There needs to be a reliable way to protect the client browser from any malicious code that is hosted on many websites. The technology chronicled in this report is called Remote Web Rendering. It takes the approach to remotely render the Web page such that it can be completely re-written before it gets to the browser. The rewritten code will only pass on known good code to the browser. Remote Web Rendering is a simple but profound concept that is capable of completely insulating users from both known and unknown web based threats. The power of Remote Web Rendering is that it does not rely on code analysis methods to detect malicious code. It implements protection against all incoming code regardless of whether signature analysis methods can detect if it is malicious.
