mkpwdict(1M)		System Administration Commands		  mkpwdict(1M)

NAME
       mkpwdict	- maintain password-strength checking database

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/sbin/mkpwdict [-s  dict1,... ,dictN] [-d destination-path]

DESCRIPTION
       The  mkpwdict command adds words	to the dictionary-lookup database used
       by pam_authtok_check(5) and passwd(1).

       Files containing	words to be added to the database can be specified  on
       the  command-line  using	 the -s	flag. These source files should	have a
       single word per line, much like /usr/share/lib/dict/words.

       If -s is	omitted, mkpwdict will use the value of	DICTIONLIST  specified
       in /etc/default/passwd (see passwd(1)).

       The database is created in the directory	specified by the -d option. If
       this option is omitted, mkpwdict	uses the value of DICTIONDBDIR	speci-
       fied  in	 /etc/default/passwd  (see passwd(1)). The default location is
       /var/passwd.

OPTIONS
