libpwquality (library for password quality checking and generation)

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.

This requires: cracklib
