Abstract

Evaluating IDS algorithms and systems is often an ad-hoc process and makes it hard to compare evaluation results and performance of IDS systems. There is a need for divers and realistic test traffic and for developing metrics to be able to judge whether some generated traffic is a representative sample of observed traffic. In this paper, the authors propose a framework for a network traffic generator which creates diverse traffic through a variety of traffic sources and describe a working implementation of it. The lessons learned from this experience can serve as the basis to create a detailed specification for an open-source implementation of the framework.
