The disruption of communications in critical infrastructures could have a serious impact on the health, safety, security or economic well-being of citizens or even prevent the effective functioning of governments or other agencies. For this reason, in this paper we present a distributed architecture, named CYBERSENS, aimed at preventing, early detecting, and mitigating cyber attacks to critical infrastructure networks. CYBERSENS is an advanced IDS/IPS system specially tailored for securing
