encrypted traffic

This dataset was created using Wireshark. The dataset contains a total of 30 encrypted communication records, 3 records (.pcap) were created for each application. The records were obtained from a mobile device that was connected to the laptop using wifi technology. The laptop was connected to the Internet and contained a running instance of Wireshark to create a record. The telephone had been restarted before each record was created. After connecting to the network, the device was left without user interaction for 5 minutes.


The following data set is modelled after the implementers’ test data in 3GPP TS 33.501 “Security architecture and procedures for 5G System” with the same terminology. The data set corresponds to SUCI (Subscription Concealed Identifier) computation in the 5G UE (User Equipment) for IMSI (International Mobile Subscriber Identity) based SUPI (Subscription Permanent Identifier) and ECIES Profile A.


Network traffic analysis, i.e. the umbrella of procedures for distilling information from network traffic, represents the enabler for highly-valuable profiling information, other than being the workhorse for several key network management tasks. While it is currently being revolutionized in its nature by the rising share of traffic generated by mobile and hand-held devices, existing design solutions are mainly evaluated on private traffic traces, and only a few public datasets are available, thus clearly limiting repeatability and further advances on the topic.
