[CentOS] A couple of security questions

Hello, I'd like to ask a couple of things:

1) I would like to move from Debian to CentOS.
One thing I will probably miss is the debsecan tool.
This utility sends me a mail whenever there is a change regarding the
vulnerabilities' status on my system.
It lists new ones, resolved ones and current ones.

Is there anything similar for CentOS?

2) I read that RHEL packages are compiled with various security
technologies including Exec Shield, FORTIFY_SOURCE and
fstack-protector.

Does this apply to CentOS too?


Thanks!

Regards,
Luigi
