How to Configure the Maximum Number of Consecutive Authentication Failures for Local Accounts

Created May 14, 2018 10:12:21 394 0 0 0
When cracking the password of a device, the malicious user may try multiple times. To prevent the password from being cracked, you can set the maximum number of consecutive authentication failures within the specified period. When the number of consecutive authentication failures within the specified period reaches the maximum, the user is locked. This function improves user password security.

For example, set the maximum number of consecutive authentication failures within 5 minutes to 3.
<HUAWEI> system-view
[~HUAWEI] aaa
[~HUAWEI-aaa] local-user authentication lock times 3 5
