The Internet Research Task Force’s (IRTF) Internet Measurement Research Group (IMRG) continued its practice of sponsoring workshops on current topics in computer network measurement with the Workshop on Application Classification and Identification (WACI) held October 3, 2007, at BBN Technologies in Cambridge, Massachusetts. There has been much general interest within the community recently in finding techniques to identify traffic without examination of the service ports used in the TCP or UDP header, as these increasingly do not accurately indicate the application generating the traffic.

Therefore, rather than focusing on a single tale of woe I have tried to extrapolate some key points from across the suboptimal reviewing I have observed.
