Google this week will provide technical details of its new Titan computer chip, a security feature for its cloud computing network.
Titan has been intalled in Google's computer servers and network cards that populate its massive data centers that power the company's cloud services.
The chip scans hardware to ensure it has not been tampered with, according to Neal Mueller, head of infrastructure product marketing for Google Cloud Platform. If anything has been changed, Titan chip will prevent the machine from booting.
Google is hoping Titan will help it carve out a bigger piece of the worldwide cloud computing market, which is dominated by Amazon.com and Microsoft.
Google plans to disclose Titan's technical details in a blog post on Thursday.
