This proposal provides techniques for a system to identify network devices (e.g., classify their types, operating system families, etc.) based on information associated with contacted servers. In some implementations, the system may be designed to include an auto-update mechanism that enables the system to adapt to changing behavior of devices automatically. Thus, only initial labeled seeds may be needed to initialize the system, which may then automatically adapt itself without manual retraining.
