Radio Frequency (RF) fingerprinting aims to de- velop a unique identity for a wireless device that can be used in the same way a biological fingerprint operates, to improve the security and privacy of wireless communication. This is in contrast to the traditional bit-level algorithmic approaches to securing transmissions. In this letter, we introduce RF finger- printing, and a comprehensive overview of research challenges and opportunities associated with its deployment in low-cost portable mobile devices.
