The testing that is done is performed by our volunteer QA team.  We also
use the t_functional test suite:


You can see the output of the t_functional tests here:


BUT .. CentOS is a use it if it meets your requirements and "YOU" are
the authority who decides if it meets your standards and your
requirements for fitness, etc.

The CentOS EULA is here:


So, you need to decide what you want for security testing, security
auditing, bugs testing, intrusion detection, or accreditation.  The
CentOS team provides no statement of fitness or assurance of any kind.

Quite simply, we build the source code that Red Hat releases for RHEL,
debranding as required by their trademark policy.  If it meets your
requirements for fitness then you can use it as you see fit.  But you
assume all responsibility for determining fitness for use.
