Packet-level and IEEE 802.11 MAC frame-level Network Traffic Traces Data of the D-Link IoT devices

This dataset presents network traffic traces data of the 14 D-Link IoT devices from different types including camera, network camera, smart-plug, door-window sensor, and home-hub. It consists of: • Network packet traces (inbound and outbound traffic) and • IEEE 802.11 MAC frame traces. The experimental testbed was set-up in the Network Systems and Signal Processing (NSSP) laboratory at Universiti Brunei Darussalam (UBD) to collect all the network traffic traces from 9th September 2020 to 10th January 2021 including an access point on a laptop. The network traffic traces were captured passively observing the Ethernet interface and the WiFi interface at the access point. In packet traces, typical communication protocols, such as TCP, UDP, IP, ICMP, ARP, DNS, SSDP, TLS/SSL etc, data are captured which IoT devices use for communication on the Internet. In the probe request frame (a subtype of management frames) traces, data are recorded which IoT devices use to connect access point on the local area network. The authors would like to thank the Faculty of Integrated Technologies, Universiti Brunei Darussalam, for the support to conduct this research experiment in the Network Systems and Signal Processing laboratory.
