AFAIK it's /etc/login.defs which is deprecated on PAM enabled systems (/etc/pam.d).

you can use pam_passwdqc module in /etc/pam.d/system-auth file

for example :

password required pam_passwdqc.so min=disabled,12,8,6,5 max=40

For locking out users after a certain number of failures, look at pam_tally. Also look at man 8 faillog.
