ONTS dataset

One of the cornerstones of the ONTIC project is the provisioning of network traffic traces from the operational environment of an ISP over a long period of time −almost throughout project duration. The so-called ONTIC Network Traffic Summary (ONTS) dataset was not only used by the project for testing the developed on/off-line ML-based traffic analysis algorithms but it has also been made available to the wider research community for providing a contemporary, valid traffic dataset for reference testing.

ONTS has gathered traffic traces captured from the core network of a multi-service ISP over 760 days since October 2014, amounting to a total of 511TB corresponding to an average of 688GB of captured data per day. It can become available through an explicit electronic request procedure in text files containing time-stamped anonymized IP packet headers or flow-aggregated records adhering to current legislation for data protection.

In addition, SynthONTS was generated in order to validate the unsupervised network anomaly detector developed by a member of the project (LAAS-CNRS). This ground truth was generated by injecting anomalies created on CORE (https://www.nrl.navy.mil/itd/ncs/products/core) in the ONTS dataset. SynthONTS is also made publicly available as a part of the ONTS dataset. This ground truth is available under request for use by the academic researcher. It is delivered with a description of the ground truth and the injected anomalies (IP of attackers, victims and amplifiers).

ONTIC Project press release by Polito

Polito has recently published a press release specifically for the ONTIC project on the December 8th 2014 edition of a leading Italian business newspaper, Il Sole 24 Ore, (www.ilsole24ore.it), which is the most widespread newspaper among decision makers and business people in Italy. The full page of the newspaper which includes the press release is available as a PDF file after the break. Future plans are to evaluate the outcomes of this press release and include the possibility of a new press release with updated results of the project.
