Field bus systems are used in modern day Building and Industrial Automation Systems to interconnect devices and machines. Due to their common lack of fundamental security features such as encryption or authentication and their high prevalence field bus systems are highly vulnerable to attacks. In parallel research we are investigating how these field buses can be secured. In order to benchmark those security measures we are defining a series of test-data sets simulating attacks. Additionally we describe a formal mechanism to generate those data sets since real world attack data sets are not easily attainable. Therefor we depicted what network traffic is caused by various attack-types and we investigate short and long term cycles within field bus communications. We publicly provide our results and invite other researchers to make use of them and contribute to the developing benchmark collection.
