Physical-layer identification of wireless devices, commonly referred to as Radio Frequency (RF) fingerprinting, is the process of identifying a device based on transmission imperfections exhibited by its radio transceiver. It can be used to improve access control in wireless networks, revent device cloning and complement message authentication protocols.(More)
Today’s communication systems are often vulnerable to wormhole or relaying attacks, leading to severe security problems. Distance Bounding (DB) protocols are authentication protocols designed to protect against these attacks. They determine an upper bound on the physical distance between two communication parties — the verifier V (e.g. a door requiring an(More)
Distance bounding protocols enable one device (the verifier) to securely establish an upper bound on its distance to another device (the prover). These protocols can be used for secure location verification and detection of relay attacks, even in presence of strong attackers. The <i>rapid-bit-exchange</i> is the core of distance bounding protocols---the(More)
Future wireless networks based on Ultra-Wideband (UWB) will offer localization capabilities with centimeter accuracy. We propose to use this inherently obtainable location knowledge to adapt the transceiver to the multipath channel conditions. This saves overhead for channel estimation and dissemination and enables low cost, low complexity and low power(More)
