Motivated by the goal of detecting intrusions in (known) applications when their traffic exhibits anomalies, this paper surveys traffic classification methodologies, within a taxonomy framework, for managing applications' networking profiles. The key requirements are discussed for a practical solution and then the referred methodologies are assessed in terms of their capabilities, limitations and challenges for being used as a part of this solution. The approaches based on “multiple sub-flows” have shown the potential for building a robust and practical per-application profile. An overview of a blend of real-time approaches is also described.
