Security mitigations in OpenWRT

I am curious if OpenWRT is built using things like ASLR or DEP/NX as a protection against network attacks.

As it starts to run more applications, such as OpenVPN and Tor, this could be helpful in reducing the likelihood of exploitable vulnerabilities.

Does it have full memory protection between the various running processes like a full x86 Linux environment, or are there limitations in an embedded device?
