Summary/Abstract: During the first afterwar years, Counter-inteligence service (KOS) played an important role in the process of consolidation of the Yugoslav Communists’ authority. As well as the other parts of Yugoslav security system, KOS has emerged from OZN-a (Department for people’s protection). Important moment for further efficient functioning of KOS was the Resolution of Informbeaureau and its effects. Significant number of the Yugosalv Army Forces’ members has, at first moment, declared a support to its contents. Following repression provided with many IB supporters continued their activities illegally. When the raids and arrests continued, they have tried to hide their activities in order to avoid them, so the KOS members had to reapply the old measures and techniques, mostly the use of net of informers. Situation was even more complicated since such a net, especially among the officers, so far haven’t existed, so there was needed a certain amount of time to be built. During the confrontation with Comminform, a genuine transformation of KOS into a secret service of Soviet type has occurred.
