The signature keys are not verified. There is no signature for the package you are trying to use. There is no harm in installing if you know from where you have downloaded the file and trust the source. Else, use the package manager to install it.

Just use the --nosignature option to disable signature checking. But you will need to do this with care. If you know from where you downloaded the file and trust the source you can use this option to install the file.
You could do this way

rpm -ivh --nosignature <package>.rpm

But it would be better if you use the YUM package manager to install the packages. It would take care of your dependencies as well.

yum install <package>
