Current Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) technology involves two types of physical devices: tags and reader. The reader combines in a single physical device transmission (to the tags) and reception (from the tags) functions. In this paper we discuss an alternative approach, where receive functions are performed by a separate device called "RFID(More)
Third-generation cellular networks are exposed to novel forms of denial-of-service attacks that only recently have started to be recognized and documented by the scientific community. In this contribution, we review some recently published attack models specific for cellular networks. We review them collectively in order to identify the main system-design(More)
In this work we present a novel scheme for statistical-based anomaly detection in 3G cellular networks. The traffic data collected by a passive monitoring system are reduced to a set of per-mobile user counters, from which time-series of unidimensional feature distributions are derived. An example of feature is the number of TCP SYN packets seen in uplink(More)
We consider the problem of RSS-based indoor localization with Maximum Likelihood (ML) estimation techniques in low-cost Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN). In the perspective of fully automated methods, we consider the problem of channel and position estimation as coupled problems. We compare via simulations the approaches of separate and joint ML estimation,(More)
This paper presents an open source Software-Defined Radio tool compliant with IEEE 802.15.4, which incorporates features for the collection and processing of Received Signal Strength (RSS) measurements from incoming packets. The implementation includes RSS Indicator (RSSI) feature, data handling and application code for channel estimation, ranging and(More)
