Trusted HP-UX question

on TRUSTED HP-UX is there a way to set a mechanism by which the user's password cannot use consecutive three characters from the recent old password. Any way to implement this?

Thanks

Shalom,

/etc/default/security

I believe there is a man page on this and it even works on non-trusted systems.

Password Selection and Generation

On Trusted Systems, the system administrator can control how passwords are generated. The following password generation options are available:

*
User-generated passwords.

A password screening option is available to check for the use of login and group names, login and group name permutations, and palindromes.

A new password must differ from the old password by at least three characters.
