InPrivate Desktop for Windows 10
Microsoft is apparently developing a new security feature for Windows 10: "InPrivate Desktop," a sandbox for the secure and one-time execution of untrusted software. Officially, the software company has not confirmed the development of such a function, but there are clear indications in the feedback hub of the Windows Insider program, where, among other things, a pre-release version of the "InPrivate Desktop" was released.
Hence, it is a virtual machine for the one-time execution of an application; a kind of one-time sandbox, that opens with one click, runs an untrusted application, and closes with another click. The system requirements were 5 GB of hard disk space, 4 GB of RAM, two CPU cores and the BIOS-activated virtualization function for the CPU. Whether a Hyper-V installation is required is not known but likely.
According to the descriptions, the "InPrivate Desktop" shows clear parallels to Windows Defender Application Guard (WDAG), a security feature of Windows 10, that isolates suspected malware, downloaded via the browser, in a container.
It is not expected that the "InPrivate Desktop" will be included in the upcoming fall update of Windows 10, but probably only in one of the later versions of the Microsoft operating system and probably only as a security feature for Windows 10 Enterprise.
