Need to lock users out after 3 failed login attempts

Post by Rashmi Kodibagk » Tue, 25 Apr 1995 04:00:00



I have a requirement to lock out users if more than 3 attempts
are made to login using a valid login id and invalid passwords.
Solaris doesnt provide this? Is there any public domain
security software available to do this?
Thanking in advance for any responses.


 
 
 

1. Need to lock users login after 3 failed attempts

Hi,

Does anyone no of a version of the login program that will simply lock
the users account after three failed login attempts?  We are currently
using a security program, but since this is all we use it for, it
would be simpler to just use a modified login program.  I thought I
had found it with logdaemon package since it claims "fascist login
procedures" but I guess it is for logging not logging in as it
compiled fine under Sun 2.5.1 and does not log me out after any number
of failed attempts.  So: any ideas for other programs or did I compile
logdeamon wrong?

thanks
