GTVS: Boosting the Collection of Application Traffic Ground Truth
Source: University of Cambridge
Interesting research in the areas of traffic classification, network monitoring, and application-oriented analysis can not proceed without real traffic traces, labeled with actual application information. However, hand-labeled traces are an extremely valuable but scarce resource in the traffic monitoring and analysis community, as a result of both privacy concerns and technical difficulties. Hardly any possibility exists for pay-loaded data to be released, while the impossibility of obtaining certain ground-truth application information from non-pay-loaded data has severely constrained the value of anonymized public traces.
