this is something I wondered quite some time about. It definetely
doesn't meet the narrow definition of this list's purpose but I
thought it might be worth to ask anyway.
Almost unanimously, security standards for NT boxes suggest to
configure an account lock after several unsuccessful login attempts.
Searching the web in and out didn't show me anything similar for *nix
based systems. Is this concept too alien to *nix to be implemented or
should I - once again - question my research capabilities?
