In addition to the general certificates listed here, other certificates may have been issued in order to demonstrate specific security requirements for some markets.

Cryptographic module validations
All Apple FIPS 140-2/-3 Conformance Validation Certificates are on the CMVP web site. Apple actively engages in the validation of the CoreCrypto User and CoreCrypto Kernel modules for each major release of an operating system. Validation of conformance can only be performed against a final module release version and formally submitted upon OS public release.
The CMVP maintains the validation status of cryptographic modules under four separate lists depending on their current status. The modules may begin in the Implementation Under Test List and then proceed to the Modules in Process List. Once validated they appear on the validated cryptographic modules list, and after five years are moved to the "historical" list.
In 2020 the CMVP adopt the international standard, ISO/IEC 19790, as the basis for FIPS 140-3.
For more information about FIPS 140-2/-3 validations see Apple Platform Security.

These previous OS X versions had cryptographic module validations. Those greater than five years old are listed by the CMVP with "historical" status:
- macOS Sierra 10.12
- OS X El Capitan 10.11
- OS X Yosemite 10.10
- OS X Mavericks 10.9
- OS X Mountain Lion 10.8
- OS X Lion 10.7

Common Criteria (CC) certifications
NIAP typically maintain evaluations on the Product Compliant List for 2 years after which they are reviewed for conformance with the current assurance maintenance policy. The CC Portal may maintain products on the certified product list for 5 years.
The Common Criteria Portal lists certifications that can be mutually recognized under the Common Criteria Recognition Arrangement (CCRA).
For more information about Common Criteria certifications see Apple Platform Security.
Evaluations with NIAP for macOS evaluations using the General purpose operating system and full disk encryption(AA and EE) Protection Profiles are underway.
