Our searchable database of Worldwide Encryption Products is availabe at: https://ediscoverypeople.com/databases/infosec/worldwide-encryption-products
Our goal is to include all encryption products, including rewrites, forks, and distinctive variants. If you're aware of an encryption product not reflected in this database, provide details using our Encryption Product Notification Form. If approved for inclusion in our database of Worldwide Encryption Products, and if you're the cryptographer who invented the new encryption product, you'll be eligible for attribution that includes a profile page and link to your website. And, we'll feature your encryption product in our newsletter.
In a recent survey of worldwide encryption products, esteemed cryptographers and researchers highlighted widespread global distribution of encryption technologies. Here is a link to a summary of the survey results; as well, included is a chart that depicts the number of encryption products attributable to 55 countries.
