Can you shift your presence on the Internet in time to create a process firewall against hacking?  For a company the company would never put its current web pages on the Internet.  The master copy would always update the public copy.  The public copy could be a day old, a week, or a month.  The company would have a periodic update scheme to destroy the current public copy, open a Virtual machine and copy the master to the virtual machine, from a non-Internet connected server. Use the virtual machine to replace the destroyed public copy.  Then destroy the virtual machine. This would drastically reduce the damage to web pages.  Then users could have a similar scheme to protect themselves from online malware and spam.  Users could have a public face and a private face.  The private face could only be accessed by strict authentication protocols.  A user could filter 99% of all unwanted email.  The authentication process could utilize Skype to begin the trusted relationship.  Using a Skype session between two users they could transfer authentication schemes in the secure video session, with authentication passed in a background communications scheme imbedded in the Skype session.  Without being authorized by the user a website or email could not penetrate to the users accounts.

Can we use temporal normalcy as a process defense against DDOS?  There is a finite number of router hubs connected to a server.  If we had a small database at the router hub level that contained the normal data transfer rates for each of a servers pages as well as the number of attempts per external user for a time segment, then we could measure Internet traffic and correct for abnormalities.  If a particular web page was receiving an abnormal number of hits then that web page could be stopped from being served until the count of hits reduced to the normal temporal trend level.  Also if a particular external user is hitting the server an abnormal number of times, that user's requests could also be suspended at the router level. 

As for SQL Injection attacks could the server defend against this by arbitrarily having the server itself injecting SQL code in its own data fields in multiple parts of the data entry thereby disrupting the malicious coded intent.
