Project Description


We are looking for someone to design a simple software program that will run as a Windows Service. It will be an intrusion detection and prevention systems (IDPS). It must have these features:

Monitors Windows Event Log to detect failed login attempts

Ban IP addresses based on failed login attempts

Unban feature

Compatibility with Windows Server 2003/2008/2008R2/2012 and Windows XP/Vista/7/8

Run as a Windows Service

Service can be set to auto-start after system reboot

Have a simple user interface


Some sort of a log to show bannings/unbannings

Software Licensing. We wish to license this software to potential customers.

There must be a settings menu to adjust banning parameters. For example: 3 failed logins in a 5 minute timeframe will ban the IP for 24 hours. And will unban the IP after 24 hours automatically.

Each of the numbers above are a separate setting.

We are hoping to build a relationship with you and ask for continued support after project completion, with compensation of course. Thank you
