K3VIDS© Tool

A visual based IDS capable of discriminating 5G cyberattacks.

K3Y’s Visual-based Intrusion Detection System

K3VIDS is a visual-based intrusion detection and prevention solution, which takes full advantage of signature/specification-based methods, Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques and visual analytics in order to detect potential intrusions and anomalies

K3VIDS is composed of several detectors and open-source cybersecurity-related sensors, such as Snort, Suricata, Nmap, OpenWAS and honeypot applications, thus providing continuously a plethora of security logs that are normalised and correlated with each other, utilising association rules. With respect to the AI-based detectors, K3VIDS includes a variety of Machine Learning (ML) / Deep Learning (DL) based detectors devoted to recognising cyberattacks and anomalies related mainly to industrial communication protocols like Modbus/TCP, DNP3, IEC 61850, IEC 60870-5-104, MQTT, NTP, SSH and FTP.

K3VIDS platform offers the following services

– Advanced Data Analysis & Visualisation

K3VIDS adopts dimensionality reduction techniques, binary representations and visual analytics in order to discriminate unknown anomalies.

– AI-enabled Anomaly Detection


AI models relying on operational measurements are utilised for recognising potential anomalies.

– Decentralised Architecture


The various detectors and cybersecurity sensors can be deployed in a remote manner individually, while the security events and alerts are stored in a scalable database and visualised by a dynamic dashboard with real-time statistics.

– Large-scale Deployment


K3VIDS has been designed in order to support large-scale industrial environments related to critical infrastructures.

– SDN-enabled Mitigation

Regarding the mitigation activities, K3VIDS takes advantage of the Software-Defined Networking (SDN) technology, guiding the SDN controller to disrupt and/or re-direct the malicious network flows. Ιf SDN is not supported, then K3VIDS uses mitigation agents that update the firewall configuration based on the information of the security events and alerts.
