Abstract Evaluating network components such as network intrusion detection systems, firewalls, routers, or switches suffers from the lack of available network traffic traces that on the one hand are appropriate for a specific test environment but on the other hand have the same characteristics as actual traffic. Instead of just capturing traffic and replaying the trace, we identify a set of packet trace manipulation operations that enable us to generate a trace bottom-up:o ur trace primitives can be traces from different environments or artificially generated ones; our basic operations include merging of two traces, moving a flow across time, duplicating a flow, and stretching a flow's time-scale. After discussing the potential as well as the dangers of each operation with respect to analysis at different protocol layers, we present a framework within which these operations can be realized and show an example configuration for our prototype.
