Wireless security through RF fingerprinting

  title={Wireless security through RF fingerprinting},
  author={Oktay Ureten and Nur Serinken},
  journal={Canadian Journal of Electrical and Computer Engineering},
The process of identifying radio transmitters by examining their unique transient characteristics at the beginning of transmission is called RF fingerprinting. The security of wireless networks can be enhanced by challenging a user to prove its identity if the fingerprint of a network device is unidentified or deemed to be a threat. This paper addresses the problem of identifying an individual node in a wireless network by means of its RF fingerprint. A complete identification system is… CONTINUE READING
