 passwords to make sure they are not too weak during password change.

libpam-cracklib-dbgsym: debug symbols for libpam-cracklib
libpam-doc: Documentation of PAM

 Contains documentation (in HTML, ASCII, and PostScript format) for libpam,
 the Pluggable Authentication Modules library, a library that enables the
 local system administrator to choose how applications authenticate users.

libpam-modules: Pluggable Authentication Modules for PAM

 This package completes the set of modules for PAM. It includes the module as well as some specialty modules.

libpam-modules-bin: Pluggable Authentication Modules for PAM - helper binaries

libpam-runtime: Runtime support for the PAM library

 Contains configuration files and directories required for

libpam0g: Pluggable Authentication Modules library

 Contains the shared library for Linux-PAM, a library that enables the
 local system administrator to choose how applications authenticate users.
 In other words, without rewriting or recompiling a PAM-aware application,
 it is possible to switch between the authentication mechanism(s) it uses.
 One may entirely upgrade the local authentication system without touching
 the applications themselves.

libpam0g-dbgsym: debug symbols for libpam0g
libpam0g-dev: Development files for PAM

 Contains C header files and development libraries for libpam, the Pluggable
 Authentication Modules, a library that enables the local system

 PAM decouples applications from the authentication mechanism, making it
 possible to upgrade the authentication system without recompiling or
 rewriting the applications.
