Modify a user password.

      passwd [options...] 

   -d, --delete        delete the password for the named account (root only)

   -f, --force         force operation (effectively calls `chfn'?)

   -k, --keep-tokens   keep non-expired authentication tokens

   -l, --lock          lock the named account (root only)

   -S, --status        report password status on the named account (root only)

   --stdin             read new tokens from stdin (root only)

   -u, --unlock        unlock the named account (root only)

   -?, --help          Show this help message

   --usage             Display brief usage message

If no options are specified – passwd will change the password of the currently logged in user – will prompt for the old and new passwords.

Password aging (for new accounts) can be set to enforce a limited lifetime for each password: /etc/login.defs
