How to check if Kernel is vulnerable

Hello to everyone.
I've been asked to check on the Intenet if the following Linux kernel have known vulnerabilities.
Here they are:
1)         kernel-2.6.32-696.el6.x86_64.rpm
2)         kernel-3.10.0-514.6.2.el7.x86_64.rpm

I normally check on https://www.cvedetails.com
but I only get vulnerabilities for kernel-2.6.32so it's missing the 696 .
Can someone give me an advice on how to be sure that the two Kernel Versions are not vulnerable?

thank you
Carlettus.

Thank you for your help.
exploit-db gives you a list of exploit for  a certain vulnerability, if a system is vulnerable may be the exploit it doesn't exist.
