Impersonation attacks in wireless and mobile networks by professional criminal groups are becoming more sophisticated. We confirm with simple risk analysis that impersonation attacks offer attractive incentives to malicious criminals and should therefore be given highest priority in research studies. We also survey our recent investigations on Radio Frequency Fingerprinting and User Mobility Profiles and discuss details of our methodologies for building enhanced intrusion detection systems for future wireless and mobile networks.
