How could one configure pam_passwdqc to implement this? I had been using pam_cracklib for this, and accomblished the above with these options: lcredit=-1 ucredit=-1 dcredit=-1 Having recently learned of pam_cracklib's deprecation, I wanted to replace it with something else. I first tried pam_passwdqc, but could not figure out how to make it require that passwords include at least one each of lower-case letters, upper-case letters, and digits. So I ended up switching to pam_pwquality, which is backwards compatible with pam_cracklib. That works, but I'd still like to know if it's possible to accomplish the same thing with pam_passwdqc. Thank you, James Dietrich
