Patch Compliance

Due to federal regulations, we have a need at work to generate patch compliance reports on RHEL and CentOS boxes. We need to be able to see a list of server and see what security related patches have been installed that have been issues by red hat.

Is there a solution out there (preferably open source), that would allow me to do this?

But that doesn't tell what RPMs I need to have installed. Has anyone written a script to do this?

yum update will list (if any) updates available, but not applied.

Does YUM work with RHEL 4 or only with CentOS?

Yum works with both.
