The past decade has seen a lot of research on statistics-based network protocol identification using machine learning techniques. Prior studies have shown promising results in terms of high accuracy and fast classification speed. However, most works have embodied an implicit assumption that all protocols are known in advance and presented in the training data, which is unrealistic since real-world networks constantly witness emerging traffic patterns as well as unknown protocols in the wild. In this paper, we revisit the problem by proposing a learning scheme with unknown pattern extraction for statistical protocol identification. The scheme is designed with a more realistic setting, where the training dataset contains labeled samples from a limited number of protocols, and the goal is to tell these known protocols apart from each other and from potential unknown ones. Preliminary results derived from real-world traffic are presented to show the effectiveness of the scheme.
