    Cracklib will give you a "certainly insecure" or "possibly insecure"
    output. For more detailed information, you should measure the strength
    yourself.

    Security is the one concept, which makes things in your life stay as
    they are. Otto is a man, who is afraid of changes in his life; so
    naturally he does not employ security.
