Red Hat software package format: Linux: Package Management for CentOS

RPM packages were created by Red Hat. The RPM format is an archive that includes binary files, data files, metadata such as name, version, dependencies and description. They also include installation and uninstallation scripts. RPM packages support GPG signatures so users can be sure software they are installing hasn't been tampered with. RPM packages also keep track of metadata of all files installed and notes when that data has changed.
