Common Criteria Certification for SQL Server 2019

We are very pleased to announce that SQL Server 2019 has obtained Common Criteria certification for the Windows and the Linux version.


SQL19 on Windows certificate


Overall, SQL Server 2019 is the 7th major release that has successfully completed this security attestation. It started with Yukon in 2005, followed by Katmai (2008) and Denali (2012), and continued with SQL Server 2014, 2016, and 2017. Thanks to several internal and external changes to the process, we were able to accomplish the SQL Server 2019 certification in a much shorter time compared to SQL Server 2017 and earlier versions.
