Configure the default behaviour in case of denying access after failed login attempts

This document (000021275) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.


NeuVector’s default configuration allows a maximum of 5 failed login attempts and then locks your account for 60 minutes.
The error you will encounter if you match this configuration will be:

Temporarily blocked because of too many login failures

It is undoubtedly a great thing to counter possible Brute Force Attacks, but in the real world, it may be necessary to adjust these parameters. How can it be done?


The modification can be done in 2 ways: from console or as-code.


1. Settings > Users, API Keys & Roles > Authentication and Security Policies
2. Edit the parameters under Deny Access after Failed Login Attempts:
    - Maximum Number of Failed Attempts Allowed
    - Allowed Access Again after Time (Minutes)

AS-CODE during installation

Below is a snippet of the Helm Chart values ​​with controller secret to adjust these parameters ->
    enabled: true
        always_reload: true
        active_profile_name: default
        - name: default
          enable_block_after_failed_login: <BOOLEAN_TRUE_OR_FALSE>
