Extended Reality (XR) devices are gaining interest in a wide range of areas including games, social interaction, design and health-care. The potential security concerns that affect XR platforms have received limited research attention. This research investigates security threats posed to XR devices and their users by examining how intrusion detection systems can be adapted to prevent, detect and mitigate socio-technical attacks, ranging from psychological harm, identify theft, social-engineering and system misbehaviour and failures. The goal of this research is to propose requirements that could go into standardisation of XR devices and techniques to improve their robustness against attacks.
