This dataset results from a month-long cloud-based Internet Background Radiation observation conducted in May 2023.
A sensor fleet comprised of 26 EC2 compute instances was deployed within Amazon Web Services across their 26 commercially available regions, 1 sensor per region.

The dataset contains 21,856,713 incoming packets, out of which 17,008,753 are TCP datagrams, 3,076,855 are ICMP packets and the remainder, 1,770,418 are UDP messages.
