Nowadays, the Internet is becoming more and more complex due to an ever-increasing number of network devices, various multimedia services and a prevalence of encrypted traffic.

Therefore, in this context, this book presents a novel efficient multi modular troubleshooting architecture to overcome limitations related to encrypted traffic and high time complexity. This architecture contains five main modules: data collection, anomaly detection, temporary remediation, root cause analysis and definitive remediation. In data collection, there are two sub modules: parameter measurement and traffic classification. This architecture is implemented and validated in a software-defined networking (SDN) environment.


1. State of the Art on Network Troubleshooting.
2. Novel Global Troubleshooting Framework for Encrypted Traffic.
3. Traffic Classification: Novel QUIC Traffic Classifier Based on Convolutional Neural Network.
4. Anomaly Detection.
5. Temporary Remediation: SDN-based Application-aware Segment Routing for Large-scale Networks.
6. Root Cause Analysis and Definitive Remediation.
