>From what I understand, given the contents of /etc/passwords, it is possible 
for an individual to use this information, along with crypt and a dictionary 
or a brute force attempt to figure out what are your passwords.

Does PAM provide us with greater security (does it still use /etc/passwords 
or shadow passwords, and is it easy to configure with most software that 
supports it?
