I am currently studying ways to fingerprint Wi-Fi devices based on their physical characteristics and I was struck by a question after reading Section B of this paper http://www.ccs-labs.org/bib/bloessl2013ofdm-tr/bloessl2013ofdm-tr.pdf

I wondered whether the auto-correlation of a frame transient over time is based on the physical characteristics of Wi-Fi devices (e.g., hardware imperfections). Also, I wondered whether the auto-correlation of a frame transient over time could eventually be used for fingerprinting a Wi-Fi device.

I looked into the current literature, but found no attempts at fingerprinting Wi-Fi devices with the auto-correlation of a frame transient.

More INFO: I believe that theoretically this would be possible. But in practice would the auto-correlation of devices with the same or different chipset be be sufficiently different from each other to be able to identify and fingerprint them?
