Explanation of Data

Every night (UTC midnight), we start a new daily .pcap capture of incomming ICMP traffic to our measurement infrastructure. Our data is captured via tcpdump and subsequently brotli compressed. Our capture caps each packet at 256 byte and we remove all ICMP traffic that is issued from within our University network (e.g., generated via regular security scans). After compression (which may take several hours), the data is made available through this website. Each file is named according to the pattern: icmpin-dump-%Y-%m-%d-%s.pcap.br, (Y=year, m=month, d=day, s=unix timestamp) at creation time (UTC midnight).

Working with the Data

You can explore the pcap with all software that can handle pcaps (wireshark, tcpdump, ...). For our paper, we wrote a couple of tools to quickly handle ICMP messages. Our tools are available via github: URL HERE

Paper Dataset

The pcap captured for our paper is available here: Paper Dataset (75.2GB uncompressed, 19.7GB compressed, 637.5M packets). Please note that this capture caps packets at 96 byte in contrast to our evolving dataset.
