Security for Metaverse and Metaverse for Security

Metaverse has the capability to transmute every industry through virtual experiences. Metaverse has built-in security but still needs some external security mechanisms due to vulnerabilities and threats. The multi-dimensional nature of security threats has compelled security analysts and professionals to use Metaverse technologies for analyzing and mitigating cyber risks. However, the intruders may use Metaverse for offensive purposes to make defense against attacks harder. Therefore, we need a more sophisticated and secure metaverse. Conversely, we need various security techniques to safeguard the metaverse from interference, compromise, or misuse.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Usable security for and using AR/MR/XR/VR
  • Empirical studies of existing metaverse technologies and platforms
  • The future of advertising in AR/MR/XR/VR
  • Security and privacy of healthcare technologies
  • Applications of AR/MR/XR/VR in different industries
