The Industry 4.0 movement is promoting increased connectivity between smart devices. Inexpensive computational devices such as single board computers are enabling the manufacturing industry to realise considerable increases in efficiencies and performance, as previously disconnected processes are now being interlinked into digital supply chains.
Cyberphysical systems exploit the interconnectedness of Industry 4.0 and use a variety of data sources to inform the control and actuation of physical entities, such as those in manufacturing systems.
Such tight integration raises concerns for cybersecurity and trust, whether it be from nefarious agents who wish to conduct industrial espionage or from system vulnerabilities that may interrupt the smooth operation of supply chains.
This Special Issue explores the design, implementation, and evaluation of cybersecurity technologies and approaches as they are utilized to support the realisation of Industry 4.0.
A fundamental component of Industry 4.0 is the ability to sense physical phenomena and provide data as an input. This Special Issue directly addresses the need to work with sensors and sensor data, especially with regard to how we can ensure that data are held and transported securely.

Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Machines is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
