ADFA IDS is an intrusion detection system dataset made publicly available in 2013, intended as representative of modern attack structure and methodology to replace the older datasets KDD and UNM.

ADFA-WD (Windows dataset) was generated on a Windows XP Service Pack 2 host OS with the XP default firewall enabled for all attacks, and file sharing enabled, a network printer configured, wireless and Ethernet networking. Norton AV 2013 was used to scan certain payloads. FTP server, web server and management tool, and streaming audio digital radio package were activated.

A target ratio of 1 : 10 : 1 =normal data:validation data:attack data was used to guide collection and structuring activities.

TCP ports, web based vectors, browser attacks, and malware attachments

Bind shell, reverse shell, exploitation payload, remote operation, staging, system manipulation, privilege escalation, data exfiltration, and back-door insertion.
