Timeout between failed login attempts
this is my first question on this forum.
I have to configure a timeout (better if increasing) between failed local login attempts.
I saw that with pam I can block an user, but, since I have to do this check even on the root account, it is better for me only block the user for a configured timeout.
I'm using redhat 9, and the pam version is 0.75, and the option unlock_timeout is not present.
Thanks in advance,
