You probably want to read
I suppose. Cygwin installation can't be tampered with unless you override
the signature check. It doesn't matter how or where you are syncing your
local mirror from, setup.exe is going to check the gpg signature on the
setup.ini file it reads and it won't install any package that has a
different SHA512 checksum than what's noted (and been signed) in setup.ini.
If you want to do a check after mirroring, you'd need to roll your own
signature checking and setup.ini parsing.
