NVIDIA is seeking a Senior Hardware Security engineer to architect, design, validate, and guide implementation of HW security for its core GPU products. You are expected to take a strong, hands-on approach to ensuring secure development and engineering practices across multiple internal teams by leading by example. Persons in this role will help reduce risk, threats, and vulnerabilities with a focus on hardware and firmware layers; including considerations for safely scaling up GPUs in data center environments.
What you'll be doing:
- Collaborate between multiple business units and development groups to ensure robust, secure service posture from design to implementation in multiple products
- Perform security reviews of firmware and hardware designs and assist others to ensure quality and robustness of our products.
- Recommend best practices for secure service development driving continuous improvement in the engineering organization. Including mentoring, developing and delivering training materials, producing frameworks to reduce best practice patterns to application for use in production efforts.
- Define architectural and micro-architectural details for features that improve security of our GPUs
- Drive implementation and verification of hardware features that improve security of our GPUs
- You will collaborate to develop a long-term security roadmap for our products to ensure suitability for the markets we serve.
What we need to see:
- A BS or MS degree in Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering or related degree.
- Experience or interest in hardware security.
- 8+ years of relevant hardware development experience
- Deep understanding of processor architectures (GPU is a plus), caches and memory systems
- Proficiency in Verilog RTL coding and scripting languages, such as: Perl, Python and Make etc.
- A working understanding of floor-planning, ASIC physical design, VLSI and DFT
- You can demonstrate a hands on technical background; excellent C programming and low-level firmware experience.
- Strong communication skills are required along with the ability to work in a dynamic product oriented team.
Ways to stand out from the crowd:
- Familiarity with kernel level security concepts.
- Experience with security testing techniques, threat modeling, fuzzing, negative testing and other techniques.
- Experience with micro architectural attacks (side channels, fault injection, etc)
- Experience with HW level applications of cryptography; secure boot, key management, etc
