Using pam_cracklib and pwscore

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Hi, I have an fc17 system and wanted to configure password strength capabilities. However, it appears that pam_cracklib isn't implemented in /etc/pam.d/passwd. Do I need to modify this file as per the pam_cracklib man page? It says that it can enforce changes such as the number of differences from the old password. How does it know what the old password is? I assume the application changing the password would have to prompt the user for it, so it can be provided to pam_cracklib? Are there any cracklib experts on this forum? Thanks, Alex (HowTos)
