Captured Thread packets from OpenThread-enabled development boards.

Contributed by Dimitrios-Georgios Akestoridis, Vyas Sekar, Patrick Tague.

This Carnegie Mellon University dataset contains Thread packets that were captured using a software-defined radio (USRP N210). More specifically, the contributors used GNU Radio with the gr-ieee802-15-4 and gr-foo modules to receive IEEE 802.15.4 packets and store them in PCAP format. Furthermore, the contributors used Adafruit Feather nRF52840 Express devices that were flashed with OpenThread binaries for Nordic Semiconductor nRF528xx SoCs in order to form Thread networks. In total, 35 experiments were conducted in order to study the security of Thread networks, which can be organized into three different types of experiments: (a) packet analysis experiments, (b) energy depletion attack experiments, and (c) online password guessing attack experiments. This research was supported in part by the Secure and Private IoT initiative (IoT@CyLab) at the Carnegie Mellon CyLab Security and Privacy Institute. More details about the procedure that was followed and the master keys that were generated for each experiment are included in the dataset.

Captured Zigbee packets during energy depletion attack experiments. DOI: 10.15783/t8mt-a674 (

Contributed by Dimitrios-Georgios Akestoridis, Patrick Tague.

This Carnegie Mellon University dataset contains Zigbee packets that were captured during energy-depletion attack experiments. More specifically, the contributors used Zigator to deploy two stand-alone WIDS sensors and capture Zigbee packets, while HiveGuard was used to archive the pcap files that were generated by the WIDS sensors. Each WIDS sensor corresponded to a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ that was equipped with an ATUSB in monitor mode. Four experiments were conducted to test four commercial Zigbee devices, each powered by a brand new CR2450 lithium battery, against an energy depletion attack that was launched by an ATUSB with modified firmware. This research was supported in part by the CyLab Security and Privacy Institute. More details about the setup of each experiment, as well as the keys that were used to encrypt and authenticate the captured Zigbee packets, can be found in the dataset.

Captured Zigbee packets from commercial smart home devices.

Contributed by Dimitrios-Georgios Akestoridis, Madhumitha Harishankar, Michael Weber, Patrick Tague.

This Carnegie Mellon University dataset contains Zigbee packets that were captured using a software-defined radio (USRP N210). More specifically, the contributors used GNU Radio with the gr-ieee802-15-4 and gr-foo modules to receive IEEE 802.15.4 packets and store them in PCAP format. The captured network traffic was generated from ten commercial Zigbee devices that can be found in smart home environments. Eight experiments were conducted that differed in the smart hub that was used and the physical topology of the devices. These experiments took place on the Silicon Valley campus of Carnegie Mellon University in order to analyze the security of Zigbee-enabled smart homes. The experiments lasted about 34.644 hours in total and resulted in the logging of 571,509 valid packets. More details about the procedure that was followed and the setup of each experiment are included in the dataset, along with the encryption keys that were used in order to facilitate packet analysis.

Community RF Sensing via iPhones for Source Localization and Coverage Maps

Contributed by Emmanouil Alimpertis, Aggelos Bletsas.

MySignals dataset was collected by a network of approx. 10 mobile smartphone (iPhones) users via the MySignals iPhone App ( for a period of approximately 8 months. MySignal App records the received signal strength indicator (RSSI), in dBm, of the mobile serving cell, as well as their own location, through the GPS module of their smartphone and other contextual information (timestamp, deviceID etc.). Measurements and relevant information (e.g. c ell ID, downlink carrier frequency and mobile user location) are saved temporarily in a local sqlite DB and uploaded periodically at a central web server DB for permanent storage. The systems allowed crowdsourcing in an automated and user transparent-way. The systems allowed crowdsourcing in an automated and user transparent-way and no personal identifiers were collected. The published data contains approximately 3 million GSM measurements and they are a subset of the entire MySignals dataset, utilized primarily for RF Source (e.g. GSM Base Station) localization case study and localization algorithm developme nt. The reported measurements were collected in Chania, Greece for one central Base Stations (BS) for a major Greek Cellular provider. The massive dataset along with the novel Particle Filtering localization algorithm, allowed RF source location estimation error on the order of 50m, with the phones-sensors located in a grid of approx. 1000m x 1000m. Although the reported data were primarily used for BS localization, they were also used as mobile coverage maps; for example, cove rage holes were able to be discovered. At a glance, each of the recorded measurements contains the following fields: timestamp, iPhoneUUID, RSS1, RSS5, latitude, longitude, accuracy, cellID, lac, mac, arfcn, etc. DOI: 10.15783/c7-3bk9-9t96 Start date: 2012-09-01, end date: 2013-04-15

4G and 5G RAN monitoring data collected using the ElasticMon 5G monitoring framework over FlexRAN

Contributed by Berkay Koksal, Robert Schmidt, Xenofon Vasilakos, Navid Nikaien.

Ten dataset files containing 4G/5G MAC, RRC and PDCP statistics and monitoring data, grouped into two versions of 5 datasets each: raw statistics and processed monitoring data. Raw datasets are recorded using ElasticMon v0.1, a prototype version of a monitoring framework extension of the FlexRAN 5G programmable platform for Software-Defined Radio Access Networks. For details, see here: Scenarios setup: Raw datasets are recorded for one eNB and a single mobile User Equipment (UE) in five different mobility scenarios by following different motions and distance patterns relative to the eNB . All raw data have been recorded without including Tx power amplification on the RF frontend (0 dBm transmit power), which implies an approximately 10m maximum range of coverage. Future versions of the datasets will refer t o multiple UEs monitoring and an eNB with Tx power amplification. How to use: The contributed raw datasets can be processed and used for training intelligent 4G/5G models. The processed datasets that are also contributed here follow a proposed stepwise paradigm procedure. Therefore, you are advised to customize and adapt the proposed processing steps to match your own needs. Dataset DOI: 10.15783/c7-s58c-qn61 / datasets: and

Measurements for PhD: Surface density of radiation energy as an integral measure for the characterization of exposure to electromagnetic emissions

Contributed by Darko S. Suka, Predrag V. Pejovic, Mirjana I. Simic-Pejovic.

The measurement results provided here are part of work on PhD thesis connected with measurement results variability reduction (main focus was on GSM/UMTS system. but other technologies were measured at the same time). All measurements were of indoor type. The duration of collecting data samples was 24h per day, with 10 seconds sampling interval. At some places it took one, two or four weeks to complete the measurements. Equipment used is the dosimeter (or exposimeter) EME Spy 140 (manufactured by Satimo). Similar to the procedure described in (Vermeeren, 2013; Markakis et al., 2013), the exposimeter was placed at available position in the investigated rooms and were standing alone. It was, thus, not worn by adults. Also, no influence due to shielding occured, like when exposimeters are carried on the body (where underestimations up to 6.5 dB are possible according to Iskra et al. (2010)). During measurement period, all location were secured, and only authorized technical personnel that performed measurements had access to such places in order to provide measurement conditions of unperturbed field, according to EN 50492:2010 and EN 50413:2010. All measurements were made within the range of temperature and humidity stated by the manufacturer of the meter ( Finally, during our measurement campaign, the networks were not forced to operate in a specific mode in order to observe traffic variations in real conditions. All results of measurements are in unit V/m (for electric field).

Data concerning social interaction and propinquity based on wireless and bluetooth.

Contributed by S. Firdose, L. Lopes, W. Moreira, R. Sofia, P. Mendes.

This dataset comprises experiments carried out with the open-source middleware NSense (fomerly named as USense), available at The data has been collected based on four sensors: bluetooth; Wi-Fi; microphone; accelerometer. NSense then relies on four different pipelines to compute aspects such as relative distance (Wi-Fi); social strength (based on bluetooth contact duration); sound activity level; motion. We set up experiments making use of Samsung Galaxy S3 devices. For each experiment, there is the following set of data files: - SocialProximity.dat has three columns: Timestamp, DeviceName, Encounter Duration, Average Encounter Duration, Social Strength (Per hour) and Social Strength(Per minute) towards DeviceName - DistanceOutput.dat has three columns: Timestamp, DeviceName, and Distance towards DeviceName - Microphone.dat has two columns: Timestamp, and Soundlevel(QUIET, NORMAL, ALERT and NOISY) - PhysicalActivity.dat has two columns: Timestamp, and Activity as STATIONARY, WALKING and RUNNING There are two tracesets. A first traceset has been collected relying on a first NSense version in 2015. Then, a second traceset has been collected in 2016, with a refined version of NSense. In all tracesets, devices have been carried around by people that share the same affiliation during their individual daily routines (24 hour periods).

Trace of wireless contacts, social connections, and user interests, performed in an academic environment for 63 days, with 72 participants

Contributed by Radu I. Ciobanu, Ciprian Dobre.

Wireless contacts trace collected at the University Politehnica of Bucharest in the spring of 2012, using an application entitled HYCCUPS Tracer (, with the purpose of collecting contextual data from Android smartphones. It was run in the background and collected availability and mobile interaction information such as usage statistics, user activity, battery statistics, or sensor data, but it also gathered information about a device's encounters with other nodes or with wireless access points. Encounter collection was performed using AllJoyn. The data was collected by constructing and deleting wireless sessions using the AllJoyn framework based on WiFi. Tracing was executed asynchronously. The duration of the tracing experiment was 63 days, between March and May 2012, and had 72 participants, out of which only 42 had at least one contact. By analyzing the participants' Facebook profiles, the social connections matrix was extracted, as well as the users' interests. The trace (and others from the CRAWDAD collection) is parsed within the MobEmu simulator (used in all UPB's papers), publicly available at

This dataset contains mobility and connectivity traces extracted from GPS traces collected from the regional Fire Department of Asturias, Spain.

Contributed by Sergio Cabrero, Roberto Garcia, Xabiel G. García, David Melendi.

This dataset contains mobility and connectivity traces extracted from GPS traces collected from the regional Fire Department of Asturias, Spain. The original data source is one year of GPS traces extracted from a Geographical Information System (GIS). The traces were generated by GPS devices embedded mainly in cars and trucks, but also in a helicopter and a few personal radios. A total of 229 devices reported 19,462,339 locations. A new location is reported with an interval of approximately 30 seconds when the GPS device detects movement. To convert GPS traces into ONE connectivity traces, we have assumed circular communication ranges of 10, 50 and 200 meters. There is a connection between nodes that are closer than the given range. For simplicity, we assume that the position of a device is always the last position reported. Our analysis shows several important findings for the design of network protocols from the physical to the application layer. The networks examined are heterogeneous in the contact duration and the number of nodes contacted (degree centrality). In addition, they are sparse and partitioned, but delay- tolerant routes connecting these partitions exist. Finally, there are patterns in the connection between nodes that can ease the discovery of these routes and the deployment of delay-tolerant services.

Multipath TCP traces from real smartphone users

Contributed by Quentin De Coninck, Matthieu Baerts, Benjamin Hesmans, Olivier Bonaventure.

Multipath TCP is a recent TCP extension that enables multihomed hosts like smartphones to send and receive data over multiple interfaces. Despite the growing interest in this new TCP extension, little is known about its behavior with real applications in wireless networks. Our paper "A First Analysis of Multipath TCP on Smartphones" analyzes a trace from a SOCKS proxy serving smartphones using Multipath TCP. This first detailed study of real Multipath TCP smartphone traffic reveals several interesting points about its behavior in the wild. It confirms the heterogeneity of wireless and cellular networks which influences the scheduling of Multipath TCP. The analysis shows that most of the additional subflows are never used to send data. The amount of reinjections is also quantified and shows that they are not a major issue for the deployment of Multipath TCP. With our methodology to detect handovers, around a quarter of the connections using several subflows experience data handovers.

Measurements on real HTTP throughput via several 3G/LTE providers in Japan.

Contributed by Marat Zhanikeev.

While recent LTE provider promise very high rates, end users often complain that HTTP throughput is not sufficient for rich multimedia, even as non-demanding as YouTube. It is interesting that this artifact can be found in both 3G and LTE providers. For example, it is not uncommon for a YouTube video to freeze on a terminal with LTE connection. The main cause of such artifacts is the congestion due to high and further increasing number of subscribers. Congestion can happen at several points inside a given 3G/LTE provider, but it is not important to end user because content is commonly found outside of 3G/LTE providers, guaranteeing that all subscribers have to do through the bottleneck. This dataset contains measurements conducted on 3 (anonymized) 3G/LTE providers in Japan in April-May 2013. The measurement design was very simple -- a webapp running on 3 terminals (that were tweaked not to go to sleep and not used for anything else) would regularly send web requests to a web server placed within a university campus and measure the round-trip time of the request. Bulk size was randomly selected from a number of preset values and was always downloaded (HTTP get request with bulk returning in reply). It was verified that the wired part of the e2e connection was never the bottleneck, implying the throughput was always impaired within a given 3G/LTE provider.

Measurements of HTTP requests over 802.11 in dense wireless classrooms

Contributed by Marat Zhanikeev.

The common wisdom tells one not to attach more than 5-10 wireless devices to an access point. This is a problem in wireless educational classes, one can get between 10 and 50 students in the same room. Such spaces are referred to as dense wireless networks. While there are several methods that can be used to deal with dense wireless environments, installing multiple APs and separating them by channel is arguably the most readily available method today. In 802.11g/n the practical advice is to assign CH1, CH5 and CH9 to the three APs. However, even in such environments, wireless channels can become congested. It was noticed that tablet terminals would often fail to complete HTTP requests or fail getting access to the wireless channel entirely. In order to deal with this reliability problem, educational webapps had to be updated in such a way that they would detect failed requests and repeat them multiple times until a valid reply comes back. This dataset contains measurements which can help model such environments and the related application logic. The dataset has slightly non-trivial metrics which described failed/repeated. The experiment was run over multiple parameters and with on-the-fly changes in the layout. The measurement itself was simple -- a web application (in browser) on user terminal would send a GET request to the web server and would download bulk of a randomly selected size. All the performance metrics were recorded at user terminals and gradually uploaded to the server -- specifically, each new request would also contain the variables containing the results of the previous request, which had negligible effect on size but facilitated efficient log-keeping.

Mobile data collected using the Netalyzr for Android App.

Contributed by Narseo Vallina-Rodriguez, Srikanth Sundaresan, Christian Kreibich, Nicholas Weaver, Vern Paxson.

This dataset was collected by the ICSI Netalyzr app for Android to develop a characterization of how operational decisions, such as network configurations, business models, and relationships between operators introduce diversity in service quality and affect user security and privacy. We delve in detail beyond the radio link and into network configuration and business relationships in six countries. We identify the widespread use of transparent middleboxes such as HTTP and DNS proxies, analyzing how they actively modify user traffic, compromise user privacy, and potentially undermine user security. In addition, we identify network sharing agreements between operators, highlighting the implications of roaming and characterizing the properties of MVNOs, including that a majority are simply rebranded versions of major operators. More broadly, our findings using this data highlight the importance of considering higher-layer relationships when seeking to analyze mobile traffic in a sound fashion.

Fingerprinting of wireless devices exploiting information leaked due to different device hardware compositions: Inter-Arrival-Time (IAT) of packets from wireless devices

Contributed by A. Selcuk Uluagac.

In these datasets, we present the the inter-arrival time information collected actively and passively from different wireless devices using wire-side observations in a local network. The captures were collected from 30 wireless devices including iPads, iPhones, Kindles, Google-Phones, Netbooks, IP Printers, IP Cameras, etc., from various applications and protocols such as Skype, ICMP, SCP, Iperf. Due to heterogeneity in devices (e.g., deterministic hardware and software configurations), time-variant behavior of network traffic stemming from different devices can be used to create unique, reproducible device and device type signatures and to fingerprint devices and their types as explained in A. Selcuk Uluagac, Sakthi V. Radhakrishnan, Cherita Corbett, Antony Baca, and Raheem A.

Wireless probe requests collected in Rome between February and May 2013.

Contributed by Marco V. Barbera, Alessandro Epasto, Alessandro Mei, Sokol Kosta, Vasile C. Perta, Julinda Stefa.

Mobile devices try to automatically switch to WiFi connectivity whenever possible. To facilitate this automatic process, they store the list of the names (SSID) of the networks the user typically connects to and, periodically, these SSIDs are sent in broadcast in the form of Probe Request to search for available networks. The following questions then rise naturally: "What do your smartphone probes say about you?"; "Is it possible to infer meaningful relationships among a group of people just using their smartphones' probes?". To answer all these questions, we organized a campaign of probe collection in Rome (Italy): We targeted a university campus as well as city-wide, national and international events. Our campaign lasted three months, and we managed to collect, using commodity hardware only, ~11 million probes sent by ~160 thousand different devices. The release contains anonymized traces in .pcap format.

PBProbe - a link capacity estimation tool for network links.

Contributed by Ling-Jyh Chen, Wei-Xian Lee.

PBProbe is a link capacity estimation tool that supports a wide range of links, including high speed links, asymmetric links, and wireless links. The tool is based on the CapProbe algorithm excepts that it uses a “packet bulk” to adapt the number of packets in each probing according to different network characteristics. As a result, it preserves the simplicity, speed, and accuracy of CapProbe, and compensates for the poor system timer granularity problem that may cause problems on high speed links. Compared to other capacity estimation techniques, PBProbe is ideal for real deployments that require online and timely capacity estimation, and it can facilitate various applications, such as peer-to-peer streaming and file sharing, overlay network structuring, pricing and QoS enhancements, as well as network monitoring.
