    Fedora Security


    Can anyone explain to me if Fedora has a security mechanism built into it? Debian has a dedicated repository for security packages and it's very nice to update packages as soon as a new version is up.

    Well, Fedora does have an update agent, if that is what you mean. They usually do release new package versions almost right away if there's some security problem. I'm not sure just what you mean with `security packages', I have to admit.

    I think the update agent is exactly what I'm referring to. Once there is a security patch, a new version is usually released which you can install by updating the system.
