[cryptography] Password non-similarity?

Hi All,

We're bouncing around ways to enforce non-similarity in passwords over
time: password1 is too similar too password2 (and similar to
password3, etc).

I'm not sure its possible with one way functions and block cipher residues.

Has anyone ever implemented a system to enforce non-similarity business rules?

Jeff
