What is Fail2Ban? İnstallation and Usage

Hello  everyone. Today I will write to you about Fail2Ban systems

You can follow us on twitter @berkdusunur

Okay let's start :)

What is fail2ban?

As technology advances, methods of attack, as well as protection methods, are developing. 
Fail2ban is a nice python application that allows you to reject your server's log files for a period of time that you determine again the IP address of a failed login attempt on a number you specify.

How To İnstall Fail2Ban

I am remotely connected to a linux hosting server

First I update packages

"apt-get update"      "apt-get upgrade"

 Then install the required package with "apt-get install fail2ban"


I have not upgraded any packages I have already installed

Bckup Fail2Ban Main Configuration File

All configuration files are found under /etc/fail2ban directory. The main configuration file is /etc/fail2ban/jail.conf. Its a good idea to take backup of main config file to avoid merges during upgrades. Take local copy of /etc/fail2ban/jail.conf file as shown below:

cp /etc/fail2ban/jail.conf /etc/fail2ban/jail.local

Once the Fail2ban configuration file is copied, you need to make changes and additions to the jail.local file. Open the "jail.local" file with any text editor (vim, vi, nano etc.) and make the changes as follows.

Ok folks. There are many settings here. ignoreip, bantime, findtime, maxretry,

For now I will only configure the maxretry setting

This default is five

I have no other setup to do. I will do brute force on my ssh service

Ok this is the attacker's ip address =

"proxychains hydra -s 2222 -l admin -P user_pass.txt ssh"

and view the blocks that come with the server

"cat /var/log/fail2ban.log | grep Found"

Today we have implemented the fail2ban systems as your applications. Thank you for reading. Leave me an e-mail for your requests and suggestions berkdusunurx@gmail.com
