Remoting to a secure computer?

By MrEdxoxo ·
If I were to set up a secure computer as defined in the article, could I remote to that computer from my suspect PC and run the transaction on the clean remote machine from the suspect PC?

May I have another? To keep the clean PC clean, reconstruct the PC from an image every time it is shut down. Malware would have to reinfect the PC every session. I have heard this process as a standard for some laptop brand setups. Kinda like the Dell Restore process.

You'll have to provide a Link tot he Article you are talking about here as it's impossible to say one way or the other about your first question.

Also what do you mean by

May I have another?

Another what?

what I can comment on is this however To keep the clean PC clean, reconstruct the PC from an image every time it is shut down

This is a more or less simple In Comparison to your other questions thing to do. All you need do is run a Live Linux and boot the computer off it on every restart. You don't need a HDD in the computer to do this so it would remain clean and uninfected after the Image is made.

You could also use something like Bart PE if you wanted to do this with a Windows Platform.
