Who hands out certifications for that? And if it costs money, the most
likely answer is probably not, because cygwin is coded by volunteers
who don't have the resources to get certifications to various standards.
The warranty clauses of the GPL (clausee 11 and 12) are applicable here;
you get what you paid for. If you really need DEP/NX compliance,
consider paying Red Hat for a cygwin support contract.
