Especially with the rise of AI/ML, graphics processing units (GPUs) are becoming increasingly important in personal and enterprise computing. As a result, GPU hardware and software security has never been more important. This paper will focus on the hardware security of the NVIDIA Jetson Nano’s GPU. Because high clock frequency has been known to induce faults in computer systems, this paper will serve as a guide supplement explaining how to overclock the NVIDIA Jetson Nano’s CPU and GPU. This will provide an attack environment for future security researchers. The viability of future NVIDIA Jetson Nano hardware security research will be addressed. Finally, this report will include a recommendation for a discrete graphics card to purchase, providing another avenue for GPU hardware security research.
