yum update would not give you that version

so you will have to download from vendor website then have to install manual

you can download from here

Is there any way I can use something LIKE yum for this?  Maybe RPM or something?

No, there is no way. if you use CentOS, you are tied to their package management and the way updates are managed.


for example, it is usual in RedHat (CentOS being a clone) to remain on their current versions of the software BUT backport all security patches and maybe some functionality patched to their current version, to avoid breaking current configuratins.

that said, you do not need to update to OpenSSH v5 if it is because of security concerns, but only if you want some extended functionality. in such case you need to compile and create the RPM package from source.

I think this page will help you with the steps:
