General computing with Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) has taken off the last few years because of their unique ability to perform parallel calculations very efficiently. More developers have started to take advantage of this processor to improve software performance. Similarly, security developers have considered using the GPU to offload calculations as a way to improve the speed and robustness of security software. In this thesis, I outline reasons why this process might not necessarily be secure and provide experiments I have performed to find security flaws in GPU offloading.
