HTTP spam security for Flask.

Project description

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:

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_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

Per-view options

Example code

from flask import Flask
from flask_ipban import IpBan

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

def normal():
    return 'Normal'


  • Apache 2.0
