Hello Goran & all Erlang users,

There is a "cracklib" Open Source C library available for UNIX (and
possibly other) systems which includes the functions you need (e.g.
pro-active "FascistCheck" of passwords). You can either interface this
library to Erlang, or re-write some subset of it in Erlang. It's not a
readily available Erlang-only solution, but you may find it useful

Yours sincerely,
Dr Leonid Timochouk
