Summary: A passphrase strength checking and policy enforcement toolset

passwdqc is a passphrase strength checking and policy enforcement
toolset, including a PAM module (pam_passwdqc), command-line programs
(pwqcheck 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.

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