High Level Internet Scale Traffic Visualization Using Hilbert Curve Mapping

Abstract

A high level analysis tool was developed for aiding in the analysis of large volumes of network telescope traffic, and in particular the comparisons of data collected from multiple telescope sources. Providing a visual means for the evaluation of worm propagation algorithms has also been achieved. By using a Hilbert curve as a means of ordering points within the visualization space, the concept of nearness between numerically sequential network blocks was preserved. The design premise and initial results obtained using the tool developed are discussed, and a number of future extensions proposed.
