Peer-to-Peer botnets are legally taken by botmasters for the quick recovery against taking down efforts of the system. But it’s a harder one for the botmasters, because modern botnets are hidden and performing malicious activities it makes the process inefficient. Additionally because of sudden growth of the network traffic there was an ability to enlarge the malicious activities of the system. In this paper, the hidden P2P botnets are identified using botmasters. Our system first identifies the system which is all engaged in p2p communications. Then it analysis the behavioral characteristics of identifying P2P and it finds the difference between P2P botnet traffic and legal p2p traffic. By doing this our scalability of our system increases. Alternatively it also increases the detection accuracy as well as scalability of our system.
