A selection of files is now available to researchers interested in evaluating cyber-attack detection methods, or in studying data from real life attacks.

The attack trace files can be downloaded from a website created as a spin-off of the LOBSTER pilot project, which has been monitoring Internet traffic across Europe since October 2004.

LOBSTER has captured more than 40,000 Internet attacks using 36 passive monitoring sensors deployed in nine different countries. It was a step towards an advanced European infrastructure that will improve our understanding of the Internet and help solve performance and security problems.
