Abstract

The peer-to-peer (P2P) technology has been well developed over the Internet. BitTorrent (BT) is one of the most popular P2P sharing protocols; BT network traffic detection has become increasingly important and yet technically challenging. In this paper we propose a new detection method that is based on an intelligent combination of Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) and Deep Flow Inspection (DFI) with semi-supervised learning. Comparing with existing methods, the new method has achieved equally high accuracy with shorter classification time. We believe that this highly effective BT detection method is not only significant to the BT community, but is also very useful to other groups that need to efficiently and correctly detect single applications.
