A middleware that secures URLS.

Project Description

Django SSL Slapper

Django-SSL-Slapper is a middleware that allows you to set urls to ssl only. It can also redirects anonymous users off your https service onto your http. Logged-in users may also be directed to https.

Django-SSL-Slapper can also use cache to count the number of login attempts and slap away excessive entries (default more than 20 per minute). THe user account is temporary locked for a timer period (default 1 minute). The default settings should disrupt automated attempts for entry without bothering even the quickest users.


```pip install django-ssl-slapper```

Add ```'ssl_slapper.middleware.ssl_redirect'``` to middleware in your django settings file for redirection

Add ```'ssl_slapper.middleware.rate_limit'``` to middleware in your django settings file for rate_limiting. You will want to enable memcache for this.

It is recommended that you set ```SESSION_COOKIE_SECURE = True``` to ensure that your site is secured to use https only for authenticated users.

That's it! The middleware shuld automatically detect your login pages and slap away!
