Abstract: Mobile user browsing internet is vulnerable to internet attacks. Security is the very important issue for any mobile user. Eventhough there are many security solutions to overcome internet attacks, these solutions may rely on human factors to achieve a good result against phishing websites, SSLStrip-based, Man-In-The-Middle attack and Spam detection. This paper presents a secure web referral service, which is called Secure Search Engine (SSE) for mobile devices. This method uses mobile cloud-based virtual computing and provides each user a Virtual Machine (VM) as a personal security proxy where all Web traffics are redirected through it. Inside the VM SSE uses web crawling technology with a set of checking services to validate IP addresses and certificate chains. Phishing Filter is used to check given URLs in a minimum execution time. This approach uses seperate private caches to protect user privacy and improve performance.
