Abstract

The rapid spread of residential broadband connections and Internet-capable consumer devices in home networks has changed the landscape of Internet traffic. To gain a deep understanding of Internet traffic for home networks, this paper develops a traffic monitoring platform that collects and analyzes home network traffic via programmable home routers and traffic profiling servers. Using traffic data captured from real home networks, we present traffic characteristics in home networks, and then apply principal component analysis to uncover temporal correlations among application ports. To the best of our knowledge, this paper is the first study to characterize network traffic of Internet-capable devices from inside home networks.
