Evaluation Dataset; Cyber Attacks; Defense Mechanisms

To determine the effectiveness of any defense mechanism, there is a need for comprehensive real-time network data that solely references various attack scenarios based on older software versions or unprotected ports, and so on. This presented dataset has entire network data at the time of several cyber attacks to enable experimentation on challenges based on implementing defense mechanisms on a larger scale. For collecting the data, we captured the network traffic of configured virtual machines using Wireshark and tcpdump.
