           Summary: auto disable/block of ip address
           Product: Portable OpenSSH
           Version: 3.9p1
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: sshd

I would like to see the ssh deamon stop allowing attempts to connect from an ip
address after a certain number of failures. My logs tend to fill up after a
night of script kiddy hell. 

1) There should be a way to turn this off/on
2) A way to get the list and re-enable/remove an ip address.
3) A attempt count setting so that after X failures autoblocking happens 

I've grown very accustomed to something similar on AS400's.  It very hanndy to have.
