fail2ban - a set of server and client programs to limit brute force authentication


Fail2Ban consists of a client, server and configuration files to limit brute force
authentication attempts.

The server program fail2ban-server is responsible for monitoring log files and issuing
ban/unban commands. It gets configured through a simple protocol by fail2ban-client,
which can also read configuration files and issue corresponding configuration commands to
the server.

For details on the configuration of fail2ban see the jail.conf(5) manual page. A jail (as
specified in jail.conf) couples filters and actions definitions for any given list of
files to get monitored.

For details on the command-line options of fail2ban-server see the fail2ban-server(1)
manual page.

For details on the command-line options and commands for configuring the server via
fail2ban-client see the fail2ban-client(1) manual page.

For testing regular expressions specified in a filter using the fail2ban-regex program may
be of use and its manual page is fail2ban-regex(1).


Fail2Ban is able to reduce the rate of incorrect authentications attempts however it
cannot eliminate the risk that weak authentication presents. Configure services to use
only two factor or public/private authentication mechanisms if you really want to protect

A local user is able to inject messages into syslog and using a Fail2Ban jail that reads
from syslog, they can effectively trigger a DoS attack against any IP. Know this risk and
configure Fail2Ban/grant shell access accordingly.
