A survey of problems and solution methods in network traffic classification
The paper discusses the problem of network traffic classification: the characteristics that are used to solve it, existing approaches and their limitations. Applied tasks that require classification are listed, as well as additional requirements that arise from the main problem. Properties of network traffic that root in communication medium specifics are analyzed as well as the technology being used where they influence the classification process. Relevant directions in current approaches to analysis and the reasons for their development are discussed.
