Defending critical infrastructure from cyber-security threats, understanding macroscopic Internet and developing the next-generation tools for monitoring, maintaining and controlling Internets complex ecosystem requires access to real-world data. Towards this goal, in the course of this project, our team has disseminated to the networking and security community, in a responsible and ethical manner, unique datasets collected and curated at Merit Network, Inc. Thus, researchers had the unique opportunity to get their hands on realistic data from a large Internet service provider, and utilize such data for experimentation, discovery of Internet trends, research and development of new software and tools, pedagogical purposes and others.
