How does it work?

Example: A user tries to log on a system and fails because of bad credentials or an inactivated account. This failure can be recorded with BlackRed. After three failures within a certain time the account gets locked for an extended period of time. This limits brute force attacks. All time periods are configurable.

In a desktop application you would record the username in question with BlackRed. In a web environment, the requester’s IP address would be the perfect.

In the redis database, two lists are kept: A watchlist that records the failures, and the blacklist that contains blocked items.
