CAIDA UCSD Network Telescope Datasets Request Form

Academic researchers, government agencies and corporate entries in the DHS-Approved Locations (Australia, Canada, Israel, Japan, Netherlands, Singapore, United Kingdom) should request access through Information Marketplace for Policy and Analysis of Cyber-risk and Trust (IMPACT) portal. In order for the application to be considered, the researchers must obtain an IMPACT account as well as complete and agree to IMPACT Memorandum of Agreement (MOA).

Academic researchers from other foreign countries can request access through CAIDA by filling out and submitting this form. It usually takes about five to ten business days to process your request. We carefully review each application and the decision to grant the data access is based on the merits of your proposed data use.

Finally, these data also may be available for government and corporate entities not from DHS-Approved Locations who participate in CAIDA's membership program. Information on membership levels, services, and rates can be found on the CAIDA Sponsorship Information page, or by emailing

These data must be analyized on CAIDA machines, and cannot be downloaded!
