     Authentication of Wireless Devices Using Radio Frequencey Fingerprinting

     1) Establishment of the Infrastructure (by October 31, 2003)
          - acquisition of additional units of Bluetooth and 802.11b devices

 2) Charaterization and Classification of Transceiverprint

Time Frame
1. Create different profiles using amplitude, phase and frequencey, as deemed
    appropriate for each transceiver.
2. Establish the degree of consistency and variance for a given make and

Deliverable: Profiles Document
Oct-Dec. 2003
3. Analyze current approaches and implement those which are appropriate

Deliverable: Analysis Document
Jan-March 2004
4. Endeavor to establish the DNA strand for a transceiver and test its accuracy using an appropriate classification tool.

Deliverable: Description of the DNA strand
Jan-March 2004

     3) Development and Simulation of New Authentication Protocol
