Description : library for password generation and password quality checking
The libpwquality library purpose is to provide common functions for
password quality checking and also scoring them based on their apparent
randomness. The library also provides a function for generating random
passwords with good pronounceability. The library supports reading and
parsing of a configuration file.

In the package there are also very simple utilities that use the library
function and PAM module that can be used instead of pam_cracklib. The
module supports all the options of pam_cracklib.
