Summary: A passphrase strength checking and policy enforcement toolset

passwdqc is a password/passphrase strength checking and policy
enforcement toolset, including a PAM module (pam_passwdqc), command-line
programs (pwqcheck, pwqfilter, and pwqgen), and a library (libpasswdqc).

pam_passwdqc is normally invoked on passphrase changes by programs
such as passwd(1). It is capable of checking password or passphrase
strength, enforcing a policy, and offering randomly-generated
passphrases, with all of these features being optional and easily

pwqcheck and pwqgen are standalone passphrase strength checking and
random passphrase generator programs, respectively, which are usable
from scripts.

The pwqfilter program searches, creates, or updates binary passphrase
filter files, which can also be used with pwqcheck and pam_passwdqc.

libpasswdqc is the underlying library, which may also be used from
third-party programs.
