  Description     : Password strength checking for Kerberos KDCs

krb5-strength provides a password quality plugin for the MIT Kerberos KDC
(specifically the kadmind server) and an external password quality
program for use with the Heimdal kpasswdd server.  Passwords can be
tested with CrackLib, checked against a CDB database of known weak
passwords, checked for length, checked for non-printable or non-ASCII
characters that may be difficult to enter reproducibly, required to
contain a non-alphabetic character, or any combination of these tests.

No dictionary is shipped with this package.  A CrackLib dictionary can be
created with the tools in cracklib-runtime, a CDB database can be created
from a password list (obtained separately) using the tools included in
this package, or both.
