Traffic flows are set of packets transferring between a client and a server with the same set of source and destination IP and port numbers. Traffic classification is referred to as the task of categorizing traffic flows into application-aware classes such as chats, streaming, VoIP, etc. Classification can be used for several purposes including policy enforcement and control or QoS management. In this paper, we introduce a novel end-to-end traffic classification method to distinguish between…

Data representation for CNN based internet traffic classification: a comparative study

TLDR
This paper analyzes two methods of data representation for DL-based classification: a raw packet-based representation and a quasi-raw flow- based representation, showing that raw data representation suffers from traffic anonymization and the fact that many packet fields are data-dependent.
