'pwdutils' is a collection of utilities to manage the passwd and shadow user information. The difference from the shadow suite is that the pwdutils programs can also modify the information stored in NIS, NIS+, or LDAP. PAM is used for user authentication and changing the password. The package contains passwd, chage, chfn, chsh, and a daemon for changing the password on a remote machine over a secure SSL connection. The daemon also uses PAM so that it can change passwords independent of where they are stored.
