HTTP spam security for Flask.

Project description

IpBan: HTTP spam security for Flask

|PyPI Version|

IpBan is a Flask extension that can help protect against ip locations spamming url requests
against unknown pages. Often this is to search for security issues.

The default configuration:

- 50 attempts before ban
- 1 hour blocking period

Installation & Basic Usage

Install via `pip <>`_:


pip install flask-ipban

After installing, wrap your Flask app with a ``IpBan``:

.. code:: python

from flask import Flask
from flask_ipban import IpBan

app = Flask(__name__)

Enclosed is a small example application


- ``ban_count``, default ``50``, Number of observations before banning
- ``ban_minutes``, default ``60``, Number of minutes ip address is banned
- ``ip_ban.block(ip_address, permanent=True)`` - block the specific address forever
- ``ip_ban.add(reason='spite')`` - increase the observation for the current request ip

Per-view options

Sometimes you want to change the policy for a specific view. The
``force_https``, ``frame_options``, ``frame_options_allow_from``, and
``content_security_policy`` options can be changed on a per-view basis.

.. code:: python

from flask import Flask
from flask_ipban import IpBan, ALLOW_FROM

app = Flask(__name__)
ip_ban = IpBan(app)

def normal():
return 'Normal'

- Apache 2.0
