Internet Traffic Measurements
Institut National de Recherche en Informatique et en Automatique, FRANCE.
Schedule: May 16, 2017 (Tuesday) – 4pm to 5pm.
Local: Salão Karajás.
Abstract: This talk will introduce methods to measure Internet traffic. The observation of Internet traffic is key for network engineering, for anomaly and intrusion detection, as well as for the analysis of Internet application performance. We will first cover methods to measure traffic at different granularities: IP-level packets, flows, and interface. Then, we will discuss how to use traffic measurements to learn the traffic matrix. Finally, we will discuss the privacy issues related to traffic measurements and techniques to anonymize packet traces.
