Anonymized passive traces taken at a west coast OC48 peering link for a large ISP in 2002 and 2003

This dataset contains anonymized passive traffic traces taken at a west coast OC48 peering link for a large ISP in 2002 and 2003. The payload has been removed and IP addresses anonymized using CryptoPAn prefix-preserving anonymization tool with the same key for all traces in this dataset.
These traces can be read with any software that reads the pcap (tcpdump) format. This data is useful for research on the characteristics of Internet traffic, including application breakdown, security events, topological distribution, and flow volume and duration.
