Remembering what we like: Toward an agent-based model of Web traffic [article]

Bruno Goncalves, Mark R. Meiss, Jose J. Ramasco, Alessandro Flammini, Filippo Menczer
2009 arXiv   pre-print
Analysis of aggregate Web traffic has shown that PageRank is a poor model of how people actually navigate the Web.  ...  Using the empirical traffic patterns generated by a thousand users over the course of two months, we characterize the properties of Web traffic that cannot be reproduced by Markovian models, in which destinations  ...  This work was produced in part with support from the Institute for Information Infrastructure Protection research program.  ...

Towards understanding upstream Web traffic

David Gugelmann, Bernhard Ager, Vincent Lenders, Markus Happe
2015 2015 International Wireless Communications and Mobile Computing Conference (IWCMC)  
We argue that upstream traffic deserves the same or even higher attention since data flows towards Web servers generally entail privacy-relevant user information.  ...  While downstream Web traffic has been studied in detail, upstream Web traffic has not received much attention yet.  ...  In the previous Web model, the network traffic was highly asymmetric with most of the data flowing to the users.  ...

Towards Classifying Third-Party Web Services at Scale

David Gugelmann, Bernhard Ager, Vincent Lenders
2014 Proceedings of the 2014 CoNEXT on Student Workshop - CoNEXT Student Workshop '14  
In this work we develop and evaluate a set of features for identifying tracking services in HTTP traffic.  ...  Many people are concerned about privacy in the Web. This has resulted in the emergence of various tools and suggestions for blocking tracking services.  ...  We additionally include content-centric Web sites for comparison (i.e., services with no or only little personalized content, such as news sites and Wikipedia).  ...

Privacy Vulnerabilities in Encrypted HTTP Streams [chapter]

George Dean Bissias, Marc Liberatore, David Jensen, Brian Neil Levine
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In our evaluations using real traffic, we find that many web sites are subject to this attack. With a training period of 24 hours and a 1 hour delay afterwards, the attack achieves only 23% accuracy.  ...  Accordingly, against 25 such sites, the attack achieves 40% accuracy; with three guesses, the attack achieves 100% accuracy for our data.  ...  In this paper, we show that an encrypted connection is not sufficient for removing traffic patterns that often reveal the web site that a user is visiting.  ...
