This paper discuss an enhanced security through unidirectional data transmission for Industrial IoT platform based on MMS (Manufacturing Message Specification).

The proposed platform supports unidirectional communication between networks using MQTT (Message Queue Telemetry Transport) broker, which acts as a gateway used in unidirectional communication. In addition, MoM protocol (MMS over MQTT) is designed for publishing and subscription functions of MQTT.

For Industrial IoT platform, the proposed scheme seems like effective and useful. In the regards of piratical concern, this paper have to discuss in terms of computation complexity and implementing issues.
Typos and grammatical errors have to trimmed for readability and clearness.
