libpam-cracklib: PAM module to enable cracklib support

 This package includes libpam_cracklib, a PAM module that tests
 passwords to make sure they are not too weak during password change.

libpam-cracklib-dbgsym: debug symbols for libpam-cracklib
libpam-doc: Documentation of PAM

 Contains documentation (in HTML, ASCII, and PostScript format) for libpam,
 the Pluggable Authentication Modules library, a library that enables the
 local system administrator to choose how applications authenticate users.

libpam-modules: Pluggable Authentication Modules for PAM

 This package completes the set of modules for PAM. It includes the module as well as some specialty modules.

libpam-modules-bin: Pluggable Authentication Modules for PAM - helper binaries

 This package contains helper binaries used by the standard set of PAM
 modules in the libpam-modules package.

libpam-modules-bin-dbgsym: debug symbols for libpam-modules-bin
libpam-modules-dbgsym: debug symbols for libpam-modules
libpam-runtime: Runtime support for the PAM library

 Contains configuration files and directories required for
 authentication to work on Debian systems. This package is required
 on almost all installations.

libpam0g: Pluggable Authentication Modules library

 Contains the shared library for Linux-PAM, a library that enables the
 local system administrator to choose how applications authenticate users.
 In other words, without rewriting or recompiling a PAM-aware application,
 it is possible to switch between the authentication mechanism(s) it uses.
 One may entirely upgrade the local authentication system without touching
 the applications themselves.

libpam0g-dbgsym: debug symbols for libpam0g
libpam0g-dev: Development files for PAM

 Contains C header files and development libraries for libpam, the Pluggable
 Authentication Modules, a library that enables the local system
 administrator to choose how applications authenticate users.
 PAM decouples applications from the authentication mechanism, making it
 possible to upgrade the authentication system without recompiling or
 rewriting the applications.
