security.debian.org may include tools with very few testing. I'm not sure it is a good idea. Normal security updates, for normal people, are intended to be done by "stable"'s updates (yes, I know nobody really cares about "slink", I regret it), not by RedHat's method of having a separate upload for security updates.
