SecEdge And AAEON Expand Partnership With AI Model Protection On NVIDIA Jetson-Powered Platforms


Digital security leader SecEdge has announced that AAEON, an industry leader in embedded Edge AI systems, will offer its SEC-TPM Edge AI security solution on the AAEON BOXER platform, a line of fanless embedded AI systems. SEC-TPM is a firmware TPM (fTPM) solution coupled with a secure provisioning service that ensures AI model security while reducing BOM cost.

With the expansion of this strategic partnership, AAEON’s line of embedded Box PCs, powered by NVIDIA® Jetson™ system-on-modules, will be available pre-configured with SecEdge Edge AI security software.

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, a fTPM, eliminating the need for a discrete TPM chip or secure manufacturing facility.

Multi-Tenant Secure Device Access
The solution enables secure connectivity across applications with independent IPSec tunnels, e.g., a traffic monitoring application with several tenants: 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, which includes 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.

“Security is critical as Edge AI deployments accelerate,” said Alex Hsueh, Associate Vice President at AAEON. “SecEdge’s unique device-to-cloud solution enables our customers to protect AI models in an efficient and cost-effective way.”

“Our long-standing partnership with AAEON is leading the market with an out-of-the-box security solution for Edge AI,” said Sami Nassar, President and Co-CEO at SecEdge.
