I need to implement some better control for passwords on a our slackware servers. I have always manually done this but the need for some automation routines to handle a lifetime check, length, complexity and history. Does anyone know of a utility that can assist me in this regard?
For password lifetimes, you can set the maximum age in
Unfortunately I haven't seen anything that keeps track of a password history, the best cracklib can do is compare against the previous password.
