pam_shield 0.9.5

A PAM module that uses iptables to lock out script kiddies that probe your computer for open logins
pam_shield is a PAM module that uses iptables to lock out script kiddies that probe your computer for open logins and/or easy guessable passwords. The project is meant as an aid to protect public computers on the open internet.

Everybody knows it is unwise to leave computers largely unprotected connected to the internet. However, there are cases in which this is still common practice. For exampe, academic sites with hundreds of users often have a policy of allowing logins from over the world. They are under constant attack by "kiddies" trying to break in to the system by password guessing. pam_shield aims to detect and block these "kiddies".

pam_shield was developed by Walter de Jong in 2006 and 2007.
