In 2022 a total of 370 certifications were completed. This means that the number of certificates dropped (slightly – in 2021 – 399 certifications) for the first time in the last 5 years. There could be several reasons for this decrease:
This year is quite exciting for us, because for the first time jtsec appears in this report. In addition, we have become part of Applus Cybersecurity Labs (Applus+Lightship+jtsec) which makes us among the laboratories with the most certifications achieved this year.
We obtain the information using CCScraper, which is a Python script that automatically analyzes information from the official Common Criteria portal and the portals of the several certification bodies. This tool has been developed and improved by jtsec in recent years, offering a comprehensive collection of data that allows us to have an accurate view of the sector.
This report shows data for 2022, the last five years, as well as historical trends since the beginning of the application of Common Criteria as an evaluation methodology. If you would like to know any specific statistic that you think would be interesting for the community or you find any mistake in the data, please send us your comments and we will include it in the next version of the report.
