PTF: Passive Temporal Fingerprinting


We describe in this paper a tool named PTF (Passive and Temporal Fingerprinting) for fingerprinting network devices. The objective of device fingerprinting is to uniquely identify device types by looking at captured traffic from devices imple- menting that protocol. The main novelty of our approach consists in leveraging both temporal and behavioral features for this purpose. The key contribution is a fingerprinting scheme, where individual fingerprints are represented by tree-based temporal finite state machines. We have developed a fingerprinting scheme that leverages supervised learning approaches based on support vector machines for this purpose.
