Cocktail Method for BitTorrent Traffic Identification in Real Time
Source: Academy Publisher
Peer-To-Peer (P2P) applications generate a large volume of traffic and seriously affect quality of normal network services. Accurate identification of P2P traffic is especially important for network management. The simplest method is based on port mapping. But dynamic port technique makes it ineffective. Signature-based approach is useless when facing encrypted traffic. Recently, some approaches use more complex machine learning and data mining algorithms relying on flow statistics or host behaviors. Due to the sophisticated algorithms, they need a time-consuming process for training or calculating, they can hardly be used in real-time identification.
