Abstract:

The explosive growth of the World Wide Web (WWW) in recent years has caused a significant shift in the Internet traffic. Web browsing is the most well-known and popular activity with increasing share in inter-domain traffic. This popularity is mainly due to video on the web. The combination of TCP/HTTP protocols on web traffic carries different types of information. Analyzing the termination of TCP connections give an indication to extract user behavior. In this thesis work, systematic tests are performed to investigate the generation of TCP resets in the case of web-based video streaming on smart phones. The aim is to differentiate between the user generated resets from the client side resets. Since the criterion presented in [8] do not identify the user-generated resets for video content on the web, an attempt has been made to propose an improved criterion based on our testing that produces more precise results.
