for PAM authentication look at
http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/libs...m-6.html#ss6.3


If your system is using OpenLDAP in it's auth scheme you need to look at slapo-ppolicy
http://www5f.biglobe.ne.jp/~inachi/o...ppolicy.5.html

These allow you to select elements to enforce compley password, password age (min and max), length, prevention of re-use of a password, etc..
