This is a review paper of Network Traffic Classification Techniques. The survey looks at network traffic classification methods used by researchers as well as emerging research into the application of Machine Learning (ML) techniques to IP traffic classification. Current popular methods such as port numbers and payloadbased identification exhibit a number of shortfalls, an alternative is to use ML techniques. It is also required to detect network applications based on flow statistics. The paper also take a review of clustering algorithms as well as various important approaches to semi-supervised learning The survey concludes that the K-means is a fastest algorithm as compared to DBSCAN and AutoClass. Another conclusion is the semi-supervised approach is a best classification approach for network traffic classification as compared with other techniques.
