Summary: Pluggable passphrase quality checker

The pam_passwdqc is a passphrase strength checking module for PAM-aware
passphrase changing programs, such as passwd(1). In addition to
checking regular passwords, it offers support for passphrases and can
provide randomly generated ones. All features are optional and can be
(re-)configured without rebuilding.

The package additionally includes libpasswdqc (a passphrase strength
checking library), pwqcheck (a standalone passphrase strength checking
program), and pwqgen (a standalone random passphrase generator program).

Current maintainer: Dmitry V. Levin
