password difficulty


Hi
i am running solaris 10
i would like to know if there is a way to make users choose a more difficult password to sign on to their profile?
i would like to have these requirements on a password: capital letters, special charaters, numbers.

thnx in advance

Have a look at the password complexity tunables in the /etc/default/passwd file

Indeed, /etc/default contains files where several tunables can be set.
