This feature (yum --security) has not been implemented and CentOS
developers are working on it. See the thread on the mailing list:


the last post from Karanbir Singh was on Oct 3. Here is a partial quote:

    I've been testing the yum-security stuff at this end and still have a
    few issues to work out ( mostly involves reading AUP's and T&C's from
    various places to make sure the metadata being consumed does not violate
    anything )

Hope this helps,
