This may be a question better directed at the CentOS mailing list as I
doubt anyone here is a CentOS package maintainer for paramiko. You're
going to need to build it yourself if it's not in yum. Make sure you
have the python development headers installed, and issue the commands:

tar xzf paramiko-1.7.4.tar.gz
cd paramiko-1.7.4
python build
su -c "python install"

Alternately, you can issue

python bdist_rpm

to get an RPM you can install on other machines as well (it will show
up in the ./dist/ directory relative to Good luck.
