There is an essential need for new methods to investigate, with a proper level of identification, the increasing number of HTTPS traffic that may hold security breaches. In fact, although many approaches detect the(More)
Recent surveys show that the proportion of encrypted web traffic is quickly increasing. On one side, it provides users with essential properties of security and privacy, but on the other side, it raises important challenges and issues for organizations, related to the security monitoring of encrypted traffic (filtering, anomaly detection, etc.).
