Limiting Login Rate

After a user and/or IP address repeatedly fails to log into PrivX, you can temporarily prevent them from making further login attempts to PrivX. This can help secure your PrivX against brute-force-access attempts.

To set limits for failed logins, perform the following on each PrivX server:

  1. Modify the settings under the ​[loginratelimit]​​ section in the configuration file ​​/opt/privx/etc/auth-default-config.toml​​.

  2. Restart the PrivX services to apply:

    # systemctl restart privx
