RF Jamming Dataset for Vehicular Wireless Networks
The "RF Jamming Dataset for Vehicular Wireless Networks" presents a comprehensive collection of data used in the research paper titled "RF Jamming Classification Using Relative Speed Estimation in Vehicular Wireless Networks." This dataset comprises diverse scenarios of RF jamming attacks and interference in Vehicular Ad-hoc Networks (VANETs), along with corresponding ground truth labels. The dataset is designed to support the evaluation and development of detection algorithms for RF jamming attacks in VANETs. It includes measurements of key features, such as variations of relative speed (VRS), received signal strength indicator (RSSI), signal-to-interference-and-noise ratio (SINR), and packet delivery ratio (PDR). Researchers and practitioners in the field of wireless communication security can utilize this dataset to advance the development of RF jamming detection techniques and enhance the robustness of VANETs against malicious interference.
This dataset, titled "RF Jamming Dataset for Vehicular Wireless Networks," is a valuable resource for researchers and practitioners in the field of wireless communication security. It includes measurements and ground truth labels related to RF jamming attacks in Vehicular Ad-hoc Networks (VANETs). To make the most of this dataset, please follow these instructions:
The dataset is organized as a structured CSV file with the following columns:
- 'Time': Timestamp of the measurement.
- 'SNR' (Signal-to-Noise Ratio): Signal quality metric.
- 'Speed': Speed of the vehicles involved in the communication.
- 'RSSI' (Received Signal Strength Indicator)': Signal strength measurement.
- 'PDR' (Packet Delivery Ratio): Ratio of successfully delivered packets.
- 'Relative_Speed': Variations in estimated relative speed between the jammer and the receiver.
- 'Scenario': A numerical code representing the scenario: 1 (No Attack), 2 (Reactive Attack), 3 (Constant Attack).
Scenarios in the Datasets
The dataset includes three distinct scenarios, denoted as Scenario 1, Scenario 2, and Scenario 3. Each scenario represents a potential jamming attack case that may occur in a real-world environment.
- Scenario 1 (No Attack): The situation is examined in which there is an absence of a jammer, but there exists a source of unintentional interference that impacts the communication between the receiver and the transmitter. The objective of creating and simulating this specific scenario is to assess the capability of the VRS feature in distinguishing interference from intentional jamming. Such capability is deemed critical and necessary, particularly in an urban environment where interference is a significant factor contributing to wireless communication disruption. The receiver's vehicle travels through an area with significant interference, resulting in an immediate disruption of its communication with the transmitter (another vehicle or an RSU).
- Scenario 2 (Reactive Jammer Attack): The scenario involves the presence of a jammer that initiates following the target from an initial position (specified as one of the simulation parameters) while simultaneously transmitting jamming signals. As the jammer approaches the target, the jamming signals become more powerful, resulting in a more intense disruption of communication between the receiver and the transmitter. When the jammer reaches the target, in order to remain undetected for as long as possible, it retreats to a safe distance from which it periodically transmits jamming signals. The specific retreat location and the rate of jamming signal transmission are randomly determined for each simulation, with the safety distance ranging from 5 to 10 meters and the frequency of jamming signal transmission varying between 5 and 15 times per unit period.
- Scenario 3 (Constant Jammer Attack): The scenario examines a situation in which a constant jammer persistently transmits jamming signals while continuously following the target. When the jammer reaches its target, it begins transmitting at maximum power without the intention of remaining undetected.
- Dataset_1: 25m/s is used as the maximum estimated relative speed, which is the absolute value of the jammer speed minus the receiver speed.
- Dataset_2: 15m/s is used as the maximum estimated relative velocity.
- Developing and Evaluating Detection Algorithms: Researchers can use this dataset to develop and test RF jamming detection algorithms. Compare your algorithm's performance across different scenarios to assess its effectiveness.
- Feature Analysis: Investigate the role of features like relative speed (VRS) in jamming detection. Analyze how these features contribute to the accuracy of your detection methods.
- Comparative Studies: Conduct comparative studies to understand the impact of different scenarios on the performance of detection algorithms.
