    <subfield code="a">&lt;p&gt;This repository contains a&amp;nbsp;dataset for the research of domain generation algorithms (DGAs) and machine learning. More precisely, it targets dictionary-based DGAs.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;&lt;em&gt;Constantinos Patsakis, Fran Casino: &amp;quot;Exploiting Statistical and Structural Features for the Detection of Domain Generation Algorithms&amp;quot;,&amp;nbsp;Journal of Information Security and Applications, 2021.&lt;/em&gt;&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;Features ordered as in the shared dataset:&lt;/p&gt;

	&lt;li&gt;Family: DGA that the domain belongs to&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;SLD: SLD of the Domain&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;L-LEN: The length of Domain&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;L-DIG: The number of digits in Domain&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;L-CON-MAX: The maximum number of consecutive consonants Domain&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;R-CON-VOW: Number of consonants divided by L-LEN&amp;nbsp;&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;L-SYM: The number of special characters&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;R-SYM-LEN: L-SYM divided by L-LEN&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;R-Dom-3G: Ratio of benign grams in Dom-3G&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;R-Dom-4G: Ratio of benign grams in Dom-4G&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;R-Dom-5G: Ratio of benign grams in Dom-5G&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;L-W2: Number of words with more than 2 characters in Domain&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;L-W3: Number of words with more than 3 characters in Domain&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;R-WS-LEN: Dom-WS divided by L-LEN&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;R-WDS-LEN: Dom-WDS divided by L-LEN&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;R-W2-LEN: Dom-W2 divided by L-LEN&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;R-W3-LEN: Dom-W3 divided by L-LEN&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;M2-Dom-Ws: 2-Chain Markov English grams applied to Dom-WS&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;M2-Dom-WDS: 2-Chain Markov English grams applied Dom-WDS&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;E-Dom-WS: Entropy of Dom-WS&amp;nbsp;&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;E-Dom-WDS: Entropy of Dom-WDS&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;E-Dom-W2: Entropy of Dom-W2&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;E-Dom-W3: Entropy of Dom-W3&lt;/li&gt;
