Add ability to blacklist/block incoming IP after specific number of consecutive failed authentication attempts. The software would save blacklist to a simple text file. Maybe also save the date of blacklist on the same line....
example blacklist file....
192.168.0.55 5:27PM 1/2/2015
188.8.131.52 5:27PM 1/2/2015
User Interface Example....
Failed Consecutive Authentication Attempts Before Blocking Incoming IP: 3
[Click Here to Clear Blocked IP's]
[Click Here to View Blocked IP list]
This very simple feature would greatly increase security from brute force attacks.
