Abstract

In recent years, augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR) technologies have advanced significantly, becoming more accessible and practical for various industries and applications. However, new digital threats have emerged as AR/VR usage increases such as data exchange in shared spaces. Prior research on graphical authentication has proposed the Things scheme [21] and we plan to adapt this in the AR/VR domain. The scheme in combination with the private display available to users in AR/VR is resistant to shoulder-surfing attacks. Inspired by the work of Duezguen et al. [12], who conducted a user study applying the Things scheme in AR with 16 users in Germany, this short paper proposes a replication study that will implement the Things scheme in both AR and VR. We will recruit eligible participants for the in-lab study which will involve the use of HoloLens and Valve Index to test the Things scheme and we will evaluate the effectiveness of the scheme, the interaction modes for usability, and users' risk perception concerning security. Additionally, we will conduct a comparative analysis of cross-cultural disparities between the participants in Germany and in the USA.
