P2P applications for file-sharing and video streaming have become tremendously popular in recent years, and it is now accounting for a significant share of the total network traffic. As P2P applications nowadays tend to use arbitrary ports to camouflage their communications, traditional methods like port-based identification have become highly inaccurate. In this paper, we propose a measurement system to detect and measure the real-time P2P traffic more reliably. The measurement methodology is based on using application level signatures implemented by netfilter extension as well as packet classifier. We further present the results from a P2P traffic analysis at a campus network, which show that this P2P traffic measurement system can provide the performance and scalability required for practical applications.
