Does the NSA publish their evaluations of such firmware?
I don't actually know for sure, but my guess is that securities issues aside, publishing such a technical evaluation would be forbidden because it could reveal the manufacturer's trade secrets. Similarly, it could be construed as an endorsement (or lack thereof). These are all things that the NSA does not want to involve itself with.
