Data Sets By Type
- Ether Malware Analysis Dataset - Collected by Artem Dinaburg, Paul Royal, Monirul Sharif, Wenke Lee at the Georgia Institute of Technology, the Ether Malware Analysis Dataset is a collection of over 25,000 malware instances used to test EtherUnpack against packaged malware. These malware instances were collected between January and March of 2008 from honeypots, mail filters, proxy monitors, web crawling, file sharing networks, and other sources. CAUTION: THIS DATASET CONTAINS MALWARE. Please review the DIBBs-ISI Malware Handling Protocol.

- Comprehensive, Multi-Source Cyber Security Events - Collected by Alexander Kent at Los Alamos National Laboratory, this collection is a comprehensive enterprise cyber security data set spanning 58 days containing data from authentication, process, DNS, Network flows, and red team attacks on the Los Alamos National Laboratory's corporate, internal computer network. The data records five data elements, 1,648,275,307 events in total for 12,425 users, 17,684 computers, and 62,974 processes.
- CSDMC 2010 - This data was collected by API monitors during a data mining competition at the International Conference on Neural Information Processing (ICNIP) in Sydney, Austrailia 2010. Knowledge about the malware programs presented in the dataset is outdated and may not contain
significant information for detecting today’s malware. It may, however, be useful for historical reference or other purposes.
- CTU-13 - Collected by Sebastian Garcia Martin Grill, and Honza Stiborek, at the Czech Technical University (CTU) in Prague, the CTU-13 dataset consist of a group of 13 different malware captures in a real network environment. The captures include Botnet, Normal, and Background traffic. The Botnet traffic comes from the infected hosts, the Normal traffic from the verified normal hosts, and the Background traffic is all the rest of traffic. The dataset is labeled in a flow by flow basis and was collected from August 10-15, 2011.

- eMews HTTPS and SSH Collection-1 Dataset - Collected by Brian Ricks and Bhavani Thuraisingham at the University of Texas at Dallas, eMews is a collection of PCAP data captured from an in-lab emulated network, using the CORE network emulator and the eMews framework developed to generate packet traces and manage experimental runs. The captures vary from 1 hour to 10 hours in duration and are captured from an HTTPS and SSH server within the network. Because these captures were performed in a controlled environment, the researchers can guarantee that no malware or any other malicious behavior is present. The network consists of 1,022 nodes, of which 844 incorporate autonomous web crawling activity, and 36 incorporate autonomous SSH interactions.

- ISOT Botnet – Collected by Sherif Saad, Issa Traore, Ali A. Ghorbani, Bassam Sayed, David Zhao, Wei Lu, John Felix, and Payman Hakimian, of the Information Security and Object Technology (ISOT) Research Lab at the University of Victoria, the ISOT dataset combines datasets containing malicious traffic from the French chapter of the honeynet project involving the Storm and Waledac botnets and one dataset each from the Traffic Lab at Ericsson Research in Hungary and the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab (LBNL). The Ericsson Lab dataset contains a large number of general traffic from a variety of applications, including HTTP web browsing behavior, World of Warcraft gaming packets, and packets from popular bittorrent clients such as Azureus. The datasets from the LBNL trace data to provide additional non-malicious background traffic. Data collection dates from October 2004 to January 2005.
- Linux Redhat 7.1 System Deployed in a Honeynet Logs - Collected by Anton A. Chuvakin. This dataset consists of system logs from a Linux Redhat 7.1 system deployed in a honeynet. The owner of the data runs a site for public domain, real-world log data in which malicious activities are captured. One interesting aspect of this data is that there is no sanitization or anonymization; the data is provided unmodified (and no modifications are needed or required to use the data for research). Data was collected for 590 continuous days between 2006 and 2007.

- M0DROID Dataset - Collected by the University Putra Malaysia. This dataset comes bundled with the M0DROID mobile malware analysis tool, which is designed to detect Android malware using signatures derived from system call requests of individual Android APKs. The dataset itself contains signatures generated from many Android APKs, and can be used separately from the detection engine. Collected November 2014.

- Shadowbrokers EternalBlue/EternalRomance PCAP Dataset - Collected by Eric Conrad. This dataset is comprised of PCAP data from the EternalBlue and EternalRomance malware. These PCAPs capture the actual exploits in action, on target systems that had not yet been patched to defeat to the exploits. The EternalBlue PCAP data uses a Windows 7 target machine, whereas the EternalRomance PCAP data uses a Windows 2008r2 target machine. Also included is EternalBlue PCAP data for a patched Windows 7 target machine showing the failed exploit. This data was collected in April 2017.

- Standard Dragon NIDS Alert Logs- Collected by Anton A. Chuvakin. This dataset consists of alert logs from the Enterasys Dragon NIDS 4.x intrusion detection system. The owner of the data runs a site for public domain, real-world log data in which malicious activities are captured. One interesting aspect of this data is that there is no sanitization or anonymization; the data is provided unmodified (and no modifications are needed or required to use the data for research). Data was collected for 590 continuous days between 2006 and 2007.

- Unified Host and Network Data Set - Collected by Melissa J. M. Turcotte, Alexander D. Kent, and Curtis Hash. This dataset helps to address the current lack of datasets derived from real-world enterprise networks, and to also fulfill the need for a rich dataset that has not been so heavily sanitized as to cripple any cyber-research value. There are two sets which comprise this dataset: one of network flow data mainly originating from internal enterprise routers, and one of Windows host data. The data was collected in 2017 over a period of 90 days from the Los Alamos National Laboratory's enterprise network. Some values were anonymized, but for those values, the anonymization was kept consistent between the two datasets.

- VERIS Community Database - Collected by Verizon Security Research & Cyber Intelligence Center. The Vocabulary for Event Recording and Incident Sharing (VERIS) is a language for describing security incidents. VERIS and its accompanying dataset (VCDB) aim to provide not only a repository of widespread publicly collected incidents, but a common language for describing these incidents. The overall goal is to cooperatively learn from past experiences for better risk management, and to collect data for all publicly available data breaches. Data collected between 2012 and November 2017.
