Product security certifications for tvOS

This article contains references for key product certifications, cryptographic validations, and security guidance for tvOS platforms.

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

Contact us at security-certifications@apple.com if you have any questions.

The following documents can be useful in context with these certifications and validations:

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.
