver AI Model Protection on NVIDIA Edge AI Platforms


Digital security leader SecEdge and Advantech, a leading provider of AI computing systems, announced a partnership to deliver a complete chip-to-cloud security solution for edge AI.

Advantech, an Elite partner in the NVIDIA Partner Network, has made available the SecEdge SEC-TPM solution in its MIC-AI AI inference system based on the NVIDIA Jetson edge AI platform, providing customers with an out-of-the-box solution that accelerates secure edge AI deployments. SEC-TPM is a firmware trusted platform module (fTPM) coupled with a secure provisioning service that ensures AI model security while reducing Bill-of-Materials BOM cost.

The solution brings a number of benefits:

AI Model Protection
AI models represent a large investment in intellectual property that must be protected from corruption or theft. Protecting AI at the edge presents a unique set of challenges. SEC-TPM protects AI models at rest and maintains AI model integrity with secure remote management.

Device Integrity
Device integrity is ensured with trust provisioning and management of SEC-TPM, eliminating the need of a discrete TPM chip or secure manufacturing facility.

Multi-Tenant Secure Device Access
The solution enables secure connectivity across applications with independent IPSec tunnels. For example, a traffic-monitoring application having several tenants could include: a camera vendor OEM (for camera software updates), an AI model developer (for model management), and the city (for secure access to camera feeds and model inferences). 

SEC-TPM is integrated with NVIDIA JetPack 6.0 including microservices for Jetson, providing a complete set of device security functions and features, including secure boot and firmware updates, failure recovery, encryption, credentials management, and cloud integration.

“SecEdge has a unique solution that provides AI model protection from chip-to-cloud,” said Magic Pao, Associate Vice President of the Industrial Cloud & Video Group at Advantech, “Our industrial customers and partners can develop and deploy innovative edge AI systems knowing that their solution and intellectual property are safe.”

“SEC-TPM is a perfect fit for Advantech, a trusted provider of innovative products and solutions,” said Sami Nassar, President and Co-CEO at SecEdge. “We are excited about this first step in an exciting partnership in securing edge AI.”
