[New: openFATE 311124] Consolidate faillog, pam_tally, pam_tally2, pam_faillock
Feature added by: Thorsten Kukuk (kukuk)

Feature #311124, revision 1
Title: Consolidate faillog, pam_tally, pam_tally2, pam_faillock

openSUSE Distribution: Unconfirmed
Requester: Important

Requested by: Thorsten Kukuk (kukuk)
Partner organization:

There are four different ways to track the number of failed logins and react to
this: faillog, pam_tally, pam_tally2, pam_faillock. They are all incompatible
together and pretty hard next to impossible to configure.

Goal: Write one new module "pam_faillog", which replaces all of them. Should be
able to read all current databases, supports all features together but uses
advanced PAM functionality to make configuration very easy.

The module depends on correct behavior of calling application, which means we
need some checks if application behaves correct and maybe fix them.
