Techniques are described herein for influencing network learning behaviors such as Quality of Service (QoS) using Manufacturer Usage Description (MUD) files. This mechanism improves the MUD QoS scheme by augmenting the dimensions of the QoS MUD component, and creating a new traffic mix hierarchy that converts the manufacturer expression of traffic importance into a locally significant MUD QoS hierarchy. This addition increases the security of MUD mechanisms by removing the possibility of Internet of Things (IoT) devices exploiting faults in allowed IoT protocols or servers. This mechanism also improves network allocation and planning by allowing different allocations based on traffic type and criticality.
