pwdutils is a collection of utilities to manage the passwd and shadow user information. The difference to the shadow suite is that these utilities can also modify the information stored in NIS, NIS+, or LDAP. PAM is used for user authentication and changing the pasword. It contains passwd, chage, chfn, chsh, chpasswd, expiry, gpasswd, grpck, groupadd, groupdel, groupmod, grpunconv, newgrp, pwck, pwconv, pwunconv, useradd, userdel, usermod, vipw, and a daemon for changing the password on a remote machine over a secure SSL connection. The daemon also uses PAM, so it can change passwords no matter where they are stored.
