Internet traffic classification demo

Unfortuntely our sysadmins are so stupid they keep deleting PhD webpages as soon as they graduate. This means that the following links are not longer working. I keep this page because it worked when we made it, though sysadmins work to systematically break our work in novel and creative ways, and I'm now to tired to make sure all we did still work 5 years later.

Welcome! This page hosts the demo software we presented at the demo session at IEEE Globecom 2010. This application shows the Kiss and Abacus classifiers (see references at the bottom of this page) at work, showing how they extract the features from the traffic and allowing to compare both the classification accuracy and the resource consumption of the two algorithms.
