Can internet measurement be a noise for analysis of darknet?

Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) Darknet is a passive sensor system dedicated to monitoring traffic
routed to unused IP address space.
Darknets have been widely used as a tool to detect potentially malicious activities, such as propagating worms, because most packets observed in a darknet can be assumed to have been originated from nonlegitimate hosts.
However, recent commoditization of Internet-scale survey traffic
originated from legitimate hosts could overwhelm the traffic
originally supposed to be monitored with a darknet's sensor. Based on
this observation, we posed the following research question:
"Can the Internet-scale survey traffic become noise when
we analyze darknet traffic?"
To answer the research question, this work proposes a novel framework
called ID2 that aims to increase the darkness of darknet
traffic, i.e., ID2 attempts to automatically discriminate between
Internet-scale survey traffic originating from legitimate hosts and
other traffic potentially associated with malicious activities. ID2
leverages two intrinsic characteristics of Internet-scale survey
traffic: a network-level property and some form of footprints
explicitly indicated by surveyors.
Through the extensive analysis of traffic using ID2, we revealed that
Internet-scale traffic actually can be noise when we analyzed darknet
traffic. We also demonstrated that the discrimination of survey
traffic enabled us to expose hidden traffic anomalies, which were
invisible without our technique.
