"Fingerprinting" of Mobile Devices

A team led by TRUST researcher and Stanford computer science Professor Dan Boneh has identified a method of effectively "fingerprinting" mobile devices. By exploiting tiny errors in each device's sensors, including the accelerometer and microphone, the team showed how their results could be used to uniquely identify a mobile device.
