With the growing development of cloud manufacturing (CM) applications in industry, one concern potential users have is security of the data, remote machines and operators. Potential security risks in communication with remotely operated manufacturing equipment have been of recent interest. The purpose of this paper is to provide an overview of security measures being considered to ensure the protection of data being sent to physical machines in a CM system. Topics covered include: internet of things, remote equipment control, security concerns in remote equipment control, existing proposed security measures for remote equipment control, and the future outlook of remote equipment control and security in CM systems.
