Data Mining and Machine Learning for Analysis of Network Traffic
Collection and analysis of data from deployed networks is essential for understanding modern communication networks. Data mining and statistical analysis of network data are often employed to determine traffic loads, analyze patterns of users’ behavior, and predict future network traffic while various machine learning techniques proved valuable for predicting anomalous traffic behavior. In described case studies, traffic traces collected from various deployed networks and the Internet are used to characterize and model network traffic, analyze Internet topologies, and classify network anomalies.
