Abstract
The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of protecting DoD and civilian (ie dual purpose) computer networks and devices from web-borne malware using a remote browsing technique in conjunction with other malware blocking tools. The method coined CyQ complete defense promises a revolutionary new system for preventing nearly all web-borne malware from infecting client computers.CyQ is a set of malware-defeating tools built around an AFRL inspired remote browsing technique called Web Malware blocking through parallel resource rendering, which we rename as; Web Isolation Technology (WIT).A recent internet security report stated:30% of malware attacks are zero-day exploits.A zero-day attack is a previously unknown computer virus.JavaScript is a popular malware delivery and obfuscation mechanism with a rise in malicious JavaScript, both in email and over the web.Most network attacks were aimed at web services and browsers, with 73 percent of the top attacks targeting web browsers in drive-by download attacks.All of the top ten exploits were web-based attacks.If this one cyber defense mechanism was in place, 73% of attacks on DoD and commercial networks could be prevented.
