Impact of datasets
The approximate number of publications (in English) that have resulted from the use of iTrust’s CPS datasets are derived from a search on Google Scholar and given below. Search results are correct as at 28 Nov 2023.
“A recent survey summarized several public datasets from the ICS domain, that can be used for cyber security research. Morris describes datasets with data collected from power systems, gas pipelines, water storage systems and energy management systems. The majority of the Morris datasets, along with others…contain only network traﬃc data. We have not found any evidence that the datasets described above, have been downloaded at a large scale, been applied in research competitions or have been used for educational purposes, as is the case for the iTrust datasets.”

“Table 4 outlines reported tools that have been used to support security research for water systems, including developing datasets for testing intrusion detection and validating mitigation techniques. The most widely known and reputable of these are the Secure Water Treatment (SWaT) testbed and water distribution testbed (WADI), both of which were implemented and deployed at iTrust.”
