It would be good if there is a way we can install GRSecurity Repo like http://repos.coredumb.net/grsecurity/grsecurity.repo added to CentOS yum Repo to update kernel for GRSecurity

It's unlikely that cPanel & WHM will pursue automatically installing custom 3rd party yum repositories like GRSecurity, EPEL, or other 3rd party repositories.


Customizations at this level are generally expected to be left up to the server administrator to decide upon. For instance, adding the repo you've mentioned is as simple as running the command:


yum-config-manager --add-repo http://repos.coredumb.net/grsecurity/grsecurity.repo

( RedHat Enteprise Linux Documentation on YUM Repositories )


Should significant demand be shown for a particular 3rd party repo, the issue may be revisited.


At this time, especially given the simplicity of adding custom repos, we do not want to increase complexity and run time of yum for all administrators by forcing yum to consider and check repos that cPanel & WHM does not inherently rely upon and which the admin may not even desire/intend to use.
