“ Measurement and Analysis of IP networks ”

My main research subject is traffic classification. I have developped statistical methods to identify the application associated with a TCP connection based on information from the first packets. I am currently expanding this method to identify applications that are encrypted using SSL. I am also working on an implementation of this method. More information about this project here.
