When installing a package with yum, what is happening when 'Verifying' is displayed?

Solution Verified - Updated -


Starting with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.3, the output of yum install contains lines with Verifying:
RHEL6.3 the yum command is making a new 'Verifying step', as shown below:

    # yum install apr
    Running Transaction
      Installing : apr-1.3.9-3.el6_1.2.x86_64   1/1
    Installed products updated.
      Verifying  : apr-1.3.9-3.el6_1.2.x86_64   1/1

Why is Verifying displayed, what is happening at that point in time? Is there a way to bypass it?
