The advance of industrialization regarding the optimization of production to obtain greater
productivity and consequently generate more profits has led to the emergence of Industry 4.0, which
aims to create an environment called smart manufacturing. On the other hand, the Internet of Things
is a global network of interrelated physical devices, such as sensors, actuators, intelligent applications,
computers, mechanical machines, objects, and people, becoming an essential part of the Internet. These
devices are data sources that provide abundant information on manufacturing processes in an
industrial environment. A concern of this type of system is processing large sets of data and generating
knowledge. These challenges often raise concerns about security, more specifically cybersecurity.
Good cybersecurity practices make it possible to avoid damage to production lines and information.
With the growing increase in threats in terms of security, this paper aims to carry out a review of
existing technologies about cybersecurity in intelligent manufacturing and an introduction to the
architecture of the IoT and smart manufacturing.
