Current gateway-based metering is not capable of capturing secured traffic because the gateway sits in the middle of the server-client transaction. A current solution uses client-side metering for secured traffic and gateway-based metering for unsecured traffic. This current solution is becoming less practical with the ever-increasing use of encryption for Internet delivered traffic. To overcome the above-noted problems, and other problems, with metering Internet traffic, disclosed herein are systems and methods that enable such secured traffic to be metered at a router or gateway.
