Oracle Password Complexity Configuration

Hi All,

I want to configured password complexity on oracle database level like,

• The password has a minimum length.

• The password is not the same as the username.

• The password has at least one alpha, one numeric, and one punctuation mark character.

• The password is not a simple or obvious word, such as welcome, account, database, or user.

• The password differs from the previous password by at least 3 characters.

Could you please someone let me know that where should I configured these setting means which configuration file.

I also found on the internet that the Oracle's password complexity verification routine can be specified using a PL/SQL script (UTLPWDMG.SQL). Is this file where I set the parameters as per the requirement or should I use init_<sid>.ora file.

Thanks in advance.
