AREA Points RFP for Analysis on Deployment of Wearable AR in Extremely Safe Company Environments

Up to now, AREA members have funded 11 AR research projects on a variety of well timed subjects important to the adoption of enterprise AR. Now the AREA is happy to announce a name for proposals for its 12th research project, which is able to study the panorama of cybersecurity threats and mitigation measures, suggest methods for decreasing assault surfaces, and develop operating code to allow AREA members to check SSO and safe knowledge retrieval utilizing wearable AR gadgets. Constructing on prior analysis, commissioned by the AREA in its first analysis undertaking in 2017, this undertaking will deal with subjects corresponding to:

  • Reveal per-app session authentication with trendy cloud or on-premises IT companies inside functions constructed with the Unity sport engine for AR platforms (e.g., HoloLens, iPhone, Magic Leap), with out using closed-source, third-party plugins
  • Reveal authentication performance by means of instance Unity undertaking(s) and companies surroundings (e.g., AWS), buildable for AR platforms
  • Reveal authentication from a number of customers for separate periods on a shared AR gadgets
  • Define framework and structure in authenticating periods inside Unity apps on AR platforms and the way it might differ from Home windows-based approaches
  • Methods to implement id gating and join with present enterprise IT safety techniques (e.g., Azure, AWS) in AR functions constructed with sport engines (e.g., Unity functions for HoloLens)
  • Mechanisms to maintain delicate proprietary knowledge protected from threat vectors when authoring or utilizing AR functions (e.g., destroying knowledge upon software exit and/or timeout)
  • Frameworks to successfully assess the sensible cyber risk of introducing new AR gadgets to a safe enterprise surroundings
  • STRETCH GOAL How federated id and Single Signal On (SSO) works within the context of AR
  • STRETCH GOAL: The applicability of present open authentication requirements to be used in AR within the enterprise
  • STRETCH GOAL: Evaluation of how smartcards work through USB-C adapter, retina scanning and Bluetooth keyboards can be utilized for username/passwords

This AREA analysis undertaking will produce: an up to date framework to know the areas of threat and potential affect distinctive to AR gadgets and AR software program, in order that correct mitigation measures will be designed, a call help instrument primarily based on the framework, code in a cloud surroundings for testing SSO and safe knowledge retrieval strategies, a niche evaluation that may be revealed to information future work in consensus-based SDOs specializing in safety protocols, an government abstract of the undertaking, and a member-exclusive webinar.

The AREA Analysis Committee price range for this undertaking is $15,000. Organizations thinking about conducting this analysis for the mounted price are invited to submit proposals. All proposals have to be submitted by 12 midday Japanese Daylight Time on twenty first March 2023.

Full data on the undertaking wants, desired outcomes and required elements of a profitable proposal, together with a submission type, will be discovered here.

In case you have any questions regarding this undertaking or the AREA Analysis Committee, please email the Research Committee.
