comment How secure are passwords with under 20 characters length?
I did the rainbows tables for all ASCII character LM hashes 64Gb took almost a week using 20 nodes my universities cluster. Take about 3 minutes to go through quite mental. Allows for cracking of all windows passwords <= 16 characters.

comment Display recent login failures on login
fail2ban is good to use. I've set on my latest vps my firewall to limit the number of ssh connections from a single ip within a time frame. So ufw limit ssh this means if someone tries to brute force ssh they have to slow down the attempt if not the firewall will ban them for a bit.

-f Flood ping. For every ECHO_REQUEST sent a period . is printed, while for ever ECHO_REPLY received a backspace is printed. This provides a rapid display of how many packets are being dropped. If interval is not given, it sets interval to zero and outputs packets as fast as they come back or one hundred times per second, whichever is more. Only the super-user may use this option with zero interval.
