I did not get any help in creating an auto-import feature for the key ..
but this is now implemented as is on CentOS-6 and CentOS-7 'updates'
repo.  Usage is completely optional and the default is not used.

You can now enable this option for the 'updates' repo in CentOS-6 and


See 'man yum.conf' for more on either CentOS-6 and CentOS-7 .. here is
the info from CentOS-5:

repo_gpgcheck: Either ‘1’ or ‘0’. This tells yum whether or not it
should perform a GPG signature check on the repodata.  The default is ‘0’.
