A Web browser is probably the main attack vector used by hackers. Solutions to browser's security are difficult to foresee, due to the influence of user-behaviour. In this paper, we show how to tackle the issue of securing web browsers introducing a Secure Cloud Browser (SCB) architecture. The rationale behind the SCB is to reduce browser vulnerability by transporting it to a remote secure environment, making it ephemeral and renovating it in a manner that is transparent to the user. Our scheme allows the user to browse a web application while source code is remotely interpreted. Further, obfuscation techniques are used to increase the lifetime of a browser session. Details and discussion over the SCB architecture are reported, while its implementation and assessment is undergoing work. © 2012 IEEE.
