openpacket.org – Network Traffic Trace Repository

openpacket.org

A new free service is available to analysts, network administrators, students or any other people involved in security: openpacket.org. The goal of this new service is to provide network traces for further analyze. This can be very useful to analyze how work well-known worms or any other kind of attack.

The traces are available to download in pcap format to be read by all traffic analyzers (tcpdump or Wireshark are common tools to analyze network traffic). Traces are categorized in three areas:

  • Normal traffic
  • Suspicious traffic
  • Malicious traffic

It’s also possible to register and share your own traces. A must for your network knowledge!
