Subject [jira] Updated: (GERONIMO-419) Lockout after N failed logins
Date Sat, 27 Aug 2005 18:34:04 GMT
     [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GERONIMO-419?page=all ]

Aaron Mulder updated GERONIMO-419:
----------------------------------

    Fix Version: 1.0
    Description: 
It would be nice if the default security realms supported locking an account after a certain
number of consecutive failed logins.  Lacking that, it would be nice if they supported a configurable
delay on a failed login attempt.  Both methods help defend against brute force login attacks.

This is a pretty low priority, but IMHO it still goes on the "nice to have" list.

    Environment: 
       Priority: Minor  (was: Trivial)

Either strategy could easily be implemented via a new LoginModule.
