We elaborate on the dataset collected from our testbed developed at Washington University in St. Louis, to perform real-world IIoT operations, carrying out attacks that are more prelevant against IIoT systems. This dataset is to be utilized in the research of AI/ML based security solutions to tackle the intrusion problem.

Our IIoT network security dataset has been released to support the research community for a more realistic and diverse data collection in different extensive sub-fields of AI for IIoT that there is an increasing interest in, such as explainable AI, distributed AI, etc.


Provided dataset is cleased, pre-processed, and ready to use. The users may modify as they wish, but please cite the dataset as below:
