Security and Privacy in Metaverse (SPM)
The metaverse is a virtual living space that integrates a variety of existing technologies with the aim of being able to create digital world that simulates real world situations without being limited by real world constraints. This gives plenty of possibilities and options that would not be possible without metaverse paradigms. For example, in the field of gaming, the metaverse can provide an immersive gaming experience. In education, classrooms can be everywhere and are no longer limited by physical constraints. With the metaverse, travel enthusiasts can enjoy the pleasure of travel without leaving their homes.
More concretely, the metaverse builds an economic system based on blockchain, provides an immersive experience based on interactive technology like Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR), generates a mirror image of the real world based on digital twins, implements data computing, data storage, processing and sharing based on cloud computing, and realizes interconnected intelligence based on AI and IoT technology.
However, as this new digital space takes shape to transition from our physical world to the digital realm, domain experts will be concerned with the emerging of security and privacy risks in the metaverse context, which will include new forms of threats.
New approaches to guard against these new threats must be developed as soon as possible, rather than waiting until the problems are already embedded in the ecosystem, which will have serious consequences for the social acceptability and future development of the metaverse.
This track calls for new, original and high-quality scientific contributions to recent advances in identity management, security and privacy in the metaverse.
