Andrew McCall <address@hidden> described the package as follows:
License: lgpl
Other License: 
Package: Passcheck - A password sanity tool
System name: passcheck
Type: GNU

Pass check is a password sanity checker, designed
to be used as a tool by the various password 
changing programs.

This is a drop in replacement or rewrite of the 
original cracklib, and shares no code with the 
original(note: as they do the same thing, 
there are a few similar algorithms).

The intent of this rewrite is to:

1. to provide an updated version of the somewhat difficult
to find cracklib

2. to allow DIY\'ers a ready to use cracklib

3. to make an even more thourough and accurate cracklib

4. to provide a LGPL\'d free software implementation, versus the
questionable (Original) Artistic license(listed as non-free at

Unlike the original cracklib, this library uses the standard
system dictionary, and requires no further special files.

Current Source Code:

Other Software Required:
* C compiler 
* standard wordlist dictionary(usually placed in /usr/share/dict/words)
* considering adding zlib for compressed dictionary support
