AWID is a family of datasets focused on intrusion detection. Go To Download*Release Policy Applies


Wireless technologies have become prevalent in the last few years.

While bold attempts to secure these technologies have been made, most security measures have proved inadequate in practice.

The AWID project aspires to act as a solid base for providing tools, methodologies and datasets that will aid researchers in developing robust security mechanisms for the current and next generations of wireless networks.
