Solaris 9 adds that functionality to the passwd command and the PAM
On solaris 8, unless you code your own PAM authentication tokens
module, you're limited to password length and password expiration
Solaris 9 adds the functionality to define whether a password is
alpha-numeric, prevent people from making passwords containing their
user name, and a minimum difference in characters (so people can't
change their password from "blahblah1" to "blahblah2" for example) as
well as a few other features.
See the /etc/default/passwd file for details on the parameters you can
