Coverage

Axes is a Django plugin for keeping track of suspicious login attempts for your Django based website and implementing simple brute-force attack blocking.

The name is sort of a geeky pun, since it can be interpreted as:

  • access, as in monitoring access attempts, or
  • axes, as in tools you can use to hack (generally on wood).

Functionality

Axes records login attempts to your Django powered site and prevents attackers from attempting further logins to your site when they exceed the configured attempt limit.

Axes can track the attempts and persist them in the database indefinitely, or alternatively use a fast and DDoS resistant cache implementation.

Axes can be configured to monitor login attempts by IP address, username, user agent, or their combinations.

Axes supports cool off periods, IP address allow listing and block listing, user account allow listing, and other features for Django access management.
