P2P brummt immer noch

First, we measure traffic of all known popular P2P protocols. Second, we go beyond the “known port” limitation by reverse engineering the protocols and identifying characteristic strings in the payload. We find that, if measured accurately, P2P traffic has never declined; indeed we have never seen the proportion of p2p traffic decrease over time (any change is an increase) in any of our data sources. Die Hypothese, dass durch die Klagen der MI die P2P-Netzwerke nicht mehr brummen würden, wird durch die Studie von Wissenschaflern an der University of California nicht bestätigt.
