Fingerprinting is an important technique for identifying and characterizing devices on a network in a manner that is resistant to spoofing. Current works describe methods which are limited to identifying one particular component of a device. This paper begins to look at ways in which multiple disparate, but complementary, approaches can be used concurrently to develop a more complete hardware and software profile of network devices and their capabilities. Doing so is particularly important in heterogeneous Internet of Things networks. In this paper we propose a method for synthesizing existing fingerprinting methods based on existing procols and commonly available equipment to create a single consistent, validated, and spoof-resistant profile of network devices. Furthermore, we present and describe the architecture of a prototype system we have constructed which will be used for further study and future work.
