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 <https://pypi.python.org/pypi/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__)
IpBan(app)


Enclosed is a small example application

Options
-------

- ``ban_count``, default ``50``, Number of observations before banning
- ``ban_seconds``, default ``60``, Number of seconds 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
