No, because nobody'd bother to pay the NCSA membership
fees and testing fees that are necessary for the "certification."
NCSA "certification" is a product marketing device, not a technical
milestone. As far as I am concerned the main significant conclusion
one can draw from the fact that a firewall was NCSA certified is that
the vendor gave NCSA a lot of money.
Any firewall vendors that want to pay me $15,000, I'll certify
your firewall too. :-P Heck, I'll do it for only $10,000. See
