Quarterly DoS backscatter traces

Information useful for longitudinal study of denial-of-service (DoS) attacks.
               This dataset currently consists of IPv4 packets sent by DoS attack victims
               in response to spoofed attack traffic. This backscatter from victims was
               collected by the UCSD Network Telescope. Data collection is planned for one
               week in February, May, August and November in 2008, and the 2 day DITL 2008
               measurement event in March. Possible uses of this data include modeling DoS
               attacks, understanding victim populations, and using real packet traces to
               validate algorithms for detecting or classifying malicious traffic.
               This last use is particularly valuable because it is extremely challenging
               to artificially generate the kind of real-world noise present on the Internet.
