IoT Traffic Capture

This web page documents our datasets related to IoT traffic capture.

Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices, such as Internet-connected cameras, smart light-bulbs, and smart TVs, are surging in both sales and installed base. Despite rapid growth, there is an increasing concern about the vulnerability of IoT devices and the security threats they raise for the Internet ecosystem. A significant risk is that compromised IoT devices can be used to mount large-scale Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) attacks.

To help IoT-related research such as those on IoT device detection and IoT-based DDoS defense, we release the following IoT traffic capture:

  • IoT_Bootup_Traces-20161207
  • IoT_Bootup_Traces-20181107
  • IoT_Operation_Traces-20200127

Datasets are available upon request.
