Classifying Ethernet Data Packets Based on Raw Bit Patterns
Currently most operations on network data packets are controlled by the applicable protocols such as TCP/IP. However, there is scope to examine and classify the data without resorting to processing through a protocol stack. To do this, use can be made of the complex and sophisticated algorithms developed for the analysis of biological and genomics data. This makes use of similarities in the way information is stored in biological structures and network data traffic.
