Defines the minimum number of digits in a password.

In setting the mindigit attribute, the password must contain a digit when it is changed by the user.


In /etc/security/user, set the default user stanza mindigit attribute to 1-

chsec -f /etc/security/user -s default -a mindigit=1

This means that there must be at least 1 digit within an 8 character user password.
