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. Quarterly data collection took
               place for one week in February, May, August and November in 2006. 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.
