Blocking IP address after x failed login attempts?

In my honest opinion, no "secure" computer system is secure. I mean, just look at the number of keygens available for nearly every application on the planet. People just tend to crack...well...everything.

I therefore agree with you inparo. A lock doesn't keep a burglar out, it just slows them down. I remember once at Johannesburg airport, I put a lock on one of my suitcases. Someone got into the bag, without even touching the lock, they just clipped the "ears" of the zippers. Shows you, security sometimes just gives you false piece of mind.

About blocking by cookies, it's against my policy to use cookies, more and more people are turning cookies off, and I've chosen to use server side sessions.

Any ideas on implementing the 15 minute blockout, should a person fail to login say 5 times in a row?
