Abstract

The diversity and fast growth of Internet traffic volume are highly influenced by mobile and computer applications being developed. Moreover, the developed applications are too dynamic to be identified and monitored by network administrators. Several approaches have been proposed to identify network applications, however, are still not robust enough to identify modern applications. This paper proposes both, TSA (Traffic collection, Signature generation and Applications identification) system and a derived algorithm so called CSP (Contiguous Sequential Patterns) to identify applications for management and security in IP networks. The major focus of this paper is the CSP algorithm which is automated in two modules (Signature generation and Applications identification) of the proposed system. The proposed CSP algorithm generates DNA-like unique signatures capable of identifying applications and their individual services. In this paper, we show that the algorithm is suitable for generating efficient signatures to identify applications and application services in high accuracy.
