att_abstract={{HTTP (Hypertext Transport Protocol)was originally primarily
used for human-initiated client-server communications
launched from web browsers traditional computers and laptops.
However, today it has become the protocol of choice
for a bewildering range of applications from a wide array
of emerging devices like smart TVs and gaming consoles.
This paper presents an initial study characterizing the nontraditional
sources of HTTP traffic such as consumer devices
and automated updates in the overall HTTP traffic for residential
Internet users. Among our findings, 25%of all HTTP
traffic is due to non-traditional sources, with 17.9% being
from consumer devices such as wifi enabled cell phones and
5.1% generated from automated software updates and background
processes. We also found 11% of HTTP requests
are caused from communications to advertising servers. The
mouse is gone: the iPhone and the Xbox don't have one, and
automated applications don't need one.}},
