About


Hey, Fellow Backers!

We are very proud to present to you - Quantum Browser.

Quantum Browser is a fully isolated virtual browser for desktop PC's, laptops, and smartphones, that will protect your anonymity, and prevent all forms of malware, ransomware and cyber attacks ever reaching your device or network.

Available for home users, small business, and enterprise, Quantum Browser is truly a comprehensive solution for everyone. You or your employees can browse the internet without fear - and with your help, we can create a community of users who value privacy and safety online.

Read on to find out more about us, our mission, and our ambitious project.

Hyperstarter.com Project of the Week!

"Relying on the government to protect your privacy is like asking a peeping Tom to install your window blinds." -  John Perry Barlow, Cyberlibertarian political activist 

The Future Threat

It all started with a computer forensic expert, as all good stories do. We wanted to start a cyber security company that would protect people well into the future. With the looming advent of quantum computing on the horizon, and the possibility of all current encryption standards being rendered useless, our future is full of uncertainty.

A solution needed to be developed that will protect everyone.

The Present Threat

Cyber attacks on home users, SMB's, and enterprises increase year on year. Ransomware and malware attacks have crippled billion dollar companies, and home users have lost data, privacy and their hard earned money to cyber criminals.

We understand that you want to protect yourself and your family from the ever present threat of hackers and cyber attacks. Quantum Browser, we hope, will be your first line of defense, and all you need to stay safe when browsing the internet.

So, taking the FUTURE and PRESENT threats into account, the mission was simple:

"Create a solution that will prevent all types of cyber attack, for families, small business and corporations. Further, develop quantum safe solutions that will protect users well into the future."

Prevention is the key. We have to accept that we will NEVER stop criminals from finding new ways to attack, but with the right tools - we CAN prevent them from ever happening.

"By making Quantum Browser public, and community-driven, we enable people to take control of their privacy, their security, and ultimately their freedom to browse the internet without fear." - Sean Chumura, CEO CybX Security LLC

My name is Sean Chumura. Dad, Grandad, and computer forensic expert.

Introducing Sean Chumura: Behind the scenes at CybX Security...

I am a former consultant for the FBI, a member of the HTCC, the Washington D.C. Law Enforcement Association's High Tech Crime Consortium group, as well as other task forces and associations. I am considered one of the foremost experts in the field of cyber security. Using my 25 years of working with federal, state and local governments, I formed CybX Security LLC to tackle cyber crime head on.

CybX Security's work on Quantum Browser began in January 2018. Initial work on the project was carried out making the HTTPV possible, and implementing CKM** technology to make an isolated browser "Quantum Safe". No other isolated browser in the world can offer this level of security.

It wasn't until mid 2019 when the decision was made to launch Quantum Browser as a community-driven project, and raise mass awareness through crowdfunding on Kickstarter.

It means the world to me and my team that we will be able to build this project alongside the people who need it most. I look forward to working with you to bring Quantum Browser and many other projects to those who need it most.

Development Stage

We have a fully featured, working "developers" version of Quantum Browser.

We are testing with a closed beta group located in USA, Europe, China, and Russia, and all results have been positive. We are constantly fine-tuning the processes, and progress is made daily. The next stages of development will be centered on

  • Making a commercially viable browser add-on/extension
  • More aggressive penetration testing
  • Integrity assurance
  • Certification for industry standards

To sum it up, Quantum Browser is almost ready for launch. To get to the finish line, we need a little more time, a little more funding, and a user-base ready for deployment. The pledges you make will push us beyond our goals, and enable us to get Quantum Browser out to the masses, and into the hands of people who need it most.

A Privacy Focused Community

Quantum Browser will be community driven in many ways. We want our backers to be part of the process - and we don't just mean financially.

CAST - Cyber Awareness & Security Training: A security & privacy focused community will be formed within our CIWIX initiative. Set to launch in June 2020, CAST will provide cyber security training online and at events around the USA. Members will have access to training on topics such as cyber attack action plans, ransomware protocol, data breach action plans, and other cyber security related scenario action plans, as well as detailed steps in preventing data breaches and cyber attacks. We believe awareness and education is paramount, and we have already begun building the course material for future members. CAST memberships will be available to the public at the following price: $79/month, $399/6 Months and $500/12 Months. PLEDGES OF $10+ WILL GET FREE MEMBERSHIP TO CAST!

Our Non-Profit 501c3 Work

As a cyber security company, we know we have a responsibility to help those that are vulnerable in our society. There is a significant number of senior citizens and youths who will benefit from using Quantum Browser to stay safe online, because they are most at risk.

Sadly, this seems to be a "forgotten" demographic in our industry, as companies focus on selling commercial licenses. For example, we aim to assist various charities and resources in domestic violence cases, where a person may require anonymous and private internet access that leaves no trace of browser history.

Lack of education in cyber security is also something we will address with our non-profit 501c3 work. Our community driven project will reach, educate and protect those who are easy prey for cyber attackers.

This Kickstarter, and your assistance, will enable us to make all of our non-profit work happen.

So, as you can see, this Kickstarter is just the beginning of the story.

" The right to be let alone is indeed the beginning of all freedom." - William O. Douglas,  Former Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States 

If there is something you don't see here, or you need clarification on Quantum Browser's features, please do comment, and one of our team will update the Kickstarter story, and respond to your comment as soon as possible. Thanks so much for your interest in our project!

  • Quantum Browser is a secure, isolated virtual browser you can access via browser add-on/extension on a computer or mobile device. Your session exists only on our servers in real-time, and is then destroyed once you exit.
  • No code or scripts ever reach your device or network.
  •  Nothing is ever downloaded or uploaded.
  • You have FULL anonymity. No website ever connects to your device. No history is stored.
  • No malware, ransomware or virus threat can ever reach your device or network.
  • You access Quantum Browser using a browser extension (in Chrome or Firefox for example), and the integration is seamless.
  • A virtual view, i.e. a live feed of the isolated browser content is sent to your device via the most secure connection in existence. The only content you see is in the form of pixels.

Here is a basic example of isolated browsing:-


The only connection to the websites on the internet is the isolated virtual browser. You are securely connected to our servers, simply controlling the virtual browser's functions. 

What you are seeing are a series of real time screenshots - or a 'live feed' - of what the isolated browser contains.

Everything you would normally do with your browser, you can do with the isolated browser. The difference is, no code or scripts ever run on your device. The content is delivered to your screen as pixels.

How A Quantum Browser Session Works - In Detail

A diagram of an isolated browser session:-

  •  CONNECTION/AUTHENTICATION: The browser extension/plugin you use to log in and access Quantum Browser, connecting to a CybX Security server using quantum safe CKM authentication** 
  •  LIVE FEED: You connect using HTTPV - a secure protocol that enables you to see a live feed of whatever is on the virtual browser screen
  •  CKM TUNNELING: The entire process happens through quantum safe CKM secure tunneling** 
  •  ZERO CONTENT: No scripts, videos, CSS, embeds, HTML code or anything else ever runs on your browser/device - you just see a live feed of the virtual browser
  •  ISOLATED VIRTUAL BROWSING: Anything that happens during the browser session happens on our server, and never reaches your actual connection - it happens virtually
  •  SESSION PRIVACY: When you exit and log off, your entire session is destroyed. We hold no record of the browser session, and nothing is ever stored on our servers.

**CKM -  Constructive Key Management (CKM) is a quantum safe cryptographic system that constructs keys as needed and immediately destroys them after each use. This method provides greater security than other systems that store keys in public or private directories, or that include the key with the encrypted information. Quantum Browser uses CKM for authentication during your session.

No other isolated browser in the world offers this level of security.

We feel that anonymous browsing is a term that is thrown around too often. The by-lines and sales pages that pronounce VPN's, proxies and relay based browsers as "completely anonymous" are sometimes misleading.

An isolated session as robust as Quantum Browser is truly anonymous, and your privacy is assured. We store no records about the session, and the history of your browsing is destroyed once you exit. No data is stored before, during or after your session.

When you browse a website using Quantum Browser, you use our servers and our IP addresses when using the internet. Nothing is traced back to you.

As Quantum Browser uses CKM tunneling to send keystrokes to the virtual browser, no data in transit is ever in danger of being hacked, spied on, nor is it vulnerable to 'man-in-the-middle' attacks.

“It is not so much our friends' help that helps us, as the confidence of their help" - Epicurus, Philosopher

The Money

The pledge money will be used to complete the development of Quantum Browser, and set up further instances of our system around the world. This will ensure your connection is fast and smooth, no matter where you live.

For backers whose pledges include a subscription, the cloud server cost of your usage will be covered for the duration of your subscription length.

The Community

Education will be the primary goal, and CAST will contain all the latest information and news about cyber threat analysis, prevention & response (including a dedicated Quantum Browser forum). Whether you are a home user or a small business, CAST will be a valuable education source that will ensure you know how to protect and respond to any level of cyber attack or threat. Within the portal, you will have access to a community forum to share knowledge and help other members.

The Support

Knowing that there are people out there backing us and encouraging us is amazing. We are doing this for you, and every member of our team is so grateful for your participation.

We can't wait for launch day, when our email drops in your inbox... and you can start browsing the internet privately, anonymously, and above all safely with Quantum Browser.

Launch!

We aim to go live with Quantum Browser in the first half of December 2019.

CAST (Cyber Awareness & Security Training) launches June 2020.

Risks and challenges

We have a solid plan in place to make Quantum Browser available to the public and to commercial customers. The risks we face are not uncommon in the technology development arena; coding and testing alone presents unique and challenging obstacles. We feel we have the team we need to make it happen, but we also acknowledge that should delays be possible, we will keep our backers and supporters well informed to keep our relationship strong.
