ONTS Access Request Form

Anonymized traffic traces are available for use by academic researchers.

This dataset is divided in folders for each day of the month, with files containing 15 minutes worth of traces, on average. The files are compressed using gzip. The size of each of this files is 2.3GB compressed and 9GB uncompressed, and any given day can contain up to 80 trace files.

This files contains traffic traces anonymized using CryptoPan prefix-preserving anonymization. All traces in this dataset are anonymized with the same key. In addition, the payload has been removed from all packets.

The TurboCap network capture cards used to record these traces provide timestamps with nanosecond precision. However, the anonymized traces are stored in pcap format with timestamps truncated to microseconds.

The traces can be read with any software that reads the pcap (tcpdump) format, including the CoralReef Software Suite, tcpdump, Wireshark, and many others.

Please, complete and submit the form below to request access to anonymized passive traffic trace data. It usually takes about two to three business days to process your request. Upon approval you will receive an email with instructions on how to download the data you requested. If you have any questions or problems using this form, please contact onts-info@ict-ontic.eu.
