"Defending critical infrastructure from cyber-security threats, understanding macroscopic Internet and developing the next-generation tools for monitoring, maintaining and controlling Internet's complex ecosystem requires access to realworld 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."
